The Xiaomi Black Shark Gaming phone has been officially revealed and with detailed specifications. This phone has some incredible specs that will make it a very powerful device for gaming and power users. The device is available for pre-order set to begin shipping on April 20th, which is just a few days away — and is available in two colors.
The specifications are extremely enticing. The CPU is a Snapdragon 845 @2.8GHz clock speed, with Adreno 630 GPU. Two configurations for RAM, either 6GB or 8GB; in both cases, it is LPDDR4X so you're looking at insanely speedy memory. Storage options are limited to two configurations as well, 64GB or 128GB. The display is a whopping 5.99 inch 2160x1080 IPS display @ 60Hz refresh rate. And lastly, the battery is a massive 4,000 mAh battery that supports QuickCharge 3.0. The hardware integrated into this device is fairly future proof, providing users with heavy mobile power that is certain to last several generations.
What is a mobile phone without a camera? In the case of the Xiaomi Black Shark, there's no need to worry — it packs a dual-camera that has both a 12-megapixel and a 20-megapixel lens. The front camera is also 20-megapixels, which is much higher quality than most front-facing cameras on mobile devices today. On top of this crisp camera setup, the device also boasts internal liquid cooling, which will facilitate it's intended purpose: high performance.
The first 50,000 customers to order the Xiaomi Black Shark gaming phone will receive the official gamepad accessory for free. It uses Bluetooth to interface with the phone, and includes a rechargeable battery with a 340mAh capacity. The phone can be ordered from JD.com during the pre-order phase, but after it will be available from other sellers as well. The 64GB storage with 6GB RAM configuration costs about $477 USD, with the 128GB storage and 8GB RAM model running closer to $557 USD.
