Xiaomi launches new gaming smartphone: price, specifications and more

Xiaomi Black Shark

Xiaomi Black Shark

This is a gaming smartphone that comes not too long after Xiaomi partnered with Black Shark Technology, a gaming company in the natives of China. There's an 18:9 5.99-inch LCD display that renders images at full HD+ resolution. The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, although it's not yet known whether it's utilising Xiaomi's MIUI OS or a different custom OS based on Android Oreo. Because you need as much power as you can get to enjoy gaming, Xiaomi embedded a non-removable 4,000mAh Lithium-Ion battery with USB-C Quick Charge 3.0 for faster charging.

The smartphone will also have a multi-stage direct-touch integrated liquid cooling system to prevent the handset from overheating. It also supports DCI-P3 color gamut that covers up to 97 percent with brightness up to 550 nits. The device has a dual-rear camera setup with a 20MP sensor and a 12MP sensor, both with f/1.75 aperture and LED flash. Further, it has a front camera with 20MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and is capable of taking 4K videos. The phone measures 161.62×75.4×9.25mm and weighs 190 grams. It also has sensors onboard that are Gyroscope, Proximity Sensor, Ambient Light Sensor, and Geomagnetic, Gravity Sensor.

The device has a dedicated Shark Key to access a dedicated gaming mode. The fingerprint scanner and home button at the bottom of the screen can also be turned off during gaming. The company is also touting the presence of an X-type antenna, ensuring connectivity whether held in landscape or portrait and avoiding the "grip of death".

The handset comes with a Bluetooth controller called the Shark GamePad, which is sold separately for 179 Yuan. The Gamepad works with Android 4.4 or later devices and uses Bluetooth 4.0.

If you are into Gaming phones - that's to say if such a category really exists - then you might want to look at the Xiaomi-backed offering, the Black Shark phone.

The Black Shark itself is priced at CNY 2999 (approx Rs 31160) for the 6GB/64GB option and CNY 3499 (about Rs 36360) for the 8GB/128GB one. Currently, the smartphone is available in China and there is no information on whether it will be released globally.
