Black Shark smartphones will have a notch and ToF camera shows a Patent

Just last week, Black Shark released a new gaming smartphone named the Black Shark 2. It is its third gaming cameraphone because it entered into the smartphone manufacturing business last year. Presently, patent diagrams of which could be its upcoming cameraphone have surfaced online and they tell some massive changes coming to the Black Shark line.

The design patent was filed back in December 2018 by Xiaomi at the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) before it was published last week.

Black Shark phones will have a notch and ToF camera

All the Black Shark gaming phones introduced till date do not have a notch but the Black Shark 3 or whatever the next one is called might have one as claimed by to the diagrams. One of them has a waterdrop notch and there is an additional with a wider notch. Due to the fact there is a notch, the bezels have been shaved off.

The Black Shark gaming smartphones support external controllers that are attached to the sides of the cameraphone, so you shouldn’t have to worry about your hands covering the screen although playing.

Another new feature the next cameraphone might have is triple rear cameras. The third digital camera is said to be a ToF sensor for 3D object scanning, AR, and 3D photography. Since this is a gaming phone, we won’t be surprised if game developers release 3D objects that could be purchased and scanned to be used in their games.

For example, you can purchase a figurine for a fresh character or weapon and all you have to do is do a 3D scan with the digital camera what then adds the character or weapon to your profile. So you have a new character/weapon to use in the game and moreover a figurine which could be part of a collection.

There are moreover diagrams revealing the smartphone with two digital cameras. So don’t be surprised if Xiaomi doesn’t include the ToF Scanner still.

The patent displays the product is named “Sky”. We are not Certainly if that is a codename or maybe it is the marketing name. But seeing as the model that introduced after the original Black Shark is called Helo, we won’t be surprised if the upcoming model isn’t a Black Shark 3 however the Black Shark Sky.
