Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has been making rounds over the internet for a few days now, but a new poster suggests that Xiaomi could be launching the Black Shark 2 on 23rd October.
This is Xiaomi's latest gaming smartphone and an upgrade to the previous Black Shark that was launched in China only. The Black Shark 2 was also spotted on GeekBench recently, which made it credible that the phone could be coming soon. It was listed with model number AWM-A0 and its single-core score was 2403, while its multi-core score is listed to be at 8389. The phone is said to be powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC with 8GB RAM, with Android 8.1 Oreo.
Xiaomi launched the Black Shark gaming smartphone earlier this year to take on rivals like the Razer Phone. The phone was launched in China only, and details on international availability were scarce up until this month. Recently, the global website for the Xiaomi Shark variants went live indicating of an imminent launch. Now, Black Shark 2 has been spotted on GeekBench as well. Separately, a sketchy leaked poster also tips the launch date of the new Black Shark phone.
The phone recently went through TENAA listing that suggests the upcoming Black Shark 2 would sport a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with Adreno 630 GPU, 8GB RAM and 4,000mAh battery. Reports suggest that the smartphone could come with a dedicated liquid cooling technology that would offer an out-of-the-box thermal management for an enhanced gaming experience. So, far there is nothing on the pricing available, but to recall the first Black Shark was launched at a starting price of CNY 2,999 (Rs. 31,100 approx.).
