Black Shark 4s Features

A user from Twitter has shown the phones read and write speeds the phones will have. Viewing these speeds, they are shown to be possibly the fastest of any phone out there currently.
These speeds reach up to 3Gb in reading and 1Gb in writing, making these great for taking high-resolution videos and gaming.
