Xiaomi-backed Black Shark is soon expected to launch a new gaming phone. It is likely to pack Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC and a big display with a high refresh rate. The Black Shark 3 5G device will arrive with better battery capacity and charging rates, as per the company’s latest poll. The brand manager has posted a poll on Weibo. He is asking users which combination with charging rates, battery capacity and discharging rates is the best for gaming devices.

The manager has given four combinations, of which 65W + 5000mAh is the correct one. The post hints that the Black Shark 3 will support 65W fast charge. The Black Shark 3 5G will have a 5,000mAh battery that will go 0-100 percent in 38 minutes. GSMArena reports that all the other three combos are of existing phones. The Huawei Mate X comes with a 55W fast charge and 4,500mAh power cell, whereas the Oppo Reno Ace has 4,000mAh battery + 65W charge.
