Talking about specifications, the AnTuTu listing reveals that the BlackShark gaming smartphone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system and will feature a Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with Adreno 630 GPU.
