Xiaomi May Soon Launch Another Black Shark Gaming Smartphone
Gaming smartphones are all the rage in an oversaturated mobile industry. These devices are powerful and bring refreshed aesthetics to the mix. The last couple of months have seen the addition of many great gaming mobiles in India such as the Nubia 3 Red Magic. Xiaomi had unveiled its own take with the Black Shark 2, which is now reported to be getting another iteration soon.
A new Black Shark version with the model number DLT-A0 has been spotted on the Chinese communications agency, 3C. Not only does the listing confirm the existence of an unreleased Black Shark smartphone, but it also reveals its battery charging details. The upcoming gaming smartphone will support 27 watts fast charging, similar to the Xiaomi Mi 9 and Black Shark 2.
Internal specifications and designs of the smartphone are yet to be revealed by the company, however, speculations can be made via past iterations. Historically, Black Shark smartphones are top-end devices that feature the latest and most powerful chipsets in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series. The Black Shark 2 featured the Snapdragon 855 SoC, so the upcoming device should also be equipped with the same with a generous offering of RAM and ROM (12GB + 256GB on Black Shark 2).
Gaming smartphones bring unique designs to the table and Xiaomi’s Black Shark does so as well. Metallic and angular elements will most definitely make a return with black hues and green LED strips that will accentuate the entire design philosophy. The new device is rumoured to feature a triple camera set up at the back while the front will either have a water-drop or wide notch. Unfortunately, the exact details of the camera sensors are unknown. The company has stated that it will bring back the 3.5mm headphone jack to its upcoming smartphones. The aforementioned feature was skipped on the previous iteration and received heavy criticism.
It is unclear whether the new Black Shark smartphone will be the 3rd entry to the series or an upgraded refresh to the current gen Black Shark 2. Like in the case of the Black Shark Helo, which was released half a year after the original Black Shark. Xiaomi has quite successfully penetrated the Indian market in various categories of handsets and is seeking to expand its horizons even further. The upcoming entry will be a welcomed addition to the gaming smartphone family which was already received a warm welcome by its audience. More information regarding the new device should be available in the arriving weeks.
