Xiaomi’s Black Shark: A Phone Built for Gaming!

PCs are old school now. Let’s game on this beast!

The very unexpected gaming phone, Black Shark has gone official with a beautiful design at somewhat affordable price.

Black Shark is powered by the latest Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor with 6 gigs of RAM and 64 gigs or 8 gigs of RAM and 128GB of internal storage (no expansion slot). I personally think that an expansion slot would have made this beast a complete package for gamersBlack Shark includes a new type of multi-stage integrated liquid cooling system that can help CPU to bring down its temperature up to 8° C.


That display of Black Shark is a Full HD+ 18:9 LCD panel with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. There is still no news of 120 Hz refresh rate as found on the Razer Phone.


On the back side is a dual camera setup one of which is a 12MP and other one is 20MP both with an f/1.75 aperture and dual-LED flash. The 12MP one has 1.25 micron sized pixels while the 20MP one has 1 micron sized pixels.

The front camera is a 20MP shooter with an f/2.2 aperture and can shoot good selfies under good lighting conditions.

The phone is currently available for pre-order on JD.com. The 6GB/64GB variant is available for CNY 2,999 while the 8GB/128GB costs CNY 3,499.
