Gaming phones have become increasingly popular ever since the Razer Phone was released. We got a gaming phone from Asus and we also got the Xiaomi Black Shark. Now the Xiaomi Black Shark has been refreshed and comes with 10 GB of RAM.
The new devices come with a better display. While the first version had an LCD display the Helo comes with an AMOLED display. There is no notch. The screen is 6-inches and the resolution is 2,160 x 1,080. Switching to OLED means that you get better battery life and deep blacks. The phone can now upscale SDR to HDR which is going to make the visual look even better.
The gaming phone is powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset and you can choose to go with 6-10 GB of RAM, which is almost as much as what I have on my gaming PC. The phone also comes with LED lighting on the side, much like what you get with the Asus phone.
The device comes with a Gamer Studio feature that allows users to play with settings like the display settings, network settings and much more in order to optimize games. Like every high-end smartphone on the market, this one comes with a powerful camera. On the back, you get a 12MP+20MP f/1.75 setup and he front facing camera is a 20MP f/1.75 selfie shooter.
You can now get the joystick attachment for both sides of the phone. One is standard for the 6 GB model but you get two out of the box with the 10 GB model. The phone is going to release in China before anywhere else and according to pricing there, it will cost around $461 for the 6GB/128GB variant. You can pay $504 for the 8GB/128GB model. Pricing for the 10 GB model is not public yet.
Let us know what you think about the Black Shark Helo and whether or not you are interested in getting one of these devices.
