The Black Shark 3 was also teased to come with a new magnetic charging port which will let you charge the phone while gaming through a special connector that attaches to the back of the device. They will still feature regular Type-C port for fast charging, though.

Both versions of the Black Shark 3 will also come with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The duo was previously confirmed to sport 120Hz refresh rate screens, Snapdragon 865 chipsets and up to 16GB RAM. It’s still unclear what other advantages the Pro version will come with but we’ll surely see more teasers in the days leading up to the March 3 event.
