Xiaomi is releasing its Black Shark gaming smartphone on Friday in China. The phone has been leaked multiple times. Today, a new leak has surfaced on the internet and the phone’s rear panel is what it has revealed. It is worth mentioning that the previous leak was claimed fraudulent by Xiaomi.
In the image, one can see a Bluetooth controller in the top which might contain a joystick and cross keys. An official teaser also mentioned the same type of removal Bluetooth controller on the phone. The controller takes us back to the Nintendo Switch which had a similar controller on both the sides of its 7-inch display panel.
The leak also shows a horizontal rear camera setup with an LED Flash. Black Shark’s logo is placed elegantly in the centre of the panel. However, we do not see the fingerprint sensor on the back. It can be that the sensor has been placed below the 18:9 aspect ratio display.
The leak also comes in-line with a hand-drawn image released earlier. The image had an “X” antenna to let users play without having to touch it. The concept image also showed the placement of GPS, Wi-Fi, dual 4G LTE and Wi-Fi MIMO receivers. The Black Shark phone is also speculated to come with Snapdragon 845 and an OLED panel at its disposal.
The Black Shark will also have two variants. One with 6GB of RAM + 128GB of ROM and the other with an 8GB of RAM + 256GB of ROM. It will run on Android 8.0 Oreo with a custom ROM on top, mixed with MiUI.
