Black Shark 4 and 4 Pro expected specifications
As per the Google Play Console listing, the alleged Black Shark 4 gaming phone is expected to come with 12GB of RAM and Android 10 OS. The image of the smartphone was found in the listing and that it could sport a punch-hole display with a cutout for the selfie camera on the top-center.

We do not know the size of the screen although going by trends we believe that it will be a 6.5-inch to 6.7-inch display with FHD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio.
What is bit unusual is that the listing shows the Black Shark (PSR-A0) smartphone is seen running on a Snapdragon 865 processor, the same processor that powered last year’s Black Shark 3. The “kaiser” smartphone is seen running on an older Snapdragon 835 processor.
It seems that the names and generation of the Snapdragon processor have been incorrectly mentioned as the flagship gaming smartphones are expected to come loaded with the latest Snapdragon 888 processor.
What about the design?
In terms of the expected design, the Black Shark series is expected to come with rounded edges and a flat display. It will feature the volume rockers to the left side while the phone could house dedicated gaming button on the right side of the phone, possibly gaming triggers.
The PSR-A0 model (Black Shark 4 Pro) is yet to appear in the database of China’s TENAA certification. However, the KSR-A0 variant was spotted this month certified by TENAA and comes with a 6.67-inch display, a 4,500mAh battery and Android 11 OS.
The Black Shark 4 series is also expected to come bundled with 120W fast charge technology.
