Black Shark, Meizu, OnePlus, and Realme have allegedly joined a P2P file transfer alliance that was formed last year by Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo. They revealed this information on their official Weibo accounts on Thursday. For those who don’t know what a P2P file transfer alliance is, it is similar to Apple’s AirDrop and Samsung’s Quick Share features. It allows you to share files between various devices wirelessly.
The Chinese tech giants Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi established this new file transfer alliance last year. Earlier on Xiaomi devices, it was available as Mi Share and Oppo Share on Oppo devices. Moreover, the wireless file transfer system uses Bluetooth for fast pairing and WiFi P2P connectivity for transferring data with an average speed of 20MB per second. Also, it does not halt the current WiFi connections, allowing users to access the internet via WiFi while their data is transferring using the proprietary protocol.
In a recent Black Shark press release, it was heard that the new file transfer protocol is also placed into JoyUI 11 as Mi Share. It means that the file transfer technology is already present on the Black Shark 2 and Black Shark 2 Pro, as they are currently running on JoyUI 11.
