Xiaomi backed Black Shark might be launching its third gaming smartphone called Black Shark 2 by the end of April. The smartphone today appeared at benchmarking site GeekBench where some key specifications of the device are revealed. The smartphone is also rumoured to be codenamed ‘Black Shark Skywalker’ after a device with this name appeared in the GeekBench online database.
The Black Shark 2 appeared on GeekBench benchmark’s database as “blackshark AAA”. It will be powered by the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 paired with 12GB RAM. It is listed to run Android 9 Pie. The device scored 3,515 and 11,413 points in the single and multi-core tests respectively. It is slightly better than the 8GB RAM variant scores which are 3,494 and 11,149 for single core and multi cores test respectively.
The company is yet to officially announce the launch date but confirmed that it will come with a Liquid Cool 3.0 which will help keep the temperature in check while running graphics intensive games. Xiaomi shared this information in the first teaser for its upcoming smartphone. The teaser comes in the form of a 9 second video posted by Black Shark founder Peter Wu and was shared in the company’s Weibo account.
The smartphone is also expected to make its way to the Indian market. The company recently announced its official presence in the country with the office located in Bengaluru. It is not sure if the company will bring its previous Black Shark and Black Shark Helo smartphone that is currently available only in China and Europe.
The Black Shark 2 was expected to be unveiled at the MWC 2019 event after Xiaomi Product Director Wang Teng Thomas put a Weibo post claiming he has seen the device and calling it “full of personality, very cool”. The post was followed by Xiaomi founder Lei Jun which seemed like a part of a publicity campaign to generate buzz before the launch.
