Xiaomi’s sub-brand Black Shark has launched a few gaming smartphones in the past few years. These gaming smartphones were equipped with features that support gaming experience. All these smartphones were equipped with the flagship SoC from Qualcomm each year. Although these gaming smartphones were by far the least expensive gaming phones as compared to other gaming devices by competitors, these were still in expensive range.

This is about to change as it has been revealed by the Redmi General Manager that the company will launch a gaming device with flagship features and performance soon. It was also tipped that the smartphone will be powered by the recently launched MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. Moreover, it was promised that this gaming smartphone will be targeted at a wider range of audience thus affordable prices will be set for this series of gaming smartphones from Redmi.

This could be a mega strategy from Xiaomi, as Black Shark will soon launch a flagship gaming smartphone with Snapdragon 888 SoC. The price of currently available Black Shark 3 is around $600 and the newest version will be priced at in the same range. The Black Shark 4 (presumed name) will carry a $600 price with Snapdragon 888 SoC, and the Redmi gaming smartphone could carry a price of sub $500 or $450, with Dimensity 1200 SoC.

This strategy could allow Xiaomi to target smartphone gaming audiences in the range of $450-$600. The price at launch could even be less than the stated price above, as it was commented by the General Manager of Redmi, that;

“ the phone will be launched at a price that cannot be refused”.

As Black Shark and Redmi are sub-brands of Xiaomi, they could share some features both hardware and software-wise. It can be presumed that both smartphones will share a common R&D team.

Gaming smartphones are really expensive and it is still a niche market. Lets see if Redmi can spice up things in this segment of the smartphone market.
