The Black Shark 2 comes in Black, Ice Silver, and Blue color options. Further, Black Shark has provided stereo audio along with artificial intelligence (AI)-based noise reduction and anti-howling sound experience.
Black Shark also seems to have skipped the trend of curved sides, which should allow gamers to focus on the gaming aspect instead of the design. Also, there is a 240Hz touch response rate that comes along with a touch algorithm optimisation specifically for games. There is also 8GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant at CNY 3,799 (roughly Rs. 38,800) and the top-end model with 12GB RAM/ 256GB storage at CNY 4,199 (roughly Rs. 42,900).
As for specifications, the Black Shark 2 is expected to come with a Snapdragon 855 SoC, becoming one of the few smartphones to feature the Qualcomm chip this year. The device is backed by a 4,000mAh non-removable battery and supports up to 27W fast charging. Both prices are deeply impressive for a phone of such calibre, but the catch is that the Black Shark 2 is now only available in China.
Xiaomi claim they've developed a new liquid cooling system that "covers all heat-generating areas" in order to lower temperatures by as much as 14 degrees Celsius (57.2 degrees Fahrenheit), meaning you don't have to worry about the Black Shark 2 overheating. The phone also comes with an X-shaped antenna design layout as well as dual-frequency Global Positioning System. There's a 48MP main camera f/1.75 aperture, LED flash and a 12MP secondary sensor with telephoto lens and f/2.2 aperture. The handset is also confirmed to come with a 48-megapixel rear camera, as per latest samples released by the official channel.
Plus, its 6.39-inch OLED screen has a Samsung-made in-display fingerprint sensor. In terms of connectivity, the device offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and USB Type-C.
