Xiaomi's Black Shark premium gaming brand has announced that its new, Snapdragon 888-powered flagship is to launch on March 23, 2021 in China. The 4 is slated to have improved, "360-degree, 3D" cooling, triple rear cameras and the shoulder buttons from its 3 Pro forebear. The 2 phones are also likely to have very different designs.

Black Shark has now released several teasers for its imminent upgrade from 2020's 3 and 3 Pro. On this note, these new promos only seem to mention 1 variant, whereas previous leaks had pointed to 2; in addition, it seems there is definitely going to be a 4, even though most OEMs in its space have skipped this number in their own new releases.

The brand's apparent evolution from year to year gets even more bemusing, as it seems the Xiaomi subsidiary has decided to go for a much cleaner rear panel, complete with a simple horizontal camera hump, compared to the triangular feature-rich affairs of the 3 series.

Nevertheless, there is still plenty of scope for RGB logos back there in the 4. Not much is known about its specs for certain, besides its Snapdragon 888 platform and second-gen physical shoulder-buttons. However, Black Shark must be confident in its new performance-focused Android flagship, as it has set its launch for March 23, 2021 - thereby rivalling the global event for the upcoming and also premium OnePlus 9 series.
