Xiaomi Black Shark 2 launch date is October 23rd, leaked poster claims

“The Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone is expected to sport a 5.99-inch FHD+ display and a Snapdragon 845 SoC”

Several reports in the past have indicated that Xiaomi is working on its second gaming smartphone, which will allegedly arrive as the Black Shark 2. Now, a leaked poster has suggested that Xiaomi could unveil the smartphone at an event in China on October 23rd at 6pm local time (11am IST). Notably, the poster of the Black Shark 2 event has appeared soon after the phone was spotted on the Chinese certification agency TENAA’s website.

The leaked poster of the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 doesn’t reveal anything about the smartphone’s design or specifications. However, the phone’s recent TENAA certification indicated that the handset could come with a slightly different design than its predecessor. While the original Black Shark (first impressionssports a horizontally-stacked dual camera setup at the rear, its successor is tipped to feature two vertically-stacked cameras on the back. Also, it looks like the latter’s fingerprint sensor will be placed on the back, instead of the front.

As far as the specs are concerned, the Black Shark 2 could flaunt a 5.99-inch full HD+ display with the old aspect ratio of 16:9. The phone is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, aided by up to 8GB of RAM, depending on the model. The handset is said to offer a liquid cooling system, latest Android experience, and a beefy 4,000mAh battery. Sadly, no other specifications of the smartphone are available at the moment.

Xiaomi hasn’t yet officially confirmed that the Black Shark 2 is in the pipeline or not. So it’s worth advisable to take the aforementioned information with a pinch of salt for now. Notably, the company hasn’t yet launched the first-gen Black Shark in globally yet, but it’s being hinted to change sometime soon.
