Xiaomi Backed Black Shark Gaming Smartphone’s Design Revealed in New Teaser.
Xiaomi, already in talks because of it’s recent launch of Redmi Note 5, Note 5 Pro and Mi Mix 2S. The company is now about to release a new gaming phone named “Black Shark“.
In a post on Weibo, Xiaomi has confirmed that the device will be launched with Snapdragon 845 SoC and will have something called a new ‘X Antenna Technology’. The smartphone is also thought to have been spotted on benchmarking sites in the recent past, tipping some other specifications.
Previously, an AnTuTu listing tipped the Xiaomi-backed Black Shark gaming smartphone will sport a full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 32GB of onboard storage. Similarly, a listing on Geekbench highlighted that the new handset will run Android 8.0 Oreo and include 8GB of RAM. There haven’t been many gaming-centric smartphones launched in the recent past. The Black Shark appears to be taking on Razer and the recently unveiled Razer Phone.
We can expect it to be cheaper, of course, continuing in the Xiaomi tradition of placing products at price points that undercut the market.
