Xiaomi announces it’s Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone

Xiaomi’s Black Shark phones have all the traditional gaming things like glowing lights and the latest specs. The Black Shark 2 was already one of the best-specced phones around, but it didn’t have the latest and greatest Snapdragon chip. The Black Shark 2 Pro fixes that.
