Both models are designed to meet the needs of gamers. That’s why they come with a bold design, the best specs, and even a liquid cooling system to keep their performance always at its best.
The Xiaomi Black Shark 4S are visually more daring
Xiaomi didn’t just improve the internals of its new gaming smartphones. The exterior of the Black Shark 4S was also revised, now even bolder than its predecessors.
Any resemblance to the Asus ROG Phone is no coincidence, as this product range is the main rival to the Black Shark line. The new models even have a green LED on the back that will serve as both props and LED notifications in case of need.
On the side of the Black Shark 4S are the usual triggers for this product line. They will be of great help for players to perform some commands more quickly.
