Xiaomi Unveils Black Shark Gaming Phone with Snapdragon 845, 8GB RAM and Liquid Cooling

Xiaomi is a brand known for its affordable and high-performance smartphones. The manufacturer is stepping into the world of gaming smartphones with the Black Shark, a phone that has been built from the ground up for hardcore gaming.

Inspired by the Razer gaming phone, the new Black Shark has a green and black finish which makes it look stylish while conveying the fact that it’s not an ordinary smartphone. The manufacturer has added that it is possibly the first ever model to feature an advanced cooling system to keep the device accessible even during long hours of intense gaming.

Black Shark Gaming Smartphone | Hardware Specifications

Black Shark is a gaming smartphone which is ambitious in terms of hardware specifications.The phone has a large 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixel. While most gamers would expect the display to support 120Hz for increased frame rates, this phone doesn’t, which could be a disappointment for professional players.

The display, however, makes up for the same by providing the highest level of brightness with up to 550units and the color gamut has been clocked at 97 percent. Under the rugged body, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 flagship processor combined with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space.

The higher end variant sports an improved 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space which is what gamers would love as it offers enough space to store all their AAA titles. It has a large 4,000 mAh battery and comes close to the Razer Smartphone on many levels except for the lack of the improved hertz in the display.

Gaming Controller

You can purchase a gaming controller which has been exclusively designed for the Black Shark by the manufacturer. The controller works with the phone and is also compatible with most other models making it easier to game on the go.

Liquid Cooling Capability

The Black Shark gaming smartphone has a liquid cooling capability which reduces the processor heat by 8 degree Celsius and ensures the phone is cool at all times, even if you choose to continuously play for hours. It also led to the bulky size of the smartphone which is unavoidable as it is a compromise gamers have to make.


The Black Shark is expected to cost $477 for the 6GB, 64GB storage variant while the other variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage would cost $557. The phone may not be exactly the same as the Razer phone but is a good entry as it has great hardware specs and is supported by Xiaomi.
