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 the case turned out very thick — 9.9 mm.

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
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.
