Black Shark also claims it has HDR 10+ support, a 111% DCI-P3 calibration and a 1,300 nit peak brightness. For the players, instead of touch sensitive shoulder areas, you can flick the two switches on the right side and pop out physical shoulder buttons, which are so much better to use. The frame has been sculpted for decent comfort and the holographic finish on the back does look pretty cool. The device have build fingerprint sensors (side mounted) as the primary security with face unlock features support. Xiaomi tried to sweeten the pot by throwing in the fancy-schmancy 120W HyperCharge support. A 120W brick and a 6A USB-C cable are thoughtfully included in the box.

The Black Shark 4 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Octa-core processor and 8GB/12GB of RAM delivers outstanding overall performance for opening and running applications, flipping through menus, running home screens, and more.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 4 is equipped stock ROMs with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 with 8GB/12GB of RAM, and best-in-class thermal design. Xiaomi should have stopped there because Shark Chan has a few other features that are just plain off-putting.
Xiaomi’s gaming partner has told us about the autonomy of the Black Shark 4. Specifically, this new smartphone will have a total of 4,500mAh , a capacity perhaps somewhat reduced for a terminal of this type. The Black Shark 4 runs on Joy UI 12.5, which looked and felt a little close to stock Android with some gaming aesthetics intergrated into the design. It could be that it uses a split charging system similar to the Lenovo phone which charges from two ports simultaneously. All you have to do is wait for the background update process to finish. You can also remove the case if you have installed any; doing so will help your phone dissipate heat better. When you update an Android Smartphone, you see the usual installation process, then the phone restarts, and it looks like the update is complete, but it isn’t.
You get the plug in the box and you can juice this phone back up to 100% in just 18 minutes in my testing. For a laugh, I also compared this with the OnePlus 10 Pro’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (3,682 multi-core) and at the moment, the 4 Pro is beating this. As for headphones, the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack means you can enjoy lag-free audio. Looking at the numbers, the 4 Pro measures in at 6.5 x 3 x 0.4 inches with a weight of 7.8 ounces.
