Leak: Xiaomi Mi 6X/ Mi A2 spotted with Snapdragon 660, 128GB storage

The idea of a "gaming" smartphone is an intriguing one, though one has to be careful about releasing and support such a device, lest it becomes an eternal joke within the gadget world.

Just yesterday, Xiaomi's Senior Vice President Wang Xiang announced that the company's next smartphone will be unveiled at an event in China on April 25th.

The Xiaomi Black Shark gaming phone may be the flawless device for playing apps like PUBG Mobile, but unfortunately, it comes with a catch. The Xiaomi Black Shark handset's price starts at 2,999 Yuan for 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model and 3,499 Yuan for 8GB RAM + 128GB storage editions. The phone's body is made out of metal, which is unlike anything you'd find in the market as it has been created with gaming in mind. Instead of normal air cooling, the internals of this gaming phone are cooled using a liquid cooling system which Xiaomi claims helps keep the internals of the phone, mainly its SoC, cool by as much as 8 degrees. Powered by a battery of 3000 mAh with USB type-C connectivity for faster charging. That's not bad for a phone which boasts of a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 processor, Adreno 630 GPU, 4000mAh battery, and MEMC image processing chip which promises sharper colors and smoother performance. The front camera will sport a 20MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The cameras on the phone can shoot 4K video at 30fps, and also support Xiaomi's "Smart Beauty" feature to click better-looking selfies.


The specifications of the gaming-focused smartphone, however, is not the problem, as it has what it takes to challenge other similar devices like the Razer Phone. The battery capacity is 4,000m Ah. However, the phone falters when it comes to the display.

There is no denying that both the devices are good options for gaming. It docks on the top of the phone to transform the smartphone into a full-fledged handheld gaming device.

One of the most interesting parts of the Black Shark is the "liquid cooling" system - a heat pipe-style cooling solutions now available in phones like Lumia 950.
