We are just days away from the launch of the Xiaomi BlackShark smartphone, the company’s first gaming-oriented smartphone, and Xiaomi has released the phone’s latest teasers. The new teasers partially revealed the design of the phone. The gaming smartphone is being released under Xiaomi backed BlackShark Inc company. Today, a fresh photo of the back of the Xiaomi Blackshark got leaked.
According to the latest teaser, the phone is said to have curved corners and edges which should provide a better grip while gaming and shouldn’t be digging into your palm during long gaming sessions, unlike the last-year’s blocky Razer Phone. The teaser shows a fencer holding an epee or saber with the phone on the other end of it. The caption on the teaser translates to “Born to Compete”.
A tipster has claimed that the leaked designs of the smartphone suggest the company is going to use an X antenna Technology. The leaked designs show how the Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi MIMO, LTE and GPS placed in the four corners of the smartphone. The company has already teased about the X-Antenna Technology on April 1 itself, on Weibo.
Earlier today the phone’s back got leaked, which shows off a Green S logo and a dual camera setup on the back. The cameras on the new smartphone are placed horizontally right next to one another and accompanied by what supposedly looks like a dual-tone dual-LED flash. The phone is placed in some sort of case which mostly resembles gamepad case like the Nintendo Switch. It might be a game controller which should be probably be launched alongside the smartphone. According to the leak, the phone is said to sport an OLED panel under which lies the in-display fingerprint scanner and also features surround sound system. The leaks come from a user named Lei Technology, who posted it on the Chinese social media platform, weibo.

Last month, an AnTuTu listing revealed few specifications of the smartphone. The phone is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 from Qualcomm with 8 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. It is said to come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, although it is still unknown if Xiaomi is going to use its MIUI on top or will it go entirely stock android for better performance, with a gamer-esque look.
The phone is said to come with an 18:9 aspect ratio with a Full HD+ panel that has a 2160x1080p resolution. The phone scored an impressive 270,680 on AnTuTu besting out the current smartphones running on the 845 chipset, easily. The phone will be unveiled on April 13, in an event in Beijing, China.
