The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 gaming phone will be announced March 18
The Xiaomi Black Shark Helo
Just one day after the Black Shark 2 was spotted on Geekbench, Xiaomi has released a new teaser poster which confirms the next-gen gaming phone will make its official debut on March 18 in China.
Accompanying the processor will probably be a minimum of 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage. However, another configuration involving 256GB of storage and 12GB is to be expected. There may also be a version with 10GB of RAM, like the outgoing Black Shark Helo.
Unfortunately, the external aspects of the gaming smartphone remain largely a mystery at the moment. But looking at Xiaomi’s previous releases, an 18:9 display seems extremely likely. Similarly, a unique rear design with green hues could be on the cards too.
The gaming smartphone is expected to include a new liquid cooling system in addition to Android 9 Pie and a battery that boasts a capacity of around 4,000mAh.
As has been the case in the past, the Xiaomi Black Shark 2’s availability will likely be limited to China initially. By the end of April, though, sales should commence in other regions such as Europe. Unfortunately, a US release is extremely likely at this point.
