While the Black Shark 2 Pro isn’t officially for sale in the Philippines yet, folks in the company are quickly setting up the necessary facilities for their official entry to the Philippines. Black Shark reps tell me that they’ll be offering the Black Shark 2 Pro close to the price that they’re offering the phone in Malaysia, which comes out to around Php 31K when directly converted to our currency for the 8GB/128GB variant, with the higher-spec 12GB/256GB variant going for around 37.1K when directly converted.
