Overview Xiaomi Black Shark 4
Android version and market relevance
The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Xiaomi Black Shark 4 works on Android 11, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2021. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Xiaomi Black Shark 4, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.
Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Xiaomi Black Shark 4 works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. Xiaomi Black Shark 4 has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.
Screen, body and battery
It is worth paying attention to good 6.67-inch capacitive Super AMOLED touchscreen smartphone Xiaomi Black Shark 4 with display refresh rate 144 Hz. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, Xiaomi Black Shark 4 has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies from 80% to 90% of the area of the entire front panel. And an almost invisible hole in the screen adds recognition to the smartphone and increases the screen area, but does not increase the physical size. The thickness of the case is 9.9 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 4 500 mAh.
Main camera and selfie camera
A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 20 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.
Processor and Internal Memory
And write a few words about the performance of Xiaomi Black Shark 4. Of course, the very first thing that will be discussed is the processor. The model received a 8-core processor Snapdragon 870 5G (7 nm).
The second performance characteristic in our opinion is the amount of RAM. The Xiaomi Black Shark 4 has 6 installed on the RAM, but you can choose the version with 12 GB of RAM, to make the smartphone work even faster.
The built-in flash memory of this model has the volume 128 GB, but you can choose the version with 256 GB.
Price for Xiaomi Black Shark 4: buy or not to buy?
So we told about not very expensive powerful smartphone Xiaomi Black Shark 4 with a huge screen, chic main camera and very good selfie camera, and still there is a great capacious battery.
All these characteristics in 2021 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in March 2021 at a price of $380. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.
