But when we analyse the success of the funded/ sister concerns of top companies and their products those doesn’t have much success ( ZUK by Lenovo ) which is good earlier with top specs. But consistency matters as there are no sounds about it nowadays .


The BLUESHARK is the company which is being funded by Xiaomi. Black Shark Technology CEO, Peter recently said that the company currently has more than 300 employees. In which, more than 90% are designers and engineers.

He also said that many in the team are themselves gamers. We should know more details about the phone soon.


There are several leaks about the specifcations  Last week official Black Shark account on weibo and Qualcomm China confirmed that the gaming phone will be powered by Snapdragon 845. Now it has announced that the phone will be announced on April 13th. The company also confirms that Xiaomi has invested in this project.

The phone is rumored to come with a 120 Hz display to compete with the Razer Phone , which is the only standard mobile which is released for the gaming  lovers.

Further, the report suggests that the phone will also support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. Specifications-wise, the smartphone should be having 32/64gb memory with 6/8 gb memory with 18:9 (full HD) display .
