The Xiaomi Black Shark 5 series are expected this year and we are already hearing the first rumors on those. The latest report comes from a renowned Weibo tipster and it talks about the vanilla member of the new family.
The report points to a Snapdragon 888+ chipset paired with a 144Hz Samsung E4 AMOLED flat display with 720Hz touch sampling rate. A 4,600mAh battery with 120W charging support will sit behind it.
If those specs sound oddly familiar, it’s because they are almost identical to the Black Shark 4S Pro’s. The Black Shark 5 Pro, on the other hand, is supposed to have the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and up the resolution of its 144Hz display to QHD+ and the battery capacity to 5,000mAh.
The Black Shark 4 duo was announced in March last year, so we are probably still at least a couple of months away from seeing the 5 series officially.
