Xiaomi Black Shark release date in India: Unknown

Xiaomi has been in the smartphone business for less than a decade and they can be easily called as the most innovative smartphone provider. Not because of their smart IoT products, but because of their passion for introducing versatility in their smartphone line-up. Technically, the new phone isn’t Mi or Redmi but is an all new separate series (maybe) dedicated to smartphone gamers. So, if you’re looking for an alternative to Razer Phone. Then, you might have got one. Let’s explore the Xiaomi Black Shark specifications.

Design & Display

Sporting an elusive design, the new Xiaomi phone wears a comfortable back, which is specially made considering the hours gamers will spend on this one. And of course, Xiaomi has taken care of the screen as well. The meaning is that they have introduced a 5.99-inches 18:9 aspect ratio display for the best viewing experience. Unfortunately, there is no special feature introduced to make the viewing experience better than other flagship phones.

Performance

This is where it shines bright! Xiaomi has introduced the most powerful chipset available in the market on their new gaming smartphone. To control temperature, the brand has introduced a first of its kind liquid cooling system, which is integrated with the chipset and claims to bring the CPU down to 8 degrees during intense gaming sessions.

Further, Xiaomi has made sure that the device shouldn’t suffer in multitasking, which is why there are two variants; 6GB RAM/32GB storage and 8GB RAM/128GB storage. It’s worth noting that the image processing chip on this one is new by MEMC, which claims to bring the sharper colours and overall smooth performance whenever required.

Camera  

Despite, it being a gaming phone, Xiaomi just can’t let go of its ability to offer kickass camera package. Which is why it has a dual 12MP + 20 MP camera setup, where one is a regular RGB lens, and other is a telephoto lens with optical zoom capability. Further, the company claims to introduce a dual pixel phase detection autofocus technology, which might offer better focusing. The selfie snapper on this one comes with a 20MP resolution and wide-angle lens.

Battery

With a 4000 mAh capacity battery, the company offers pretty much a good battery life. Considering you’d be buying this phone for gaming, you cannot expect it to run all day on full charge. But of course, it will surely offer enough juice to keep your gaming session last as long as possible.

Verdict

Whether you’re a gamer or not, this handset is a pure bliss for the powerful smartphone experience. It is the primary reason you should be looking to purchase this handset. Talking about competition, Razer Phone comes closest to the Xiaomi Black Shark specifications. But it might not be as comfortable to hold and there is no liquid cooling system on the Razer phone. So, there you go, you know the answer to best gaming smartphone in the premium segment. Considering the expected Xiaomi Black Shark price in India, it might be a great alternative to OnePlus 5T and even Nokia 8.
