Xiaomi Black Shark 2 with RGB Lighting shows up in hands-on video

With the Global website of Xiaomi backed Black Shark going live, we are now sure that the company will soon launch the successor to Black Shark Gaming smartphone. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 was seen recently in a hands-on video, that reveals one of the key highlights of the successor. Just like the newly launched Razer Phone 2, the Black Shark 2 is coming with RGB Lighting, which is something you just don’t want to miss if anything is made for gaming.

As the hands-on video shows, the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has a different design than the predecessor. So, the back now looks pretty clean unlike the first generation Black Shark gaming phone. There is just a dual camera setup placed vertically in the center, along with the Black Shark logo below it. As mentioned above, the phone has RGB Lighting, so there are LEDs on the sides, as well as underneath the logo.

The back seems like it’s made up of glass so expect the phone to support wireless charging as well, just like the Razer Phone 2. The video didn’t reveal the front of the Xiaomi Black Shark 2, but since it is a gaming smartphone, don’t expect edge-to-edge display like most of the normal Android phones launched this year. It would be great to see stereo front firing speakers like Razer Phone 2. The specifications and the launch date is not known so stay tuned for that.
