Black Shark 4 and Black Shark 4 Pro Gaming Phones Announced
Xiaomi’s Black Shark brand has announced two new gaming phones in the form of the Black Shark 4 and Black Shark 4 Pro.
As reported by GSMArena, the phones feature a Samsung-made 6.67” E4 AMOLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sampling rate. The Verge reports that the display is pressure-sensitive as well. They use the Android 11-based JOY UI 12.5 and sport pressure-sensitive shoulder buttons and two mode switch keys. Both have a 4,500 mAh battery and 120W fast charging, which can apparently fully charge the phones in slightly less than 15 minutes.
The Black Shark 4 is powered by a Snapdragon 870, while the Pro version comes with a Snapdragon 888. Camera-wise, the former has a 48MP main camera, 8MP ultra wide camera, and a 5MP sensor for its rear setup, while the latter swaps out the 48MP camera for a 64MP one. Both have a 20MP punch hole camera in front. Outside of the processors and main cameras, other notable differences between the Black Shark 4 and Black Shark 4 Pro are the latter’s two-layer liquid cooling system and RAMDISK.
