As it turns out the phone is still alive and well and just got a date for its next sale - June 1, Friday. Black Shark Technology's CEO Wu Shimin, shared that that phone was facing production issues, and only now were they able to resolve them.

As a quick refresher on pricing, the 6GB/64GB variant of the Snapdragon 845-powered phone costs CNY2,999, which currently translates to $467, while the 8GB/128GB model will set you back CNY3,499, which is $545.
