Gaming Mobilephone "Black Shark 2"launches JAPAN model

Gaming Mobilephone

TAKUMI JAPAN Co., Ltd, a company that manufactures and sells IoT/AI devices, smartphones, and other communication devices, started by former FreeTel President Kaoru Masuda, has begun handling the "Black Shark 2 (Japan model)", a gaming smartphone manufactured by Black Shark, a company in which Xiaomi, a Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer, has an equity stake. Black Shark 2 (Japan model)" by Black Shark, a gaming smartphone manufactured by Black Shark, a company owned by Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer Xiaomi.

It is a well-known story that FREETEL's operating company Plus One Marketing, Inc. went bankrupt in 2017 (total debt: approximately 2.6 billion JPY), and its founder and representative director Kaoru Masuda also went bankrupt, but less than two years later, the company became an authorized distributor of the "Black Shark 2" in Japan and started selling the low-priced JAPAN model. However, he became an authorized distributor of "Black Shark 2" in Japan in less than two years, and introduced a low-priced Japan model, which is just like a black shark.

Special Specifications for Japan (low specs)

"Black Shark 2" was released in Japan in June 2019 and is a high-end spec gaming smartphone with 12GB RAM and 256GB ROM.
Because of its high-end specs, it was also expensive, costing about 110,000 yen, and many people found it difficult to purchase on a budget.
The "Black Shark 2 (Japan model)", which is now available in Japan, has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM, and is priced at 49,800 JPY (excluding tax), a much lower price.

In other countries, 8GB RAM is the minimum spec.

In Europe and other regions, the minimum spec is 8GB RAM, and in Asia, the minimum spec is 8GB RAM, and only India was confirmed to be handling 6GB.

The 6GB RAM is a low-priced version made for the Japanese market.

Is this an entry-level model made only for Japan because it is so expensive?

Considering that the price for Europe is 649,00 EUR (about 77,000 JPY) with 12GB RAM and 256GB ROM, you can get the highest-end model if you pay 20,000 JPY more... However, the highest-end model in Japan is about 110,000 JPY, about 30,000 JPY higher than other countries due to band optimization and technical compliance acquisition.

Since the price in Japan is considerably higher than in other countries, it may mean that they have introduced a low-priced version with lower specs for the Japanese market...

We would like to see a lower price point for the handset as Freetel did, but since it is not their own product, it seems difficult to do so.

Specs other than RAM & ROM are the same as the flagship model

Except for RAM and ROM, the specifications are the same as those of the "Black Shark 2".
