Chinese technology giant Xiaomi recently took the wraps off its latest smartphone called Black Shark. The gaming-centric handset managed to sweep its fans off their feet. The company reportedly designed the handset specifically for gaming. In addition to the gaming-centric features, the smartphone is also home to several high-end specifications — which make the smartphone among the most powerful ones in the Android market. The device reportedly goes on to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip along with 8GB of RAM. On the display front, the device packs a 5.99-inch full HD Plus screen.
The smartphone is not carrying the Xiaomi brand. However, it appears that the company is backing the project. For now, the device is only available in the Chinese market. However, the firm will reportedly be holding a launch event for international markets as well. The exact date and time of the upcoming game have not yet been scheduled. The Chinese launch event reportedly gave away an additional scoop, i.e., Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun inadvertently letting slip visuals of the yet-to-be-released product. According to an online report, Lei Jun — during the launch event — was apparently spotted wearing an unidentified fitness tracker.
Ever since the device was detected on his wrist, netizens went berserk over guessing what it might be as such. Numerous reports soon strolled in, suggesting that Lei Jun might be wearing the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Band 3 smartwatch. For those who aren’t aware, the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is the latest in the range of all the fitness trackers from Chinese smartphone manufacturers. The upcoming device ends up succeeding the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 and the Mi Band HRX Edition, which were significant hits in both, domestic as well as international markets.
As can be recalled, Xiaomi first took the wraps off the Mi Band smartwatch back in 2015. Following which, the Chinese technology giant went on to release the successor to the smartwatch in September 2016. Notably, the smartwatch ended up including a heart-rate sensor apart from the necessary step and sleeping tracking feature as well. Images are doing the rounds of the internet that showcase the device in its full glory. A special report on the online platform suggests that Lei Jun can be seen holding the new Black Shark smartphone. In the images circulating online, keen eyes also went on to spot the great device sporting on the left wrist. The tracker reportedly does not appear to be any device that has already been launched in the market before. “The tracker does not appear to be any device that has already been launched, and looks notably different from any of the fitness trackers that are already available in the market,” an online report suggests.
Many stories have, therefore, gone on to speculate that the details might have something to do with early units of the Mi Band 3. It would make sense then as only the CEO of the company would naturally have access to as such. As of now, nothing else is known about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Band 3. The smartwatch apparently received Bluetooth certification back in February this year. It appears that the smartwatch will continue to retain its key features. The design of the next-generation smartwatch is reportedly different and appears larger. Therefore, it is being assumed that the smartwatch might end up featuring a lot more specifications. Meanwhile, there is no word on when the smartwatch will launch in the market. However, we can hope to see it introduce sometime this month.
