Android version and market relevance

In October 2021 was announced smartphone Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro. It is located in the series Xiaomi Black Shark among many others smartphones Xiaomi.

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 4S Pro 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 4S Pro, 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 4S Pro 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 4S Pro 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

By the size of the Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is Super AMOLED-screen with diagonal 6.67″ and with a punch-like notch for selfie camera and sensors (display refresh rate — 144 Hz).

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro the case turned out very thick — 9.9 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 4 500 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (triple camera smartphones): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 20 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Snapdragon 888+ 5G (5 nm) installed in Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro. 8/16 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 256/512 GB. Memory cards in this model, unfortunately, are not supported.

Price for Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro: buy or not to buy?

$750 is the price for Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a cool selfie camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.

Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.

Another re-release of gaming smartphones from Xiaomi: two smartphones Black Shark 4S and 4S Pro with a price tag of $420

For those who like to play games on a smartphone, Xiaomi offers to buy a choice of one of the new smartphones: Black Shark 4S from $420 or Black Shark 4S Pro from $745. This is almost $100 more expensive than the predecessors Black Shark 4 and 4 Pro, which were announced in March 2021. Is it worth overpaying?

Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro
Xiaomi Black Shark 4S and Black Shark 4S Pro

Let’s figure out why the prefix «S» in the name increases the price of a smartphone by almost $100. For example, the Pro model has a newer Snapdragon 888+ processor, but the screen, the main and front cameras remain the same. And the base model Black Shark 4S almost does not differ in characteristics from the Black Shark 4: it has the same screen, the same Snapdragon 870 5G (7 nm) processor, battery, and so on. The only difference is the amount of RAM — instead of 6 GB, you can now choose a configuration from 8 GB. It seems that Xiaomi just needed to re-evaluate six months after the announcement of the Black Shark 4 and 4 Pro. And so that it does not look like a usual rise in price of existing models, it is logical to release supposedly «new» smartphones with similar characteristics, but more expensive by $100.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
