Xiaomi is set to release a direct successor to its Black Shark gaming phone soon, and the device surfaced on TENAA a short while ago carrying three rear cameras and otherwise similar hardware to the original Black Shark.

While the notch may be the biggest trend of 2018, the past twelve months have also seen the advent of a new segment of the smartphone market: That of gaming phones. Companies like Razer, Asus, and ZTE have all launched their takes on the ideal gaming smartphone. Xiaomi, not to be left out, released the Black Shark gaming phone earlier in the year, and it would appear that the company is ready to stick to its guns as it prepares for the release of a direct successor.

The Black Shark 2 surfaced on TENAA earlier in the week, giving us our first glimpse of Xiaomi’s next-gen gaming device. The Black Shark 2 is listed with a 5.99-inch display. The first-gen phone had a FHD+ IPS panel, and we expect its successor to sport similar hardware. It will feature a 4000 mAh battery, just like its predecessor. 

One major difference between the two devices is the number of cameras they sport. While the Black Shark featured two rear cameras, the renders of the Black Shark 2 show it carrying three rear cameras—a bit weird considering the fact that these devices aren’t photography-centric phones at all.

Other details of the Black Shark 2 are currently unknown but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
