There’s now no question that a company Xiaomi has invested in will release a smartphone that could rival the Razer Phone.

Nanchang Black Shark Technology Co., Ltd., or simply Black Shark, has already published a teaser image of the device on its official Weibo account. The post does not reveal any specs except for one: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Which means the gaming phone, code-named Blackshark, will be powered by the same processor that is and will be used by most flagship handsets this year.

Reports say that Blackshark will be have the following memory configurations:

  • 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory;
  • 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory; and
  • 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory.

Thus, we don’t actually know if the Blackshark we saw on Antutu in February this year is for real. That showed a device with 32GB of built-in storage. Another configuration perhaps? Still, 32GB for a gaming phone these days may be less than ideal. But oh boy, would you look at that high 270,680 benchmark score. It’s even higher than the Samsung Galaxy S9+‘s average score.

The Blackshark’s screen is said to have a 2,160 x 1,080 resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. More importantly, the refresh rate is supposedly 120GHz, just like that of the Razer Phone. Take note that the higher the refresh rate, the more valuable it is for gaming and reducing lag.

The smartphone’s also reported to support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast-charging technology, come with Shark Space, which is similar to Apple’s Game Center, and ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.

Will this be announced ahead of the Xiaomi Mi 7? We can’t wait to find out.
