We have been getting important rumors surrounding Xiaomi and its Black Shark mobile gaming division. The latest rumors suggest that the company could be in talks to sell the Black Shark segment to Tencent in an operation that could reach the $470 million mark. Whatever the case, Xiaomi is still working on the new iteration of its gaming phone. The latest information from Panda is bald reveals important details of what we may get inside the Black Shark 5.
