Xiaomi confirms April 13 as release date for gaming phone in invite
Today, a launch invitation confirms that Black Shark will be launching a new gamer-centric smartphone to compete against the likes of the Razer phone. This invite mentions April 13 as the date that the company will announce such a device in Beijing, China.
The company is actually backed by Xiaomi, so the device will likely feature the Black Shark branding and not Xiaomi’s. It will definitely be easier to spell and pronounce than “Xiaomi” in western markets.
Qualcomm’s logo is also on the invite so we will likely see a Snapdragon 845 inside this device. Other expected specs include between 6GB and 8GB RAM and between 64GB and 256GB of storage. We are also expecting a 120Hz display for a smooth gaming experience.
If anyone is waiting to purchase a Razer phone, you may want to wait until more about the Black Shark phone is revealed. We can pretty much guarantee it will be cheaper than the Razer Phone as Xiaomi is usually aggressive with pricing its products.
Thanks for sending this tip!
