The Black Shark Gaming Smartphone is a hotly anticipated device from one of Xiaomi’s funded companies. Earlier today, it was revealed that the phone will launch on April 13. That’s still 10 days away but you don’t have to wait that long to get a look at the device.
A user on Weibo has shared alleged promo photos of the Black Shark Phone. Combine the photos with some of the already leaked specs and there are only a few missing details including the price of the device.
The Black Shark Gaming Smartphone is black with a touch of acid green. The green color gives off a Razer vibe and can be found underneath the joysticks and on the trigger buttons. A LED beside the power button also has the same color.
The screen is wide enough for gaming and is flanked on the left by a D-pad, a joystick, and a smaller button we can’t make out its function. On the left are action buttons with the familiar triangle, square, circle, and X icons, another joystick and two unknown buttons.
The top of the Black Shark Gaming Smartphone is home to two shoulder buttons, volume control buttons, and a power button. At the bottom is a charging port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The phone has been confirmed to come with a Snapdragon 845 processor. It is reported to come in three variants – 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB. Other features leaked include support for Quick Charge 3.0, a 120Hz display, and Android 8.0 Oreo on board.
Do note that these photos are unconfirmed and may be fake, so take with a grain of salt.
Fact: Razer has a gaming headset called BlackShark.
