First live image of Xiaomi's Blackshark gaming phone surfaces

Yordan, 09 April 2018

Two months ago a mysterious phone dubbed Blackshark appeared on AnTuTu with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, tall screen and 8 GB RAM. Later specs got confirmed on Geekbench, followed by an invitation for a launch event on April 13.

Thanks to a new leak, coming from the Chinese social media Weibo, we now know a bit more about the phone's design. The phone flaunts dual cameras, paired with an LED flash and a rather overdesigned back. In fact the photo seems to show the phone in some sort of huge case, which could feature some game controls at the front.

Blackshark is a Xiaomi-owned company, but the manufacturer’s logo can’t be found anywhere. There is only one big green letter S on the back, giving us Razer Phone vibes.

According to the source, the Blackshark is coming with an OLED screen and under-display fingerprint scanner.

There are still plenty of unknowns on the Blackshark, but not a lot of waiting remaining until the official launch fills in the gaps.
