Black Shark 2 gaming phone is on its way, TENAA listing suggests

Xiaomi’s first gaming smartphone Black Shark was released back in April and according to a TENAA listing that just appeared, the company is already looking to release a follow-up.

For now, we only got photos and some tiny details like dimensions, screen size and battery capacity because the listing isn’t complete. The photos reveal a similar design to the original with the patterned back, but the camera setup is now vertically stacked and the fingerprint reader is placed on the back. The one-touch Shark key is here to stay as well.

According to the listing, the handset will feature the exact same screen size screen – 5.99″ and the same 4,000 mAh battery. However, dimensions suggest a bit taller and slightly thicker chassis than its predecessor.

There’s also a possibility that what we are seeing here is a budget alternative to the Black Shark, rather than a successor. We will have a better idea once the listing is completed with the detailed specs.
