Xiaomi Black Shark is the company’s first gaming smartphone that was launched today. The Chinese company collaborated with Black Shark to produce this stunning beast that runs on Android 8.0 Oreo.

A powerful gaming smartphone, the device will be in competition with Razer Phone packing a massive 8GB RAM. This is coming just days after Xiaomi released the Mi Mix 2S and their first ever Gaming Laptop. It looks like the company is set to take over the less competitive gaming market. Perhaps a console soon?
