The Black Shark 5 duo packs a 6.67-inch Full HD+ OLED screen that offers a 144Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sampling rate, ensuring that the screen processes touch responses at a much faster speed, especially while gaming. The peak brightness is touted to be 1,300 nits, which is higher than the 1,200 nits max brightness (HDR) figure listed for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Plus, there is no ugly notch to spoil those sharp looks, either.
Both the phones have been fitted with a 4,650mAh battery that supports 120W fast charging and is said to fill the tank in just 15 minutes. However, if you’re concerned about the negative impact of such a charging pace on the battery health, there’s an option to slow things down and juice up the battery in about 25 minutes. Thankfully, the 120W charging brick is included in the retail package.
The standout add-ons are the gaming triggers that are locked in place using sliders on each side that pop up magnetically. These pressure-sensitive shoulder buttons are said to use gaming-grade microswitches and they can be customized for other tasks like taking screenshots. The triple camera system on the Black Shark 5 (64MP primary + 13MP ultrawide + 2MP macro) and Black Shark 5 Pro (108MP main + 13MP wide + 5MP macro) is also capable of tricks like Super Nightscape, 4K capture at 60fps, and super slo-mo 1080p video recording at 960fps.
