Xiaomi’s Black Shark gaming smartphone is all set to launch next week in China on 18th March. The Chinese smartphone maker has launched two phones in the series including the Black Shark and Black Shark Helo.
The battery is a critical issue for gaming smartphones and according to reports, Xiaomi is working out a new solution for the upcoming smartphone. Black Shark CEO Peter has stated on Weibo that the upcoming phone will come with an e-sports grade battery. He stated that this will increase the charging and discharging performance by 60% for the smartphone, thanks to the optimized battery chemical system. The company has tweaked the charge and discharge algorithm. The phone will come with Liquid Cooling 3.0 technology.
The phone was spotted on AnTuTu under the model name, BlackShark Skywalker, and is reportedly powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 octa-core chipset. It packs 8GB of RAM + 128GB memory configuration, and reports suggest that there will be higher-end model with 12GB of RAM on board as well. A Geekbench listing has confirmed that the phone will come with a display having 2340 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. It has scored 359,973 on AnTuTu which is not very high for the new Snapdragon 855 chipset. It has also passed through 3C certification which reveals that the phone will come with 27W fast charging which is the same as the Xiaomi Mi 9. A recently leaked hands-on image of the phone shows the new camera arrangement of the phone including vertically aligned dual rear cameras.
