Xiaomi’s Black Shark Helo gaming phone starts selling early, but you can’t have it! : Specialized gaming phones were not even a thing before the second half of 2017. However, to the surprise of many, competition in this newly-created segment of the market is starting to heat up.
The two listed versions come with either 6 or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. They are respectively priced at around $460 and $500. The Sports Edition, which boasts 10GB of RAM featured alongside 256GB of storage is currently unavailable, as it is slated for a December 12 release.
Other notable specs of the Black Shark Helo include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip, a 12MP+20MP dual rear camera, and a large 4,000mAh battery. The device also features dual front-facing speakers and a dual pipe liquid-cooling system that is aimed at maintaining performance, even when playing intensive games.
