We all know that last year was all about gaming smartphones from Android OEMs. We saw various gaming smartphones launched by different smartphone manufacturers in 2018. This included the likes of Asus, Razer and Xiaomi apart from many others. Now, Xiaomi’s gaming smartphone was launched under the Black Shark brand which is its sub-brand. This smartphone was named as the Xiaomi Black Shark gaming smartphone. We are now expecting the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 to be released soon.
Just last month, we heard about a device being developed by Xiaomi’s Black Shark. This device was reported to be codenamed as ‘Black Shark Skywalker’. It is most likely that the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 will indeed be the ‘Black Shark Skywalker’.
According to a post made by the official account on Weibo, Xiaomi’s product director Wang Teng Thomas has seen the upcoming Black Shark 2(obviously). He states that the new gaming smartphone from Black Shark is going to be ‘full of personality, very cool and too fast’.
Coming to the specifications expected from the Black Shark 2, it should be a powerhouse. We should expect the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 to be powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC. Also, we will see a 120Hz display on the Xiaomi Black Shark 2. This is same as the display on the Black Shark.
However, we might see an even higher refresh rate this year as well. On the other hand, we will have 8GB of RAM on the Black Shark 2 from Xiaomi. This is in order to power the device for those long gaming sessions.
The base storage on this device is expected to remain at 128GB which is plenty. The device should come with a 6-inch display and there is a possibility of a huge battery on this device. However, the reports suggest that it will have a 4000 mAh battery. This device will run the latest version of Android which is Android 9.0 Pie.
