Black Shark, a Xiaomi-backed company, is preparing to launch its new gaming-oriented smartphone on Friday, April 13.

The China-based manufacturer has confirmed the launch with invitations for the event held in China already sent out. This gaming smartphone thought to be aimed at competing with the first-generation Razer phone.

Black Shark’s teaser is a poster that shows half of the device. A message written in Chinese on the poster roughly translates to “Everyone has the opportunity to become a master”.

The company already previously announced on their official Weibo account that the phone will be running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Other features of the phone include a 18:9 aspect ratio display, and a 2160 x 1080 pixel display resolution.

Additionally, the phone will have an 8GB RAM, a 32GB ROM and will run on Android’s 8.0.0 Oreo.

Do take note that this is not a Xiaomi phone on itself. The smartphone company is a major investor of Black Shark and is known to provide backing for other hardware startups in China. However, not all of them are put under Mi’s brandname.

Unfortunately, Black Shark’s gaming phone will most likely be only available in Chinese market. There is no word yet as to whether they plan to roll it out overseas.

Xiaomi Mi 6X Leaked Images: 18:9 Display, Dual Rear Camera

Reportedly Xiaomi is working on their newest smartphone and the successor of Xiaomi Mi 5X that was released last year. There are some leaks of its photos online and it kinda looks like the Apple’s iPhone X. With 18:9 display and the famous vertical dual back camera. It shows that it will have 2 color variants- Black and Gold. The leaks also show that it will sport a fingerprint sensor on the back of the handset.

The most recent leak was posted on Weibo and spotted by OnPhones that shows the front and back design of the phone. The most obvious and recognizable feature on the leak is the vertical dual rear camera popularized by the iPhoneX, which was released late last year.

Its predecessor Xiaomi Mi 5X sported a horizontal dual rear camera design and as for this leak, its somehow new to Xiaomi users.

The Mi 5X was launched in certain markets including the ones in India as the Mi A1. Its running in Android OS and part of the Android One initiative by Google.

Aside from the noticeable camera design, you may also see the fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone and was also a feature of the Mi 5X.

Now, on the front, you may see a bezel-less display with a possible aspect ratio of 18:9. It might sport the same 5.99-inch 18:9 display same as the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus. The Mi 6X was rumored to be showcased at MWC 2018 this February.

The photo leaks focused only on the physical aspect but the internals might be powered by Xiaomi’s leaked Surge S2 processor. It features an octa-core processor, with four cores of Cortex-A73 clocked at 2.2GHz, and four cores of Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.8GHz. The processor is also said to have a Mali-G71 MP8 graphics processor and support for LPDDR4 RAM and UFS 2.1 storage.

Well, this is just a speculation but Xiaomi will sure give us a “WOW!” and we’ll just wait for that moment to come.
