Black Shark, the gaming phone manufacturers funded by Xiaomi, launched their latest device, the Black Shark 2 in China in March. The company is bringing the smart phone to India on May 27. They have sent out media invites for an event taking place on the date.
The China based smartphone maker had set up their headquarters in India a couple of months back, hinting at a recent launch. But, there was no information regarding when the launch would take place.
The specifications include the latest flagship SoC from Qualcomm, i.e., Snapdragon 855 with 6 0r 8 Gigs of RAM. Another major attraction would be the display, which is a 6.39 inch FHD+ sAMOLED panel, with a 240 Hz touch digitizer. This helps reduce the input latency to 43.5 ms, which makes it well suited for the task it is aimed at- Gaming.
The device also comes with a 4000 mAH battery with 27W QC 4.0+ fast charger in the box. Another USP would be the gamepad that can be mapped to manipulate any on screen actions. Camera is handled by dual 48 MP (Pixel binned to 12 MP)+12 MP telephoto in the rear and 20 MP single up front.
As of now, there is no concrete info regarding the pricing of the device. But we expect the device to launch at around the 33,000 INR (480$) mark for the base variant.
