The Black Shark 4 will come with flagship-grade features such as a 6.67-inch display, a 144Hz refresh rate, and 120W fast charging, among others. The handset is good enough to rival the mighty Asus ROG Phone 5 and iQOO 7, which have been the other two big-name gaming smartphones launched this year.
