Blackshark SKR-A0 seen on GeekBench.
Xiaomi is the on verge of launching some of the exciting devices, with the launch of Mi Mix 2S scheduled to launch on March 27. But there is another device appearing on the internet which is stealing the limelight, the most awaited phone from Xiaomi. The Blackshark, a gaming phone by xiaomi. A recent GeekBench listing explicates more on the device listed as- ‘blackshark SKR-A0’
As previously mentioned in the post and the benchmark listing also shows a Snapdragon 845 chipset and 8GB of RAM.
The scores themselves are surprisingly high, even after Snapdragon’s latest SoC under the hood. Some sources according to gsmarena claims this is due to a new aviation-class cooling solution, to keep the CPU and GPU from thermal-throttling under load. That’s just one the many hints that the Blackshark SKR-A0 is the first line of gaming dedicated smartphones, by Xiaomi, which by seeing the scores is going to give a tough competition to the Razer Phone.
There is probably no connection there, though, since the Blackshark SKR-A0 could be a very direct competitor to the Razer Phone, which only recently tried to put a traditional PC gaming spin on the mobile market.
As for other intel about the Blackshark SKR-A0, there is also a recent AnTuTu listing that reveals some potential specs. Apparently, Xiaomi will stick with a 2160 x 1080 pixel display – lower resolution than the Razer Phone. That could be more beneficial to good performance and power efficiency. AnTuTu also mentions Android 8.0 for the Blackshark.
