Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Helo – The 10GB RAM Gaming Smartphone!

– What’s up guys? Saf here on SuperSaf TV! This smartphone here has
up to 10 gigabytes of RAM. Ten Gigabytes! Like, really, 10 gigabytes! What is happening to the world? Of course it is the
Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Helo. I think that’s the official name. Or it might just be Black Shark Helo. But it’s the second version. I didn’t actually check
out the first version. So this is going to be
a new experience to me. It seems like a really
interesting gaming device. Let’s have a look at it. So first up looking at the box we’ve got this Shark Logo here. Black Shark on the left
and right hand side. Let’s open it up. You’re gamer. Let’s Shark. So we’ve got a bit of
an into card in here. There’s the device with this sticker on. With some of the stuff on it. Let’s just take that off straight away. Ooh! Fancy! Looks like we’ve got a
combination of metal and glass. We’ll leave that to the side for a second. See what else we get inside the box. So here’s everything
we get inside the box. There’s some paperwork. There’s a USB type A to USB type C cable. There’s a power brick which
does support fast charging. And then we have a 3.5 mm
to USB type C converter. And that is because the Black Shark 2 does not have a 3.5 mm jack. There’s a SIM card ejector tool. And then we’ve got this sort of joy pad which we can use with the
device for gaming of course. Now this version here comes with one. But if you do go for the absolute master with the full 10 GB RAM
then it’s also going to come with a right hand joy stick too. So you can have two joy
sticks on either side. And you can attach those to
the device using this case. And within the case pack
you do get some stickers as well as a glass screen protector. Now here’s the case where you
can kind of of attach this onto. But it’s going to be
connecting via Bluetooth to the actual device. Of course the other version does come with the right hand side one as well. Which will be pretty cool. I’m not sure how comfortable this will be with just one joy pad
on the left hand side. Now let’s have a look
at the device itself. It feels quite premium. We’ve got a combination
of metal and glass. It’s got this sort of nice pattern here with the back on the glass. Which does look pretty slick. And we’ve got loads of
green highlights everywhere. Now up front we do have a
six inch AMOLED display. I believe the pervious
version was an LCD display. It looks pretty decent. Blacks are pretty deep. We’ve got this black theme. So it’s actually quite
difficult to see the bezels. We do have top and bottom bezels. But we don’t have a notch. So that might be something
that you’re into. The left and right bezels are not too bad. It’s got a full HD plus resolution. First impressions, it looks pretty decent, colors are vibrant and viewing angles are not too bad either. Now looking around the
device the first thing you’ll probably notice is the fact that we’ve got dual front-firing speakers. So there’s one along the top
and one along the bottom. So of course that’s very
important to gaming. There is a front facing camera. This is 20 megapixels
with an F 1.75 aperture. Now if you move on to the back, we do have the S logo which lights up. So it currently it’s green. And you can change this
quite easily in the settings. So you’ve got yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, a darker blue and also a sky blue. Above the logo is a fingerprint scanner which seems to work okay. Yep. Not too bad. There’s a dual camera set up. The primary camera is 20 megapixels. A secondary camera is 12 megapixels. The primary camera has an F 1.75 aperture. We’ll see how the cameras are. I’ll take a few pictures. I’m not kind of of
expecting anything crazy. At the top there’s just
a mic and on the bottom there is a USB type C input. But things do get interesting on the left and right hand sides. In the middle we have
these RGB light panels which you can customize in the settings. So for boot up, incoming
calls, notifications et cetera. They do look pretty slick. Now above the light panels
on the right hand side you do have a power button
and a volume rocker. On the left hand side
above the light panel there’s a SIM card tray. But then we also have this Shark key. So this is actually a
physical hardware key which we can slide up and that’s
going to activate Shark mode. What Shark mode basically does as you can see here is it’s going to close down
all current applications and it’s going to dedicate
everything to gaming. So of course it has been
designed with gamers in mind and that’s reflected in the specs as well. It does have the Qualcomm
Snapdragon 845 processor with up to 10 gigabytes of RAM. So the base version in going
to have six gigabytes of RAM but you can get up to 10. It also has two liquid
cooling partitions inside so that should keep your device cool during long gaming sessions. And it’s also got a pretty
large four thousand Mh battery. A size which you would probably expect for a gaming device. And things are really heating up in the gaming smart phone space. We’ve got the ROG phone. We’ve also got the RAZER Phone 2. What do you guys think of
