I think the Asus company will not enjoy the leader's position for long because Xiaomi decided to refresh its device and presented Black Shark Helo. The new smartphone includes AMOLED screen with FullHD + resolution and 6,01 diagonal. The processor remains the same or Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, which is powered by a battery with the 4000 mAh capacity. At the moment it is the best processor available on the market, only at the beginning of the year 2019 we will see more powerful SoC.

Black Shark Helo will be available in three variants:

  • 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory too 3199 yuan, $ 461
  • 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory too 3499 yuan, $ 504
  • 10 GB RAM and 256 GB internal memory too 4199 yuan, $ 605

What changes have occurred in the device relative to the previous generation?

Most of the change is seen in the back, which has been redesigned. The dual horizontal lens has been replaced with a double vertical. His position has also changed, this time it is in the middle, not near the edge. There is a fingerprint reader under the cameras, in person My 8 definitely prefer to use face unlocking. When it comes to the optics of the new model, at the front is a selfie camera with 24 Mpx resolution with f / 2.2 shutter, and double 12 + 20 Mpx on the back.

The second big change is the gamepad, originally overlapping the case and was only on one side. In the new version of Xiaomi, Nintendo and the gamepad were inspired by both sides of the smartphone. It's true that I did not have the pleasure of playing on any Black Shark, but the physical buttons will always be better in games than messing around on the screen.

The sale of Black Shark Helo will begin on 12 in December in China. At the moment I do not have any information about the official sale of a smartphone in other markets.
