Product in this article

Earlier this month, Xiaomi announced the release of the first 5G gaming phones - the Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro. Here are the key things you should know: 

  • 5G connectivity - but we're not sure how this will play out here in Malaysia since 5G isn't available in the country yet 
  • Supporting gaming accessories to be revealed 
  • Shoulder touchpads (only for the Pro variant) 
  • Partnership with Tencent for software optimization
  • Black Shark 3 is already available for pre-order from RM2,588; however, release for the Black Shark 3 Pro has been postponed indefinitely
