It isn’t on its way to replacing a Nintendo Switch yet, but the Xiaomi Tencent Black Shark 3 could just be the best Android gaming device on the market yet. With a glorious 7.1 inch screen that’s more than big enough to immerse you in a game of Fortnite or Minecraft, the Black Shark 3 actually lets you tweak pressure sensitivity on the left and right-hand corners to better your in-game experience. The phone comes with 5G support and has two heat-sink pipes for faster cooling while you play away. To elevate your gameplay experience, the Black Shark 3 comes with left and right shoulder buttons that give you greater tactile control, along with an 18W magnetic fast-charging port on the back of the phone (on the opposite side of the camera bump) to allow charging while gaming.
The Black Shark 3 is, its gaming features aside, a pretty good daily-driver smartphone too. The phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, a display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, a triple camera layout on the back, and get this… a 3.5mm headphone jack for gaming headsets.
Next step, support for Google Stadia??
