The Black Shark 2 Pro phone was originally announced in July 2019, but made an appearance at CES. It will be available in the US in 2020 starting at $599. In pretty much every way the Black Shark 2 Pro is the exact same phone as the Black Shark 2. The major difference is that the new Pro version has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor instead of the regular 855 variant. The 855 Plus features 15% faster graphics and a CPU clock speed of up to 2.96GHz as opposed to the regular 2.84GHz of the 855. This means the Black Shark 2 Pro is at the top of the Android power food chain alongside the ROG phone 2, Red Magic 3S, OnePlus7T, Nubia 20 and Meizu 16s Pro.
