Black Shark has launched its latest gaming-centric smartphones, the 4S and 4S Pro, in China. The line-up carries a starting price-tag of CNY 2,699 (around Rs. 31,500) and is available for pre-orders via the company's official website. The handsets come with a 144Hz AMOLED display, pop-up shoulder gaming buttons, triple rear cameras, built-in 11 temperature sensors, and 120W fast-charging support. Here are more details.

Design and display: The phones offer up to 720Hz touch sampling rate

The Black Shark 4S and 4S Pro feature a punch-hole design with slim bezels and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The handsets bear a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) E4 AMOLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate, a 720Hz multi-finger touch sampling rate, 1,300-nits of brightness, HDR10+ support, and MEMC technology. They have "magnetic power-lifting shoulder buttons" for an enhanced gaming experience.

Fact: The devices have a 'sandwich' liquid cooling system

The Black Shark 4S and 4S Pro have a "sandwich" liquid cooling system, which uses a large liquid cooling plate, a liquid cooling tube, and a copper alloy substrate to form a 360-degree 3D heat dissipation system.

Cameras: They boast a 20MP selfie camera

The Black Shark 4S is equipped with a triple rear camera unit comprising a 48MP (f/1.79) primary sensor, an 8MP (f/2.4) ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP (f/2.4) super macro snapper. The 4S Pro also provides a similar camera arrangement but with a 64MP (f/1.79) main sensor. For selfies and video calling, the duo has a 20MP (f/2.45) front-facing camera.

Internals: They boot JoyUI 12.8 based on Android 11

The Black Shark 4S and 4S Pro are powered by Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 888+ 5G processors, respectively, combined with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. They boot Android 11-based JoyUI 12.8 and pack a 4,500mAh battery with 120W fast-charging support. For connectivity, they offer support for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, a headphone jack, and a Type-C port.

In addition to the Black and Foggy White colors, the vanilla Black Shark 4S model is also offered in a Gundam limited edition with Gundam red and blue engravings, customized UI, and themes.
