Xiaomi's Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone goes on sale in Europe
Initially introduced in China on March 18, Xiaomi Black Shark 2 can be purchased from Europe beginning March 28, at 6.00 PM CET. You'll be able to buy the phone from every European country where Xiaomi officially sells its phone, and here is how much you'll have to pay.
The Black Shark 2 with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal memory will be available for purchase for €549, while the 12GB RAM and 256GB storage will cost €649. For customers in the UK, the smartphone will be available for £479 and £559, respectively.
If you take away its gaming-related features, the Black Shark 2 remains a very powerful flagship smartphone, so even if you're not a gamer, it can be a great alternative to Samsung, LG and Huawei's flagships.
Speaking of gaming features, Xiaomi explains that the Black Shark 2 embeds the only direct touch liquid cooling system in the work. Also, the phone's display benefits from the world's lowest latency touch.
As far as US availability goes, we doubt this will come in the United States at all since Xiaomi hasn't yet officially entered the market, although it repeatedly said it will eventually happen.
