Black Shark Technologies, a newly formed smartphone manufacturing company, funded by Xiaomi, is soon going to launch a gaming smartphone. Now, the phone’s specifications have been leaked online, which is in line with the previous leak.
The smartphone will be available in three memory configurations — 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage, 8GB RAM with 128GB onboard storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage. The company has already confirmed that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 processor, which powers most of the flagship smartphones launched this year so far.
Further, the report suggests that the phone will also support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. Specifications-wise, the smartphone seems very much similar to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S launched earlier this week. On the back of the phone, the company’s Black Shark branding will be there.
The device is expected to be running on Android 8.0 (Oreo) operating system out-of-the-box. While there is no more information available at this time regarding the phone’s display, the phone might come with a 120Hz display in order to compete with the Razer Phone that was released last year.
As of the phone’s launch, the phone is expected to get launched ahead of Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship smartphone — Mi 7. The phone, which will go on sale in the first half of this year, could get launched next month.
Last week, the company had revealed that the phone will come with “Shark Space” — a feature that is similar to the Game Center feature. Recently, Black Shark’s chief executive officer announced a lucky draw contest in which the company will select 3 lucky winners on 30th March who will then receive Black Shark gaming smartphone.
The company recently signed a cooperation agreement with JD.com for sales and promotions. Apart from Black Shark, ASUS and ZTE’s Nubia is also expected to launch a gaming smartphone.
