Xiaomi's player brand, Black Shark, has just unveiled its new model in China: the Black Shark 2, powered by the latest Snapdragon 855, with 12GB of RAM, and can be used as a Nintendo Switch.



Gamer smartphones have multiplied in recent years, boosted by the arrival of Razer on the market. Razer Phone 2, Asus ROG Phone, Nubia Red Magic Mars, references are multiplying without really innovating.


Xiaomi also started the race with a new brand: Black Shark, then improved its formula with the Black Shark Helo. It's time to try something new with the newly unveiled Black Shark 2.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is the first smartphone to feature a 12GB RAM configuration. He also takes advantage of the manufacturer's third generation passive cooling system with a very large heat board promising increased heat dissipation to run his Snapdragon 855 at full speed for a longer period of time.


Concerning its AMOLED screen, which is not cut by a notch, Black Shark also promises a lot. The company claims to have the slab with the lowest latency on the market (43.5 ms), promising increased responsiveness to players. This slab covers 108.9% of the DCI-P3 color space.


The Nintendo Switch smartphone

The particularity of the Black Shark range has always been to have a dedicated controller to clip on one side (first model) or both sides (second model) of the smartphone. Here, the concept goes much further and is inspired by the Nintendo Switch.


With the DisplayPort, Black Shark offers you the ability to connect your smartphone to an HDMI TV and turn it into a backup console. The usual controller, which attaches to both sides of the smartphone, can now be used completely independently through an accessory that is reminiscent of the Joy-Con holder on the Nintendo system.
