Black Shark 2 official renders arrive ahead of launch today

Now, looking at the renders, it's clear that the Black Shark 2 is very similar to the Meizu 16th in China, albeit a bit thicker with bezels on the top and bottom.

Aimed at power users who love to push their phone to limits by using graphic-intensive apps, games in particular, Xiaomi Black Shark 2 comes with a range of hardware and software optimisations.

Since it is a flagship-grade gaming smartphone, the Black Shark 2 runs on Qualcomm's 7nm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor. Also, like most modern phones, there's also a fingerprint reader embedded in the display. One of the many highlights of the Black Shark 2 is the pressure-sensitive system.

Xiaomi says that it has optimized the phone's display by improving colour accuracy, reducing screen flicker at low brightness, and lowering touch latency to 43.5ms for gaming purposes. Further, Black Shark has provided stereo audio along with artificial intelligence (AI)-based noise reduction and anti-howling sound experience. The Black Shark 2 will be available for pre-orders later today and sales will begin from March 22nd. "Black Shark is a gaming company, composed of passionate gamers". The base variant with 6GB RAM+128GB storage costs Yuan 3,200 (Rs 32,600 approx) and the 12GB RAM+256GB storage model costs Yuan 4,200 (Rs 42,800 approx). The Black Shark 2 comes packed with a big 4000 mAh battery - also found inside the Redmi Note 7 series - with 27W fast charging support. Also included is a vapor chamber for a liquid cooling system, 6-12GB of RAM, and 128-256GB of internal storage.

On the imaging front, Black Shark's latest gaming smartphone has a dual-camera setup on the back with a 48MP primary sensor and a 12MP secondary sensor.

Xiaomi has launched the Black Shark 2 in two colour options - Frozen Silver and Shadow Black - and two storage models in China. The Black Shark 2 could well be the first phone from the company to launch in India in the next couple of months.
