Xiaomi Black Shark Helo announced with 10GB RAM

Xiaomi has announced its next-generation gaming smartphone called the Black Shark Helo.

The device sports nifty features akin to gaming smartphones — RGB lighting on the sides, front-facing stereo speakers, vapor cooling technology, HDR10-compliant display, real-time SDR to HDR conversion a la Nokia 7.1.


There’s also a new Gaming Studio feature that lets you tweak processor, display, touch, network, and others for the games you play. These Gaming studio configurations can be shared with other Blackshark users using ‘Shark Codes’. It’s also the first smartphone in the world to sport 10GB of RAM — that’s more than what a normal PC user has.
