After presenting the latest Xiaomi Mi 11 a few weeks ago and while we await the Redmi K40 which will be launched on February 25, Xiaomi's sub brand dedicated to mobile gaming, Black Shark, is getting closer to the launch of its next Black Shark 4 .
Black Shark 4 series certified on 3C: 120W charging for both models
Two new Black Shark smartphones have in fact just been certified in China with a standard 120 W fast charge. This is confirmed by the Chinese certification body 3C in the screenshot that we can see just above. In particular, we see support for 20V and 6A charging.
A few days ago, we discovered that the new Black Shark models SHARK PRS-A0 and SHARK KSR-A0. One of them is the Black Shark 4 equipped with Snapdragon 888.
As we can see in the photos, the smartphone now has a completely different design than its predecessors. We no longer have that extremely aggressive look, but a much more ordinary design with a prism-shaped horizontal camera module. The Black Shark logo also has a more understated style.
In terms of specifications, the Black Shark gaming phone will be placed in the "sub flagship" category as it will be equipped with the Snapdragon 870 mobile platform. We will then have a lateral fingerprint recognition, with support for ultra-fast cable charging from 120W. The Black Shark 4 is also expected to be the cheapest 120W charging smartphone on the market.
Previously, Black Shark Technology CEO Luo Yuzhou had stated that in 2021 Black Shark will launch a new gaming phone equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform. In addition to maximum performance, the smartphone will bring further novelties for a better gaming experience.
In any case, the brand has already anticipated that the Black Shark 4 will equip a 4500 mAh battery and can be fully charged in less than 15 minutes.
