Good News for Gamer as Xiaomi BlackShark Gaming Phone is Return to Sale
To compete with Razer, Xiaomi is investing in Black Shark for phones designed for gaming hardware.
Xiaomi officially announced the BlackShark smartphone, facing the gamer market in April this year. Technically, BlackShark was established as an independent company, but it has received a number of investments from Xiaomi to develop and launch the new handset. To compete for the new category with Razer, Xiaomi decided to invest in the company Black Shark to announce phones designed for gaming hardware.
The device went for first official sales on April 20. However, the phone was sold out from the market within few seconds of sales and Xiaomi didn’t mention clearly when the second batch sales would commence for this high demand phone.
There is some good news to store for you now. The next second round of sales will start from June 1st. Back Shark technology CEO, Wu Shimin, confirmed that more units would hit the market later this week. The smartphone was available in April, but due to demand and low shipping the device’s stocks ran out quickly. Shimin said the company had trouble producing new units. Even so, the situation has been resolved, and the Black Shark gamer smartphone will return to sales on June 1 on Friday.
