Xiaomi's Black Shark phones, along with the Lenovo Legion Series, Asus ROG and ZTE Red Magic, are prominent members of the gaming family of handsets that, apart from hardware optimizations to perform the most complex and heavy graphical intervals with special features such as cooling and cooling. Controls are also equipped. Xiaomi unveiled the Hadid Black Shark 4 and Black Shark 4 Pro in late March of this year, and now on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 (October 21, 1400) the new generation of these two models with the names Black Shark 4S and Black Shark 4S Pro is on display. The main changes of these two models lie in their design.
Both the Black Shark 4S and 4S Pro models (excluding processor upgrades in the more advanced model) offer almost no major and defining differences in internal specifications and hardware And they should be considered almost the same as the previous models with a new design. The key elements in the design of these two models are, of course, similar to the previous ones, at the top of which we should mention the row of horizontal cameras enclosed in a hexagon. The game buttons called shoulder keys on the right edge and the shape of the screen with the central punch selfie camera have also remained unchanged. The main difference is the design of the body on the back, which now moves away from the X-shape like before and sees an S in the center and the Black Shark inscription vertically on the left side.
This form is almost identical in both phones But in the 4S Pro, more details have been added to it, and a green neon LED light also illuminates when playing the game as a symbol of the user being busy in this area. The dimensions of the two phones are a few hundredths of a millimeter in length and width compared to the previous generation, reaching 163.69 and 76.21 mm (compared to 163.83 and 76.35 mm in the Black Shark 4 and 4 Pro), respectively, but their 9.9 mm thickness has not changed. The 4S weighs 210 grams, the 4S Pro weighs 10 grams heavier than before and is 220 grams. The colors intended for both of these handsets are white and black, although there are slight differences in their ranges.
In addition to the regular version, the Black Shark 4S is now offered in a special Gundam Edition, which is actually a franchise Popular Japanese media.
Samsung E4 6.67-inch screen The two phones are apparently the same as the previous model with a resolution of 1080 2400 pixels, which supports a refresh rate of 144 Hz and a stunning touch of 720 Hz, and with 111% coverage of The DCI-P3 color gamut also has a lot to say about color accuracy. The maximum brightness of the points of this panel is announced as 1,300nits and it is also possible to feel the pressure.
The quality of the camera is usually not very important in a gaming phone, and the new Black Shark flagships naturally follow the same rule. At the top of the screen of both phones is a 20-megapixel self-focusing selfie camera, whose 0.8-micron pixels combine into four cells to form a larger 1.6-micron pixel that allows better images to be captured on paper in low light resolution. It will have 5 megapixels. The aperture of the 5-stage lens in front of this sensor is f/2.0 at Black Shark 4S and slightly narrower at 4S Pro at f/2.45. This situation was exactly the same in the Black Shark 4 and 4 Pro.
This story is no different for the cameras on the back of the device, and apparently the same set has been transferred to the new models without change; The Black Shark 4S uses a 48-megapixel camera with f/1.79 as the main camera, and the 4S Pro has a 64-megapixel f/1.79 camera. The other two cameras in this section are similar between the two phones and of course their previous generations, and include an 8-megapixel ultraviolet with f/2.2 aperture and 120-degree field of view (without autofocus) and a 5-megapixel macro with f/2.4 and support It is the autofocus with which you can shoot from a distance of 2 to 10 cm of the subject.
Black Shark 4S has not changed its processing processor and still uses the same 7nm Snapdragom 870 chipset with a 3.2 GHz core and three cores The 2.42 GHz Cortex-A77 uses the highest level and four 1.8 GHz A55 cores at the lowest level. Graphics processing in this processor is also responsible for Adreno 650.
on the other hand in Black Shark 4S Pro but we are facing a significant change; Where the former Snapdragon 888 chipset has been replaced by Snapdragon 888 +, which is currently the most powerful mobile processor in the Android world. The Cortex-X1 single-core frequency of this chipset has reached close to 3.1 GHz, but its three 2.42 GHz Arm Cortex-A78 cores and 4 1.8 GHz A55 cores remain unchanged from the SD888, and the graphics are the same as the previous Adreno 660. SD888 Plus is also very successful in the field of artificial intelligence and has increased its power from 26 trillion operations per second (in the non-Plus version) to 32TOPS.
Internal cooling system is one of the constant requirements of gaming phones and 4S and 4S Pro, of course, is no exception. In the structure of these two models, according to the manufacturer, two liquid cooling units and several alloys are used for direct contact with the heat generating parts, which reduces heat loss by up to 30% and CPU temperature by up to 18 degrees (both compared to Black Shark 3). . P>
Black Shark 4S uses 8 or 12 GB of RAM, but in 4S Pro the user is more open, and in addition to 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 16 GB of RAM can be available as before. The RAM of both models is LPDDR5, but their frequency is different as before, reaching 5,500MHz on the 4S and 6,400MHz on the 4S Pro. Another notable similarity in this section belongs to the internal memory of these two models, which in the cheaper version is 128 or 256 GB, and in the Pro version, it is 256 or 512 GB. This type of memory is UFS 3.1 in both cases, but in the Pro version, it is customized using a RAID system consisting of SSD, and UFS 3.1 flash memory offers up to 55% faster data reading and up to 69% faster data writing than normal. .
4S Pro naturally has a higher price and version The 12GB/256GB base will cost 4,799 yuan ($ 746) and the more advanced 16GB/512GB version will cost 5,499 yuan ($ 854).
