Xiaomi‘s official distributor in the Philippines, Grimalkin Corporation, today announced the local pricing for the Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro gaming smartphones.

If you recall, we recently posted a brochure showing several new Xiaomi products, including the Black Shark 3 series and the still-unannounced Redmi 9A, which will be powered by the new MediaTek Helio G25 processor.

In the Philippines, the Black Shark 3 starts at P29,995 (around $600) for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, while the unit with 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage is priced at P34,995 ($700). The Black Shark 3 Pro, on the other hand, costs P44,990 ($900) and comes with 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. The phones will be available at official Mi Stores in the country beginning today, June 27.

Xiaomi’s latest line of gaming phones are equipped with large OLED screens with a fast 90Hz refresh rate and a claimed low latency of 24 milliseconds — one of the fastest, if the not the fastest, in the industry — as well as a 270Hz touch-sampling rate. The vanilla Black Shark 3 has a 6.67-inch display, while the screen on the Pro version is 7.1 inches diagonally. The latter gets a pair of mechanical shoulder buttons, too, to make the handset more gaming-friendly.

Both devices also use Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 865 chipset with an integrated 5G modem for super-fast data where available. The latest entries in the gaming-focused series have a triple-camera system on the back as well and a 20-megapixel camera for selfies.

In terms of battery capacity, the Black Shark 3 has a 4,720mAh battery backup under the hood and the Black Shark 3 Pro draws power from a 5,000mAh cell. Both support 65-watt fast charging over a USB-C port.

Like previous gaming phones in the Black Shark lineup, the Black Shark 3 models are launching with a bunch of first-party accessories, including a gaming controller and a cooler fan that attaches to the back of the devices to keep them cool during long gaming sessions.

Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro accessories. We still don’t know how much they’ll be in the Philippines, but in China, they’re priced at ¥179 (P1,304 or $26), ¥199 (P1,450 or $29), and ¥499 (P3,632 or $72), respectively
