Black Shark 5 and 5 Pro now in Malaysia: Price starts from RM2,299

The pool of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 phones just got bigger today as Black Shark officially launched its new flagship device, the Black Shark 5 Pro in Malaysia. The company also released the non-Pro version of the device, although it runs on the Snapdragon 870 instead.

Another factor that separates these two gaming phones is their cameras. This is because the Pro model sports a 108MP main camera, unlike the 64MP main camera on the non-Pro variant of the Black Shark 5.

Moreover, Black Shark 5 Pro also comes with a 5MP telephoto camera with autofocus and macro while the non-Pro variant received a 2MP fixed focus macro camera. Both models feature the same ultra-smart 13MP camera alongside a 16MP selfie camera.


Speaking of similarities, these two new Black Shark 5 series devices have been outfitted with the same 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. As gaming phones, it’s no surprise to see that both devices’ screen also offers 144Hz refresh rate, 720Hz touch sampling rate and motion estimation feature, motion compensation (MEMC).
