Recently, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has officially unveiled in China its smartphone specially designed to play video games of which we had been hearing rumours for weeks. The mobile for gamers of Xiaomi is known as Black Shark and includes all the features desired by gamers: good screen resolution and powerful specifications.
The Xiaomi Black Shark has a 5.99-inch screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels in 18:9 format. Its design follows the gaming aesthetic, which is especially noticeable in the back, where we can see the logo of the model and green lines that highlight an area that has the greater thickness, which presumably houses the liquid cooling system that equips the device.
At the heart of Xiaomi’s gaming mobile, we found a Snapdragon 845 processor, accompanied by an Adreno 630 GPU, 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage, depending on the version.
This equipment is more powerful than the Razer Phone, the first phone for gamers that Razer presented in November 2017. The model of 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM has obtained an Antutu score of 270,680 and the most advanced version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of ROM has a score of 279,464, while Razer Phone only got 179,377. Of course, the strength of the Razer Phone is the screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz, something that we do not find in the bet of Xiaomi.
The Black Shark is equipped with a liquid cooling system that the company claims is capable of reducing the temperature of the components to 8ºC. In this way, users will not have to worry about the terminal warming up during extended gaming sessions. The battery has a capacity of 4000mAh to provide up to 5 hours of play and also has Quick Charge support (Quick Charge 3.0).
In the photographic section, we have a dual rear system of 12 + 20MP and a front camera of 20MP. In the back housing, we can find the fingerprint reader to unlock the device. In addition, it includes a game controller that pairs with the smartphone very easily.
The price of the Xiaomi Black Shark of 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM is 2,999 yuan (480 dollars), while the 8 GB version of RAM and 128 GB of ROM costs 3,499 yuan (560 dollars). The controller, on the other hand, can be purchased separately and is worth 179 yuan (30 dollars).
