Check out the first screenshot from the BlackShark 2

Yordan, 11 March 2019

Xiaomi is announcing the Black Shark 2 next Monday and we know plenty of stuff about the phone thanks to benchmarks and teasers.

There was also a leaked hands-on photo, revealing dual cameras in the upper left corner on the back. But now we got a sneak peek into the UI, thanks to Xiaomi co-founder Lin Bin.

The screenshot was posted on Weibo by the executive. Although the image does not reveal the actual resolution of the Black Shark 2 screen, at least we can see the ratio will be 19.5:9, which is in line with the AnTuTu listing from last Friday. The user interface seems the typical over-engineered stuff with flashy colors, in line with the Black Shark design language.

While the original Black Shark is available in Europe, its Helo successor is still China-only. Earlier this month the company opened an office in Bengaluru, India, where official debut is expected to be announced later this year.

I wasn't aware of that hidden feature, thanks for letting me know:) Would you recommend buying an Xs Max for gaming/photo or a Mate 20 Pro?

The XS Max is better and actually also has a gaming mode too with DND. I wish Apple would capitalise more on this advantage, and press it further with Appl...

They also lack IP68 protection. And it wouldn't hurt if both had a 3.5mm headphone jack, and used a dedicated QuadDAC.
