Xiaomi is expected to introduce a new generation of gaming smartphones under the Black Shark brand in the near future. Last year, two versions of the gaming device were released. Xiaomi is expected to continue this tradition and delight its fans with Black Shark 4 and Black Shark 4 Pro smartphones. Today, a network source revealed the key characteristics of these devices.

Chinese tech blog Digital Chat Station reported that the base version of the smartphone will be based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset, positioned as a solution for affordable flagships. Basically, this chip is slightly overclocked compared to last year’s Snapdragon 865+. As for the Black Shark 4 Pro, this device boasts the uncompromising performance of the current flagship 5nm Snapdragon 888 processor.

Earlier this year, it was announced that the Black Shark 4 will feature 120W fast charging support and a 4,500mAh battery. This will allow you to fully restore your energy reserve in 15 minutes. It was assumed that such fast charging would be the prerogative of the older version, but the source said that both versions of the device will be able to boast of it. In addition, it is reported that the Black Shark 4 Pro will receive a more compact screen than last year’s Black Shark 3 Pro. The novelty will offer a 6.67-inch panel with a resolution of Full HD +, while last year’s model is equipped with a 7-inch AMOLED-matrix with a resolution of 1440p.

Xiaomi Black Shark 4 smartphones are expected to be unveiled and go on sale in China by the end of this month. The global launch of devices is expected a little later.
