You would think that there won’t be another Black Shark gaming phone in the offing this year, given that the first was launched just this April. But a listing on the website of China’s certification body says otherwise.

A device with model number AWM-A0, believed to be the Xiaomi Black Shark 2, has showed up on TENAA’s site. The accompanying image reveals the same patterned back design as the original’s.

Xiaomi Black Shark. See how it compares with the second one.

However, the two cameras are now stacked vertically in the upper-middle area. Under them is a fingerprint sensor, which used to be located just below the screen. Gone are the recessed parts on the rear, but there’s still a dedicated button along the edge of the handset.

Just like before, the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has a chin on the front. It’s a bit smaller, though. What we can’t figure out is if there’s a notch at the top. There seems to be none, so we’re thinking it could have a slim upper bezel. The side bezels look thin, too.

Unfortunately, there’s not much information when it comes to the gaming phone’s specifications. All we know is that the second Black Shark supports TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, cdma2000, CDMA 1X, and GSM standards; accepts two SIM cards; and measures 160mm x 75.26mm x 8.7mm. Interestingly, the device retains the 5.99-inch multi-touch display and the 4,000mAh battery of its predecessor.

Of course, there’s a possibility that the so-called Xiaomi Black Shark 2 could be a lower-end version of the first Black Shark, a handset that has consistently stayed at the top of benchmark tool Antutu’s monthly list of best-performing Android devices.
