As for specifications, the Black Shark 3S should see identical specifications as the Black Shark 3, except for slight tweaks in refresh rate and may be the processor. It is teased to feature the same 6.67-inch AMOLED display as the Black Shark 3. The refresh rate on the Black Shark 3S is amped up to 120Hz from the 90Hz refresh rate found on the Black Shark 3. We speculate that the Black Shark 3S may be powered by the Snapdragon 865+ SoC, instead of the Snapdragon 865 SoC integrated on the current Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro.
