Announcement. Xiaomi Black Shark 4 and 4 Pro - fresh gaming sharks

A year has passed since the release of the third generation “sharks”. And so.

And here is the Xiaomi unit in charge of the releasegaming smartphones, introduced a couple of heirs. Xiaomi Black Shark 4 and Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Pro. Everything is expected. Powerful hardware, serious cooling system, screens with incredible refresh rates. Everything is top-notch. Except cameras, of course. You have to save on something.

Smartphones are similar. Straight twins. The color sets are only slightly different. And the older brother is ten grams heavier.

Let's start with a price plate. Not three kopecks, of course. But by the standards of harsh gaming devices, prices do not seem prohibitive.

Processors.Inside the Black Shark 4 Pro is the most powerful chipset available for android devices - Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 (around seven hundred thousand AnTuTu points). The Black Shark 4 has a slightly weaker chip, Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 (an average of about 650 thousand points).

The older brother has a little moresophisticated cooling system. Although the system is serious for both devices. Cooling, by the way, is necessary not only for games. But also when charging. Because both smartphones have an absolutely phenomenal charger. 120 watts Charge from zero to full tank in 15 minutes! At the same time, the battery capacity is absolutely average - 4500 mAh.

The screens are big, of course. 6.67 ″.AMOLED-matrix made by Samsung. Resolution - standard 1080 × 2400 (395 ppi). What is completely non-standard is the screen refresh rate. 144 Hz. But that's okay. I was most impressed by the sensor polling rate - 720 Hz! Those. the smartphone will feel your pressure in less than one and a half milliseconds!

There is not much to say about the cameras.They have never been the strong point of “sharks”. Single front cameras with a resolution of 20 MP. The rear cameras are triple - the main module, wide-angle, macro. 48 + 8 + 5 MP for the younger model, 64 + 8 + 5 MP for the older one.

What else is interesting. Additional buttons. A couple of touch-sensitive sensors. And a couple of some “mode switch keys”.

There is NFC, there is a standard audio output, support for “our” LTE frequencies is also there. What is missing is support for memory cards.
