Yesterday was officially revealed the day on which the presentation of Black Shark 2 will be held. The interest in gaming smartphones is gradually increasing, although still remains a hybrid category not yet well defined. This is because a product designed for gamers must not be limited to having only a high-level technical specs, a common factor for all top-of-the-range, even non-gaming machines, but must offer something more. Whether these accessories, specific functions for gaming and so on. Waiting to find out if the new “shark” of Xiaomi will respect these standards, let’s see what will be the hardware specifications thanks to the first Antutu benchmark.
As expected, Black Shark 2 will have a Full HD+ resolution display which is a good choice to save the battery and not overload the hardware compartment. However, the phone runs the Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855, including GPU Adreno 640. For memories we see 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, hoping that this is the basic variant. There will also be a version with 12 GB of RAM, as previously highlighted by GeekBench. Software side of course we have Android 9 Pie, with Joy UI custom interface.
the phone scored 359.973 points. In line with the potential of the Snapdragon 855, this is certainly not an incredible score, since the Xiaomi Mi 9 is able to go around 370,000 points. But since this is the first benchmark, the smartphone may not yet be fully optimized.
