Xiaomi’s Gaming Phone, Black Shark now official! Comes with Water Cooling & SD845

Xiaomi had revealed a few weeks ago that they’re planning to launch a gaming phone under the Black Shark sub brand.The Blackshark gaming phone has been trending for quite a while now. After all the leaks and speculations we saw, the

Take a look at the beauty of the Black Shark first:

Ah yes, it comes with lots of green, making it similar to something Razor has built (not like their Razor phone though, but their gaming accessories).

Let’s talk first about the stuff that’s powering the device, it’s the Snapdragon 845 SoC, just as we anticipated. It comes with two RAM variants, 6GB RAM & 8GB RAM. The 6GB RAM variant comes with 64GB internal storage & the other one with 128GB. The phone also comes with a dedicated Pixelworks’ Display Processing Tech, which boosts the display & video prowess of the phone.

But that’s not what makes the phone special, it is the presence of attachable analog stick controller on the side of the phone. With the rising popularity of games like PUBG mobile & Fortnite in mobile, this might just work in favour of the phone.

Next is the inclusion of multi-stage integrated liquid cooling system in the phone, which brings down the temperature of the phone by 8° C as the company claims.

Now, talking about the display, the phone comes with a 5.99 inch Full HD display, but there is no 120Hz support as some of us though it might be coming with as the Razor phone came with it. That’s a disappointment, as this phone is touted to be a gaming phone, that too an ultimate gaming phone.

It also comes with dual camera on the back, which is a 20+12MP setup with f/1.75 aperture for the primary lens and 1.25µm and the other with 1µm. There’s a 20MP f/2.2 aperture camera on the front.

Now, here’s a surprising feature in the phone, which is kind of an extinct feature nowadays. The inclusion of a 4000mAh removable battery! Yes, something only 90’s kids remember (LOL). It also supports Quick Charging 3.0.

The phone is up for pre-order on JD.com from April 20th, and it priced very aggressively. The 6/64GB variant is priced at CNY2,999 (almost 31K INR) and the 8/128GB variant is priced at CNY3,499 (almost 36K INR).
