Some rumors from the past couple of months suggest that Xiaomi"s gaming arm, Black Shark, is having a hard time with employees and it"s struggling to produce products. However, reports regarding the supposedly upcoming Black Shark 6 haven"t slowed down. In fact, most of the specs leaked in late February.

The most recent leak comes from a second-hand Chinese marketplace called Youxianyu as someone is selling an early prototype of what appears to be Black Shark 6. The price tag is CNY 3,900 ($560), but that"s obviously not the final price of the phone.

The prototype shows a brand new camera island design and it would likely come with a leather back version too. The listing also mentions a 12GB/512GB memory configuration, dated 64MP Sony IMX686 main camera and support for 120W fast wired charging. Previous reports also point to Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC and 5,000 mAh battery.
