So, even though the 4,500mAh isn’t the biggest of batteries, especially for a gaming phone, it can be charged in just a few minutes. For starters, the Black Shark 4 and 4 Pro measure in at 6.67-inches and include a 144Hz refresh rate display — ideal for fast-paced FPS and third-person titles like PUBG and Fortnite. There is an insane 720Hz touch sampling rate, too, which Xiaomi claims is the industry’s best on a mobile. Hardcore gamers may want this supposed competitive advantage. Both models include a pressure-sensitive display, too, which should mean that the level of your taps will correspond to different in-game actions/movement. It is not difficult to see that the next generation of Black Shark gaming phone named Black Shark 4, will be the first gaming phone equipped with Snapdragon 888.
The robust hardware delivers marvelously when paired with the phone’s excellent software. The Black Shark 4 Pro puts out outstanding performance consistently and you can easily game for hours without any hitch. The snappy refresh rates and uber responsive AMOLED display will have you winning against friends for ages. This phone chews processor-heavy multi-tasking for breakfast and spits out a buttery smooth user experience.
Between all that, you have a 4500mAh battery that supports 120W charging (and that’s not a typo), whcih can charge the phone to full in less than 17 minutes. Even using the standard 67W charger, you’ll charge to 100% in less than 25 minutes. The main shooter is a 48MP f/1.8, while the other two rear cameras are an 8MP ultra-wide and a 5MP macro. Cameras are more of an afterthought on gaming phones but are still worth mentioning. The Black Shark 4 has a triple camera system on the back and a front selfie camera. The main sensor is what you’ll be using most of the time, with specs that far outperform the other two lenses, with headline features including a fairly decent f/1.79 aperture.
- The Xiaomi Black Shark 4 USB Driver is a free software primarily used to install the Xiaomi Drivers on the Windows Computer with a few clicks.
- The Li-Po 4500 mAh, non-removable battery gives the smartphone a good battery backup.
- It features loudspeakers on both the top and bottom of the phone for stereo sound.
- You can Upgrade or Downgrade Xiaomi Black Shark 4 with a Stock ROM file.
- But in everyday use, I easily lasted a full day or more before falling below the 10% stock ROM (firmware) remaining battery life mark.
The tall aspect ratio is also why the top of the display is so hard to reach one-handed, as mentioned earlier. Almost a year after the initial announcement of the Black Shark 4 Pro in China, the smartphone is set to come to UK shores. With a flick of the textured side key, a side trigger button pops up. Appearance-wise, the Black Shark 4 Pro inherits most of what its predecessor had to offer.
