Xiaomi Black Shark 2 will be officially presented on October 23rd

Xiaomi launched the Black Shark smartphone earlier this year. The device was made entirely for gamers, so as to be able to challenge giants of the “gaming” sector like the Razer Phone.

The phone was only launched in the Chinese market, and details about international availability had remained pretty poor until this month. But in recent days, the global website has made it clear that the launch of Xiaomi Shark variants in the world markets is imminent. But that’s not all – Black Shark 2 was also spotted on the well-known benchmark portal GeekBench, and recently a poster showing the launch date of the new phone has also been leaked.

According to the poster, in fact, the new Xiaomi Black Shark variant should be launched on October 23rd. The poster, identified first by MySmartPrice, does not explicitly mention that the coming device is the Black Shark 2 – therefore it could also be the “international version” of Black Shark. However, if we consider that Xiaomi Black Shark was launched in April, it may still be too early for the announcement of a successor.

On the other hand, with the Black Shark 2 recently noticed on TENAA, Xiaomi could follow the trend of the biennial update cycle as practiced by many other Chinese companies – therefore, Black Shark 2 could be launched just this month, even if now there is no official announcement from Xiaomi.

As mentioned, the Black Shark 2 variant has also been spotted on GeekBench. The phone is listed with the model number AWM-A0, with a single core score of 2403, while the multi-core score is 8389. The device should work with Android 8.1 Oreo, while the processor should be Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.

The recent TENAA list instead revealed that the upcoming Black Shark device sports a 5.7-inch full-HD + display, a 4000 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 845 processor, combined with an Adreno 630 GPU and 8 GB of RAM.
