BlackShark Gaming Smartphone is a much anticipated device from one of Xiaomi’s funded companies. Xiaomi has teased that the phone will launch on April 13. Launch event will be held somewhere in China and the event will begin by 3 pm. Device is expected to come with a Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Blackshark smartphone surfaced a few weeks back on AnTuTu with an impressive score of 270680 points, placing it in the same range as the upcoming Nubia NX606J. AnTuTu revealed it will come with Snapdragon 845 processor that’s 8GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
A Weibo user has shared promo photos of the smartphone. BlackShark Gaming Smartphone image shows that the device is black color with a acid green. The green color found underneath the joysticks and on the trigger buttons. A LED beside the power button also has the same color.
The screen is wide enough for gaming and is flanked on the left by a D-pad, a joystick, and a smaller button we can’t make out its function. On the left are action buttons with the familiar triangle, square, circle, and X icons, another joystick and two unknown buttons. The top of the Black Shark Gaming Smartphone is home to two shoulder buttons, volume control buttons, and a power button. At the bottom is a charging port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
