Judging from its specs, the Black Shark Helo seems to be a minor update from the already existing Black Shark, as there are no other notable differences aside from the larger memory and storage capacity. It also has a slightly larger AMOLED display, which is a better fit for gaming than the Black Shark’s LCD touchscreen, as it significantly reduces eyestrain.
The Black Shark Helo will be available in three storage variants: 6GB RAM + 128GB storage version will retail for ¥ 3,199 yuan (Php 24,700), 8GB RAM + 128GB storage version will cost ¥ 3,499 (Php 27,000), and the 10GB RAM + 256GB storage version costs ¥ 4,199 (Php 32,500).
