Xiaomi Black Shark 4 – Overview

Elite performance with Snapdragon 870, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage
Let the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 perform at its best in every task thanks to the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip. And as if it wasn't powerful enough already, it is in supported by the Snapdragon Elite Gaming mobile platform. This boosts processing speeds by 12% and GPU speeds by 10% compared to the previous generation, so you'll be able to power through even the heaviest games.

This version of the Shark 4 also features a 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 128GB UFS 3.1 ROM, the most advanced memory technologies available. So your games and apps will launch instantly, while system optimisations make file transfers faster than ever. Say goodbye to long loading screens!

Ultra-fast connections with 5G and Wi-Fi 6
Of course, that high-speed performance also carries over to the connectivity section, supporting cutting-edge 5G and Wi-Fi 6 technologies. This way, the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 provides ultra-fast browsing, uploading and downloading both indoors and outdoors. As fast as lightning!

"Sandwich", Xiaomi's liquid cooling system
Want to keep that maximum performance even if you spend hours and hours playing games? No problem! The Black Shark 4 itself will take care of that through a patented soldering technology, with two liquid cooling units sandwiched between the internal components of the handset (which is why Xiaomi has decided to call it "Sandwich"), effectively dissipating heat and lowering the overall temperature of the hardware. You just worry about winning, no matter how long the battle lasts!

However, if you need to increase that cooling "power" with a fan, you can purchase a separate Black Shark Funcooler 2Pro. You won't be disappointed!

Gaming-optimised JoyUI 12.5 interface
As if that wasn't enough, the Black Shark 4 comes with an interface optimised for gamers. The new JoyUI, based on Xiaomi's MIUI 12 (itself based on the Android 11 operating system), will be in charge of improving this experience.

On the one hand, we'll get some basic but powerful features, and also a 2.0 notification system with which we'll be able to view and reply to messages at the same time as playing games, or split the screen to multitask easily. You'll love it!

6.67" ultra-fluid AMOLED display
Now let yourself be impressed by the fascinating 6.67" AMOLED panel, made of a type of material that improves brightness, colour accuracy and battery performance, so you can enjoy the view while you play games or watch your favourite movies and series! Whatever you do, the Black Shark 4 gives you a visual experience of crystal-clear resolution and bold, vivid colours, while adding a fast refresh rate of up to 144Hz for a smooth, frame-by-frame transition.

Ultra-sensitive display up to 720Hz and pop-up triggers
In addition to the Xiaomi Black Shark 4's display, there's also the meticulous touch control with an ultra-sensitive sampling rate of up to 720 Hz, which reduces latency to 8.3 milliseconds (currently the lowest on the market) and minimises the response time for each touch.

To top it off, the Black Shark 4 features pop-up triggers on the side of the phone. These physical buttons provide an even more comfortable and precise control on every game and are fully customisable. When you're not using them, you can hide them back into the frame.

4500 mAh battery with super fast charging
Do you also hate worrying about your phone's remaining battery percentage all day long? Black Shark 4 puts an end to that suffering through a high-capacity 4500 mAh battery, which keeps up with with you through every tough day. Plus, eSports' dual-cell technology doubles the phone's charging speed, reaching 120W* to fill up 100% of the battery in just 17 minutes.

Immersive audio experience
Your listening experience will be on the same level with the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 thanks to the inclusion of two stereo speakers with high-powered amplifier and a large cavity to deliver a bold and immersive sound. Tuned using DTS and Cirrus Logic directional sound technologies, the Black Shark 4 will put an incredible mobile audio system in your hands for you to enjoy every game and movie.

Professional photography with 48 MP, ultra-wide-angle and macro cameras
Of course, you'll also be able to immortalise your best memories with the Black Shark 4 and its triple imaging system, consisting of a 48 MP main camera, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a macro lens. All supported, of course, by a sophisticated software package.

Black Shark boasts that this is their most advanced photography equipment to date, with features that enhance the quality of your creations, such as 60 frames per second photography, 4K high-resolution video, ultra-night mode, electronic image stabilisation (EIS) and a lot more.

Gaming but stylish look
If we can compare the Black Shark 4 to anything, it would be a ninja, as it looks majestic and subtle at the same time. Its gaming aesthetic also gives way to a more elegant and refined design when compared to other phones in this style, such as the Xiaomi Black Shark 3, for example. In any case, its polished metal frame and holographic back cover give the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 the perfect touch to suit today's gamers.
