The Google Play listing also revealed that the Black Shark 4 will have a Full HD+ 20:9 aspect ratio. This isn’t a big surprise, after all, gaming phones are set to stick with this resolution for the better use of GPU. Without having to load a QHD+ resolution the whole time, the GPU will be free to deliver excellent performance and stable frame rates in games. Curiously, the listing suggests a Snapdragon 835. But don’t worry this is clearly a big mistake. We expect the Black Shark 4 to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Even its appearing on AnTuTu already confirmed this fact with a score that comes close to 800,000.
Snapdragon 888 and 120Hz fast-charging
Of course, everything is based on speculation and leaked data. But the Qualcomm’s most high-end chipset seems to be the only plausible choice for a phone that needs to exceed in performance. Moreover, as we stated above, the 8GB of RAM variant probably is the most basic you can get. Black Shark usually unveils multiple versions of its phone with different storage and RAM configurations. We expect the high-tier version to come with either 12GB or 16GB of RAM. The phone will also come with a 4,500mAh battery charged via a whopping 120W fast-charging technology. Through this rate, the phone will be able to come from flat 0 to 100% in just 15 minutes.
We expect more details to surface in the coming weeks. As aforementioned, Xiaomi will not be the only company unveiling a gaming phone. Red Magic and Asus already started to tease their upcoming gaming phones. The latter will bring its ROG Phone 4 a little bit earlier than the usual schedule to compete with Xiaomi and Nubia.
