Back in October the Chinese giant Xiaomi's sub-brand Black Shark announced their second gaming phone Helo. It was the company's first flagship phone with 10GB RAM on board. As expected initially the device is available for Chinese buyers, the company didn't confirm when it will be available globally.
From the look of the things, the company is now getting ready to release their first 10GB RAM phone for the global market. The company sent out an email to Black Shark fans to confirm the brand will go global on November 9th and the chances are high the company will announce Black Shark helo for global customers.
The Black Shark global website is already live with two taglines of “Sharks Approaching” and “Unleashing Soon.” This confirms the launch of the first Shark phone for the international market is around the corner. The emails stated the company will unleash something big on the aforementioned date.
Just for the sake of reminder, the Shark Helo sports a 6.01-inches display with Full HD+ screen resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. The display aspect ratio is 2:1. Under the hood, the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset is powering the device. The primary rear snapper is 12MP whereas the secondary sensor is 20MP. A 4,000mAH battery is on board to keep its lights on as it comes with 18W fast charging.
The base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage cost $462, the standard model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is available at $505 and the top-tier model comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage can be purchased at $607. However, we can expect it will be available at slightly higher pricing for the global market.
