“Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone features the Snapdragon 855 chipset, LED lightning, and everything a mobile gamer needs”
Black Shark, Xiaomi-backed gaming smartphone brand, has been in the market for the past couple of years, but limited to China and, more recently, a couple of European countries. Its latest smartphone, the Black Shark 2, competes with gaming phones such as the Razer Phone 2, ASUS ROG Phone, and others. However, the Black Shark 2 offers a lot more for the price when compared to the other gaming devices and is an absolute beast. The phone was launched in China earlier this year and is soon going to be available in India as well.
The company has officially announced that the Black Shark 2 will be launched in India on May 27th. It has already sent out invites to the media for an event that will be held in New Delhi. The device recently received the BIS certification in India as well. The phone is available in China for a starting price of RMB 3,199 (~Rs 32,700). This is for the variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage. If the phone is launched at this price in India, then it will also compete with devices such as the OnePlus 7.
