Vlad, 09 November 2018

Xiaomi's original Black Shark got unveiled back in April and now it's almost ready to launch in Europe. The handset will be available in 28 countries in the continent starting on November 16.

You'll be able to pick one up from the company's dedicated online store, if you live in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, or the UK.

The Black Shark comes with a 5.99-inch 1080x2160 LCD touchscreen, the Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6/8GB of RAM, 64/128GB of storage, a 12 MP + 20 MP dual rear camera system, a 20 MP selfie snapper, and a 4,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 8.0 Oreo with a stock-like UI. You get a detachable gamepad accessory in the box, and the phone features liquid cooling that reduces temperatures by up to 8 degrees Celsius.

No pricing has been announced yet for the European market, but since the launch is only a week away we assume that will be outed shortly.
