Black Shark 2 Pro has just gone on sale in China in two different variants with 12GB RAM + 128GB storage and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage configurations. However, a TENAA listing suggests that Black Shark is preparing some new variants of its gaming phone as well. The listing highlights the Black Shark 2 Pro with model number DLT-A0. To recall, the Black Shark 2 Pro was launched in China earlier this week as the upgrade to the Black Shark 2. The new handset comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC and includes DC Dimming 2.0 as well as Liquid Cooling 3.0+ technologies.
The TENAA listing shows that the Black Shark 2 Pro carrying model DLT-A0 has new 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. These are lower in capacity over the original 12GB RAM option.
Also, the listing on the TENAA site reveals that alongside 128GB and 256GB storage options, the Black Shark 2 Pro has a new 512GB storage version in the works.
The new Black Shark 2 Pro variants aren’t likely to be unveiled anytime soon as Black Shark has just started selling its two initial models in China. However, the addition of the new offerings could help the company attract more customers as specifically the 6GB and 8GB RAM variants are expected to be cheaper than the existing options. The new variants are also expected to arrive in markets such as India where the Black Shark 2 Pro is yet to be launched.
To recall, the Black Shark 2 Pro debuted in China with a starting price of CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 30,000) for the 12GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration. The 12GB RAM + 512GB storage option of the latest Black Shark phone, however, carries a price tag of CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs. 35,000).
