Xiaomi-backed BlackShark has unveiled its latest smartphone in the Indian market, the Black Shark 2. This is the company's first smartphone to launch in India, and one of the rare few gaming smartphones in the Indian market. However, it offers a great set of features at its price point. Let's have a look.
For starters, the Black Shark 2 is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, coupled with 6GB/8GB of RAM and and 128GB/256GB of internal storage. The phone has a 6.39-inch AMOLED panel with full HD+ resolution and a 240Hz touch response rate. The company claims that the phone's display has the lowest latency rate.
Add to that, the Xiaomi-backed Black Shark 2 has a vapour cooling chamber that helps keep internal temperature down during your intense mobile gaming sessions. It also has some gaming-specific features including HDR game visual effects, Super Theatre Mode, 100%> NTSC, full DC filming, and intelligent motion compensation technology.
As for the pricing, the base 6GB RAM/128GB storage model has been priced at Rs 39,999 while the top-end model with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage comes in at Rs 49,999. This pricing seems competitive with the company looking to take on the likes of the OnePlus 7 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10e in the Indian market.
