Considering its specifications, the forthcoming Xiaomi Black Shark 2 might be launched by April soon after  MWC 2019 as duru=ing that time frame a couple of  855 based devices are expected to be launched.



The original Xiaomi Black Shark was released only in China in Apr 2018 and proceeded on sale to buyers in the United Kingdom and Europe in November. The device was based on the Snapdragon 845 SoC and also has up to 8GB of Memory and 128GB of storage, a 5.99 inches screen, a liquid temperature regulation system, and a 4000 mAh battery. Buyers also receive a free game controller known as the Black Shark Gamepad from the box with every device. A refresh known as the Black Shark Helo was launched in October, with a somewhat larger 6.01 inches display and up to 10GB of Memory and 256GB of storage. 


The Black Shark Helo remains available only in China. No particulars of the possible launch dates or price of the next generation Black Shark 2 were declared. It remains unclear whether the organisation will launch it in states other than China.
