When someone charging its phone overnight can do so with earphones.

Bluetooth is a shared medium, and depending on the traffic the connection can break down. Cable is exclusive and works 100% of the time, and the earphone does not need a battery which is another advantage. I do not understand why there are mobiles without a jack, would never ever buy such a phone.

LOL the term "gaming phone" is a misnomer, no such thing. Any flagship phone can play any shitty watered-down mobile game. If you really care about gaming or aren't a little kid then get a real gaming device like a video game console or PC with dedicated graphics.

Jack is not essential.
Knowing the fact using a sound when gaming drains battery faster.

Not worthy of such a name.
It will be just another slightly specced up device. The note will probably again be a technically better over device and gaming phone.

Hey Xiaomi, here's some helpful advice:
- bundle EVERY BlackShark2 with both the Left and Right joycon controllers from the BlackShark Helo. It's a "Gaming Phone" afterall.
- Don't cheap out too much on the BlackShark2, leave those budget cuts for the PocoPhone 2.
- Don't go overboard on the UFS storage, camera, and IP68. Leave those expensive improvements for the Xiaomi Mi 9.

If you don't do these three basic things, you run the risk of diluting your product portfolio, and subsequently your image. And introducing another cheap ("flagship killer") Redmi Phone with the QSD 855 SoC does not help matters.
