Last updated on January 22nd, 2019

Six months after releasing Xiaomi Black Shark, Xiaomi has now introduced a new model named Xiaomi black Shark Helo. The handset is making a little bit changes to the hardware as compared to Black Shark but it is still having a distinctly “gamer” aesthetic which means it really glows, isn’t it?

The Xiaomi Black Shark Helo specifications include a gorgeous 6.01-inches screen based on AMOLED Technology with Full HD+ and higher nits of brightness as well as amazing watching and playing experience. The handset runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system which is planned to upgrade to Android 9.0 Pie sooner.

In terms of optics, it’s backed by a dual rear camera configuration of 12MP + 20MP for shooting beautiful and brighter images. On the other hand, there’s a 20MP FaceTime sensor which performs better as compared to Xiaomi Black Shark.

Moving on, it’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a hefty 10GB of RAM with 256GB of onboard memory for super-smooth and flawless performance.
