Black Shark 2 - Second Time Lucky

August 12 2019: When a bunch of engineers, developers, sporting enthusiasts and designers come together to create a new devices brand, it's no surprise that they understand the core ethos of gamers and understand their never-ending hunger for power and performance. Black Shark stamped its authority on the Indian gamer with its Black Shark 2 smart phone. By providing sophisticated yet sensible features like an X-type Smart Antenna supported by two side antennas, the device provides consistent connectivity across 360 degrees irrespective of device orientation. With its 6.39 inches TrueView Display with HDR, powered by the Snapdragon 855 flagship chipset, the Black Shark 2 churns out realistic, natural and accurate colours. The device features the third generation of liquid cooling technology, an in-display fingerprint scanner,  18W fast charge and a camera configuration of 48 MP + 12 MP on the back along with a 20 MP selfie clicker.

Black Shark 2 is  design-intense with its illuminated logo and LED strips on the sides that change colour at will. The contoured back, with a V-shaped lift makes it stand out. To round things off, there is an exclusive button to enter Shark Space, which lets you toggle between performance modes, invoke more compute power and even adjust touch sensitivity. Available in 6 GB +128 GB, and  12 GB + 256 GB variants, the Black Shark 2 is a good buy currently at Rs. 34,999 and Rs. 44,999 respectively.  VISHNU ANAND
