The Black Shark has already become official, the new mobile for gamers that comes from a new company, supported by the Chinese giant Xiaomi.
However, this is a new independent player who is betting on a specific niche in which Razer is currently working with their Razer Phone and in which Nubia will soon enter with their Red Magic
This is how RGB lighting works
The Black Shark 2 incorporates LED lights for the sides and the back logo of the mobile. Since the peripherals for gamers are very bright, why not adapt the mobile to this trend? The result is striking, especially in the dark: the new filtered video of Black Shark 2 does not leave anyone indifferent.

An aggressive design
The first thing that catches the attention of this mobile is that like all devices focused on gamers has aggressive lines and striking colors. Black and green are the tones chosen and although the front is quite conventional, with the fingerprint sensor in the lower area.
The back part has a lot more character and the X that we see is the one that incorporates the antenna. This is so that the stability of the connection is not worsened by the grip in any position.
Maximum power in every way
If there is a function that demands power it is undoubtedly that of the games. Especially the demanding games. And the Black Shark is a terminal designed specifically for it.
So it is not surprising that we have a Snapdragon 845 as a central processor, with the Adreno 630 GPU. There are two versions depending on the RAM and internal memory. One has 6 GB and 64 GB and the other increases both figures, going to 8 GB and 128 GB.
The performance is so high that Black Shark has designed a liquid cooling system for your device.
A perfect screen to play
It also has the Pixelworks chip created by Qualcomm that improves the sharpness of the images and also the animations, something key in the games.
The battery is 4000 mAh and has USB Type C connector but 3.0, being one of the first mobile to implement this version.
The camera system opts for a front sensor of 20 Mpx with aperture f / 2.2 and a rear one with a 12 Mpx and aperture f / 1.8 and another 20 Mpx with f / 1.8, having an LED flash in this area.
HandShark, a very peculiar accessory
It also has buttons on the sides, to add the typical functions we perform with the trigger buttons. The buttons are called LB and LT.
Joy UI, an interface designed to play
One of the legs of this new proposal is Joy UI , a service created for users who prioritize games and who will use the MIUI account we have to connect.
To this we add a navigation dock that expands the options when we are playing as you can see in the above image.
Shark Space is also incorporated, a game store designed so that the owners of this mobile phone do not miss proposals adapted to their new device.
Price and availability
A device of these characteristics was not expected cheap but the truth is that the advertised price of 2999 yuan (about 390 euros) for the model of 6 GB of RAM and 3499 yuan that of 8 GB of RAM (about 450 euros to change ) , they are very contained.
In addition to the black and green model there will be another silver gray with the same green tones.
The handshark will cost 179 yuan, just under 25 euros to change.

It will be available in China but we do not know if it will leave the borders of this country to America or Europe.
