According to recent information, Chinese company Tencent Games is planning to buy Xiaomi’s Black Shark division for the equivalent of just over $470 million. For those who don’t know, the Black Shark brand is mainly known for its high-performance smartphones aimed at gamers.
The information was originally published on twitter per Abhishek Yadav and for now we still don’t have more details or an official announcement. If the acquisition is confirmed, it shouldn’t be long before Tencent enters the smartphone market for gamers with their own devices. Additionally, the acquisition could help expand the brand to more markets around the world.
It is worth remembering that the Chinese company already has partnerships with other smartphone manufacturers for gamers such as ASUS with its ROG Phone line and Nubia with its Red Magic line and at the moment we have no way of knowing what will happen with these partnerships if the acquisition is confirmed. .
The Black Shark line of smartphones is well known by gamers and enthusiasts. Last October the brand launched the Black Shark 4S and Black Shark 4S Pro models. The Black Shark 4S comes equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip, 8GB/12GB of RAM, 128GB/256GB of storage based on the UFS (Universal Flash Storage ) 3.1, 4,500mAh battery with 120W fast charging and 6.67-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution, up to 144Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sampling rate.
