Xiaomi put into circulation the Black Shark several months ago, its new brand, or subgame, for mobiles destined for gamers, mobiles to squeeze the games available in digital stores. The second generation now seems to be on the way to the market, and the tests come through the TENAA, the certifying entity that has let out not only the appearance of the phone but part of its specifications. And yes, it will waste power again.
Xiaomi Black Shark 2: Very similar to the original, but with a better basic model
TENAA says that the future Black Shark 2 will have a 5.99-inch screen with 18: 9 aspect, thus tracing the diagonal of the first generation of the device, which we met in April. On that occasion, we had a FullHD + resolution of 2,160 x 1,080, and everything indicates that the play will be repeated. What we do not know yet is whether it will be an LCD panel again or whether it will bet on the OLED. Of course, we will have color DCI-P3 and a range of colors of 97%.
For the brain, Xiaomi would have chosen again the Snapdragon 845, a decision that suggests that the launch will be close because the Snapdragon 855 must be presented at the end of the year and reach the market in the first weeks of 2019. For the memories, 8GB in RAM and 128GB in internal storage as a basic model, although we could have a larger memory in a second option.
It does not seem that it will be a very restrained telephone in size since the filtering from the TENAA puts an interesting figure of battery on the table. 4,000mAh, again a repetition concerning the previous model that, remember, had 162 millimeters of height and a thickness of 9.3 millimeters, in addition to 190 grams of weight. As seen in the data shown by the TENAA, the path of the second generation could be very even.
We also know that it will again have the liquid cooling exhibited by the original Black Shark and that it will have a fingerprint reader located on the back of the phone. On the price, there are already voices that talk about 2999 yuan which is about 370 euros.
