Xiaomi’s ‘Blackshark’ gaming smartphone appears on AnTuTu with Snapdragon 845 SoC and 8 GB RAM

Last year in November, Razer – a company that makes gaming peripherals – launched a gaming smartphone called Razer Phone. The Razer Phone comes with top-end specs like Snapdragon 835 SoC, 8 GB RAM, dual rear cameras, 120 Hz display, and, 4000 mAh battery. Well, we might see another gaming smartphone coming to the market. But, this one would be offered by Xiaomi. This smartphone is currently called Blackshark, and, it has appeared on AnTuTu with its specifications.


Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi has reportedly invested in Black Shark, and, the company is reported to sell gaming smartphones under the Black Shark brand. While there’s no word from Xiaomi yet regarding this matter, a smartphone has been listed on AnTuTu under the Blackshark name.


According to AnTuTu, this smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 845 chip which is paired with 8 GB RAM and backed by Adreno 630 GPU to handle graphically intensive tasks like gaming.

AnTuTu further reveals that the phone runs Android 8.0 Oreo, and, has a display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The listing doesn’t reveal the size of the display, but, we expect it to be 5.7-inch or larger in size. Moreover, a resolution of  2160 x 1080 pixels also means that the display will have an aspect ratio of 18:9 which is all abuzz right now.

Furthermore, the smartphone also has 32 GB of internal storage, but, we can safely assume it to be available in 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants as well. The phone also made a score of 2,70,680 points on AnTuTu which is impressive.

Apart from this AnTuTu listing, there aren’t any other evidences of this gaming smartphone’s existence, hence, we are unsure of when it will be announced.
