The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 may actually be called the Black Shark Helo:
Earlier this year, Xiaomi announced the Black Shark gaming phone as a Razer Phone rival. While this phone was never released outside of China, the company recently began teasing a successor that will be released globally. Naturally, the expectation was that this phone would be called the Black Shark 2, but it appears this will not be the case.
According to information, Xiaomi’s second gaming smartphone will actually be called the Black Shark Helo. Right now, the meaning of “Helo” and the reason Xiaomi chose this name still remain unknown. However, the low-cost brand may have wanted to avoid the Black Shark 2 name due to the very minimal update the new smartphone represents over the original. Moreover, it could be an attempt to avoid confusion. After all, international consumers never received the first device and likely won’t have heard about it.
