Black Shark also launched a gamepad peripheral that you can use for games such as PUBG and FortNite, and the company will be launching other accessories soon. Buyers will have to pay CNY 179 (roughly Rs 1860) for it. The smartphone runs Android 8.0 Oreo and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.

If you've seen the Razer Phone, then you will not be surprised at the black and green color scheme of the Black Shark - although there is a "sky gray" variant. You get a 5.99-inch 2160×1080 IPS LCD in that trendy 18:9 aspect ratio, and presumably at 60Hz - not matching the buttery-smooth 120Hz of the Razer Phone.

Finally, it will be running on Android 8.0 Oreo with MIUI 9 on top, and if the company plans to showcase the Mi A2, we could see stock Android 8.0 with a couple of Xiaomi apps on board.

Xiaomi's even devised a liquid cooling system to make sure temperatures stay down by up to 8°C. As per the information from the partners in the Capital region, the company has halted the supplies for Mi A1 which gives strong hints that company is planning to launch its second Android One based smartphone in India. The battery charges over USB-C and there's QuickCharge 3.0 so it fills up relatively fast as well.

The Black Shark is an entirely new device with customized hardware to bring out the best gaming performance out of a handset.

- In addition to the Snapdragon 845, the Black Shark gaming phone also packs in a dedicated Pixelworks image processing chip that supports something that the company is calling intelligent motion compensation technology that aids in image enhancement and dark scene detail processing for enhanced gaming experiences. It goes on sale in China on April 20. The mod, while acting as a gamepad, also has an internal 340 mAh battery, that is claimed to offer up to 30 hours of gaming on a single charge.

According to the teaser, the Xiaomi Mi 6X will be available in a blue colour variant with a full metal unibody design and an iPhone X style dual camera setup. On the front, there is a 20MP sensor with 1.0-micron pixel size, f/2.2 aperture for selfies and video calls. The phone comes with a front-mounted fingerprint scanner and a glowing logo on the back.
