TENAA listing shows a possible upcoming Xiaomi Black Shark 2

It’s been nearly a year since Razer announced and released its first ever Razer Phone, a gaming

smartphone engineered specifically for immersive experiences in battlefields, racing tracks and all

sorts of terrains. Little did the company know back then, about the trend that it spawned, pushing

numerous other tech companies to follow suit. Asus and its Rog phone is a great example, of honed

skills and craftsmanship.

In fact, we could talk about this new force in the smartphone industry that promises to rise sales

once again for hours and hours. But it would all be hypothetical, if it weren’t for Xiaomi’s Black Shark

series. The Black Shark was a gaming smartphone manufactured by the Chinese tech colossus and it

basically shook the waters with its innovations and features.

Now, TENAA shows a device listed that is definitely a Xiaomi Black Shark. Judging by the different

specs, we could be looking at an early Black Shark 2 leak. If the above statement is true, that’s

ground-braking news, since it’s the first time that any smartphone maker decides to work on a

second generation of their existing gaming phone series. Not only that, but the first generation of

the said series was released 5 months ago. Consequently, such a bold move signals that a new era

for smartphones is on the way.

In the photos that go hand in hand with the TENAA listing, there are no clear big changes in terms of

design with the only exception being the dual camera that is now expected to be put vertically this

time, while the fingerprint sensor also seems to be moved to the back of the handset. Such a change

could possibly mean that we’ll see a full display, maybe even bezel-less although that would be

surprising, considering that as a rule of the thumb all gaming smartphones so far seem to have big

bezels for better grasping.

In terms of technical specs, the listing confirms that there will be 2 SIM card trays, and 4G LTE

connectivity support. It also shows a 5.99inch screen and a 4,000 mAh battery, but the dimensions

point to a slightly taller and thicker device. The rest of the components will remain as they are, with

the Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 running under the hood.

At this point it is worth noting that the listing could refer to a different version of the existing Black

Shark, although something like that would be out of the blue, considering that the current model is

already budget friendly. In other words, a more affordable variant, would probably not make such a

good gaming smartphone anymore. On the other hand, if the model that is depicted is improved,

then it’s clearly a new generation of the series.

Either way, until further releases either confirm or deny the listing, we can’t be sure which way of

the two this is going to go. In any case we can be sure that the smartphone gaming era has begun

and new glory is at sight!
