Black Shark, the Xiaomi sub-brand has worked hard to produce gaming smartphones that integrate the best specifications in circulation. And the Next Model of the brand (tentatively named Black Shark 5S) shouldn’t shy away from doing so.
Because a famous leaker Digital Chat Station reveals that the next Black Shark will equip itself with the new SM8475 (Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1), whose performance almost screams a miracle when compared with those of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
The name of the phone is not specified, but being a transition model we can refer to it as Black Shark 5S. Apart, he says the smartphone would resume the 2K screen, used on the Black Shark 3 Pro in past years, as well as a 4800mAh dual-cell battery with 100W fast charging.
For the moment we don’t know anything else about Black Shark 5S, whose presentation date is generically scheduled for the second half of 2022.
