Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Shown In Hands-On video
The alleged Xiaomi Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone has been leaked in a hands-on video. The video does not reveal much about the device but it does show the glowing RGB logo on the back and RGB-illuminated side strips. The glowing logo and side-strips look really good and have us excited about the upcoming device. The front of the device was not visible. However, we don’t expect many design changes as a leaked TENAA listing had shown that the device is very similar to the previous Black Shark.
The leaks are on legitimate grounds as a Black Shark landing page recently popped up. This page does not reveal much except for the words ‘Sharks Approaching’. Looking closer, this gives us another clue. ‘Sharks’ hints at more than one device. This means along with the new smartphone, the Black Shark will see its Global launch. Earlier, the device was only available in China and in limited quantities.
The TENAA listing also reveals a similar design and almost identical specifications. However, the major specifications are not known yet. It is highly likely that this is a cheaper version of the Black Shark and not a true-blooded successor. The cheaper version expand the audience and also give access to those who wanted the gaming smartphone but fell short in terms of money.
The leak suggests that the new Black Shark 2 features a 5.99 inch display and a 4,000 mAh battery. This is exactly the same when compared to the previous device. However, we will have to wait till the launch to know the entire specifications of the device. The move to make the Black Shark available globally, if it is happening might have been a little delayed on Xiaomi’s part. With the ROG Gaming Phone and the Razer Phone 2 already out, the competition in the gaming smartphone segment is thicker than ever.
