Xiaomi Black Shark 3 will not take too long to be launched, patents leaked

Published

Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 gaming smartphones a little while ago and it is surprising to see that the company is already in works to launch its successor, the Xiaomi Black Shark 3.

If the report from Letsgodigital has to be believed, the company has already filed the patent for the same.

After the Black Shark Helo, which was launched in October last year, this is already the third gaming smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer. It looks like it won’t be the last model in the series either because Xiaomi has recently patented a series of new gaming models.

The design patent was applied for by Xiaomi in December 2018 at the Global Design Database of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) and was published on 19 March 2019. No fewer than 48 sketches have been added.

A design patent is always very brief in terms of information, it is about the design that is recorded. It is therefore remarkable that Xaomi has stated in the description: ‘the name of this design product: mobile phone (Sky)’. It is possible that the name Sky refers here to the model name of the mobile gaming device. Finally, the name Black Shark Sky is very much in line with Black Shark Helo.

In total, the patent shows eight different models. We follow them one by one. The first model is a kind of combination of the models that have already been introduced. The front is reminiscent of the original Black Shark, this device was equipped with a physical home button. On the back, however, we see a double camera that is positioned vertically apart, similar to the Black Shark 2.

Xiaomi has patented another variant of this model, which has an extra camera at the rear. Based on the size of the lens, this could be a ToF camera, meant for 3D photography and AR applications, such as AR gaming. A ToF 3D camera seems to be becoming increasingly popular. Last year the Oppo RX17 Pro was introduced with a ToF camera. The Honor View 20 and the LG G8 ThinQ, introduced earlier this year, also have a ToF 3D camera.

Next, we see two models with a small notch. It is again the back that differs from each other. One model shows a dual camera, the other variant shows a triple camera. Xiaomi also had two phone designs recorded with a wide notch, in which the receiver is placed in addition to the selfie camera. Finally, we see two models that are very similar to the recently launched Black Shark 2. A variant with two and three cameras is also patented for this model.

As of now, this is all we know about the device.
