Xiaomi’s sub-brand Black Shark is all set to launch another flagship smartphone under their Black Shark 4 series of phones. The series currently consists of the Black Shark 4 and Black Shark 4 Pro. Now, the Black Shark 4S is all set to launch in India on October 13, 2021 at 3PM China time. That converts to 12:30PM Indian Standard Time.
Black Shark primarily focuses on making gaming smartphones that are extremely powerful to handle anything and everything you throw at it. The 4S will be launching as a successor to the 4 Pro mostly. So, we can expect to see certain incremental upgrades over its predecessor.
Besides, going by the teaser launch date poster of the device, we can understand a couple of things about its design. For starters, the smartphone will most likely be coming with a horizontally aligned triple rear camera setup. Now, this is something that we see on the ASUS ROG Phone 5 as well.
We can also see angular edges on the camera module of the device. There is also an X-shaped stylish back panel design, which gives it the proper look of a gaming device. Without any further ado, here is a quick look at the expected specifications of the 4S, as per leaks and reports.
Black Shark 4S Specifications (Expected)
Although nothing has been officially confirmed from the company’s side of things, we can assume a couple of things going by the leaks and reports. Starting off with the display, the Black Shark 4S will most likely come with an incremental upgrade over the 4 Pro. The 4 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED display. In addition, the display will also come with a fast 144Hz refresh rate. We can expect to see a slightly larger display alongside a couple of other upgrades maybe.

On the processor front, the flagship gaming smartphone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus SoC. Further, the octa-core chipset will pair up with most likely up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage like its predecessor. However, this is only a mere assumption and is to be taken with a pinch of salt.
The Black Shark 4 Pro comes with a 64-megapixel triple rear camera setup. We can expect to see either more sensors or a better primary sensor in the setup in the Black Shark 4S. The 4 Pro also features a 4,500mAh battery with 120W fast charging support. We can expect to see small upgrades on this front as well.
For now, this is all that is known about the device. However, we will soon get to know everything about the device in the coming days. The Black Shark 4 received highest-ever AnTuTu benchmark score earlier this year. We can’t wait to see what the 4S has in store for us!
