“The Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone is rumoured to go official as the Black Shark 2 Helo”
Xiaomi is all set to unveil its next-gen gaming smartphone called the Black Shark 2 at an event in China on October 23rd. Ahead of the unveiling, we’ve already seen a number of leaked images and specifications of the upcoming smartphone. Now just a day ahead of the unveiling, a gadget tipster has claimed that the Black Shark 2 could go official as the Black Shark Helo. In addition, the company has teased a couple of features of the upcoming flagship.
The Blackshark 2 Gaming Phone isn’t actually called Blackshark 2. The Official name of the phone will be ‘Blackshark Helo’. I don’t know what ‘Helo’ means but I’m pretty sure, it is the name of the upcoming Gaming Phone (Confirmed by Multiple Sources). #Blackshark pic.twitter.com/1lz2kFp1JA— Ishan Agarwal (@IshanAgarwal24) October 21, 2018
According to gadget leakster Ishan Agarwal, Xiaomi will be launching its next-gen gaming smartphone as the Black Shark Helo. However, it is not clear what ‘Helo’ will stand for at the moment. Sadly, the tipster hasn’t revealed anything else regarding the upcoming Black Shark gaming offering.
As per the official teasers, the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 or Black Shark Helo will feature liquid cooling, just like its predecessor. However, there’s no word if the second gaming smartphone from the brand will sport the same liquid cooling technology as the previous-gen offering. The vendor has also revealed that the device will offer great signal reception so there are no issues while playing online games.
Talking about the features, the Black Shark 2 or Helo is expected to sport a 5.99-inch full HD display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The smartphone could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, aided by up to 8GB of RAM. The handset is said to arrive with 128GB of RAM, dual primary cameras, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. A 4,000mAh battery is expected to complete the list of the specifications. We will have official details tomorrow, so watch this space for regular updates.
