Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is already set to launch their latest smartphone Mi Mix 2S with Snapdragon 845 Soc processor this coming March 27. However, their rumored first gaming smartphone Xiaomi Blackshark has been spotted online and scores high on GeekBench ahead of the launch.

As per the GeekBench listing, the Xiaomi Blackshark scores an impressive 2452 points in the single-core test and 8452 points in the multi-core test in terms of performance. Last February, this device was previously seen on the AnTuTu benchmark scoring highly impressive 270,680 as well. Xiaomi Blackshark seems to perform better than the Samsung Galaxy S9+ variant with the Snapdragon 845 processor scoring 2422 points in the single-core test and 8351 points in the multi-core test.

In terms of specification, the Xiaomi Blackshark SKR-A0 might feature a full high-definition display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2160 pixels. Under the hood, the device might be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC chipset clocked at 1.77 GHz and paired with 8GB of RAM onboard. Xiaomi Blackshark is suspected to come running Android 8.0 (Oreo) operating system right out of the box.

The Xiaomi Blackshark SKR-A0 might have 128GB or 256 GB of UFS internal memory storage, which is suspected to be expandable. However, this device might not come with stock Android or Xiaomi’s custom user interface, MIUI. Xiaomi Blackshark is rumored to come with a top-class digital signal processor (DSP) and a new aviation-class cooling system to perform better and keep the CPU and GPU lower from thermal throttling, as reported by The Indian Wire.

The release date of Xiaomi Blackshark SKR-A0 is rumored to be unveiled with Mi Mix 2S but is unlikely; some speculated by the end of this year. Once launched, the device will be under the company’s new banner ‘Blackshark’ making it their first entry in the gaming smartphone market. Xiaomi Blackshark will compete directly to the Razer Phone packed with a 120Hz screen, Snapdragon 835 processor, 8GB of RAM, a huge 4000 mAh capacity battery, loud stereo speakers, and a cooling system for better performance.
