Need the gaming phone fast?
While Xiaomi announced the Black Shark gaming smartphone a few weeks ago, it’ll take a while before it’s officially offered in the Philippines (if at all) by the Chinese brand. If you’re aching to get your hands on the device though, you have another option via Widget City, who is now offering pre-orders for the gaming phone on their website.

Take note that pricing via Widget City is quite different from the local, quoted price in China, with the 6GB/64GB version retailing at Php 31,000. The 8GB/128GB variant is more expensive at Php 36,000. For reference, China pricing for the phone is RMB 2999 (Php 24.9K) for the 6GB/64GB variant and RMB 3499 (Php 29K) for the 8GB/128GB variant.
