Earlier today, we heard that Tencent had been planning to acquire the gaming mobile phone manufacturer Black Shark and re-enter the mobile phone market.
At the same time, the report also said that after the acquisition of Black Shark Technology, it will be merged into the Tencent Group Platform and Content Business Group (PCG). This simply means that the key business of Black Shark Technology in the future will be VR equipment.
However, this also made many users concerned because many of them were thinking the company will close its gaming mobile phone business. Especially, there were worried about the Black Shark 5 series, which was about to debut according to the product plan.
According to the latest news from @Digital Chat Station, the manufacturer will launch two new phones in the Black Shark 5 series as scheduled. These two new phones have internal codes, Katyusha and Patriot. The one with the model number KTUS-A0 has been certified already.
Thus, even if there would be no new Black Shark mobile phones in the future, the Black Shark 5 will still be listed.
If recalling the previous leaks, the Black Shark 5 series will come with a dual-core 100W flash charge and around 4600mAh as standard. Inside, it will carry the current strongest flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. With a stronger high refresh screen than before, the gaming experience will be even better.
Honestly, we are concerned about this news as well. We mean Black Shark has been the pioneer in the mobile gaming smartphones markets. And it has been always launching phones different from ordinary devices. Their look and performance have almost no equals. Moreover, they became an inspiration for many other brands such as ASUS ROG, Nubia Red Magic, and Lenovo Legion. At the same time, the company has been spending too much on R&D. In effect, they have created many innovations.
Say, last year, Black Shark introduced a custom NVME solid-state drive SSD in the Black Shark 4 series. At the same time, it took the lead in introducing a disk array solution in the industry, bringing PC-side SSD solid-state drives to mobile phones. The storage and reading performance have been greatly improved. The storage speed of mobile phones ushered in a revolutionary growth phase.
Anyway, everything has its end. We regret that for Black Shark it came sooner than expected.
