Razer Phone is currently the only gaming-oriented smartphone in the market, but soon it could get competition from Xiaomi. The Chinese manufacturer works in partnership with the Black Shark Technology gaming maker at a "Black Shark Phone" that will provide top hardware and special gaming features. Fortunately, we will not have to wait a lot to find out more about the phone, since its launch is very close
Black Shark is to be unveiled next week on April 13 at an event to be held in China. In fact, the phone would be launched exclusively in this region, and its availability could be very limited compared to other Xiaomi phone models. The reason could be the display, which will be the first in the market to rival Razer Phone
Xiaomi's first Black Shark information suggests that it will integrate Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset, a superior 835 model on the Razer Phone, with a display that can display 120Hz images and 6GB RAM configurations and 128 GB of storage or 8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of storage. The previous days appeared on Weibo and a photo with the device (above), which seems to be integrated into a physical button pouch, like a PlayStation controller, two analog sticks and a D-Pad.
It's unclear whether the gaming accessory will be included in the package or whether it will be sold separately and we do not know how much it costs or the Black Shark. It is certain that the gaming smartphone market is beginning to contrive, and the timing seems appropriate given that mobile versions of top PC games have been released in the past few months
