Nubia has just announced the Red Magic, a smartphone aimed at gaming. Like the Xiaomi Black Shark, the Red Magic is designed with Gaming in mind, its shape is inspired by a battleship, while the configurable LED band impresses from the back of the terminal. It also has three slots for air circulation and several layers of graphite for rapid heat dissipation.
The Red Magic comes with a 6 "LTPS display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1080. The entire screen is covered by a piece of NEG Dinorex T2X-1 glass.
While the design and the LEDs are the highlights of the phone, the chipset that feeds the video games has the same importance. In the case of Nubia Red Magic is a Snapdragon 835 SoC with 6GB or 8GB of RAM, depending on the amount of storage you choose: 64GB or 128GB. It is not the latest Snapdragon model, and obviously it is inferior to the 845 chip that Black Shark brings, but it is more than enough for the 1080p screen.
In addition, it also has a performance mode button on one of the sides.
The Red Magic impresses with a 24MP rear camera with an aperture f / 1.7 with high-brightness lens and an 8MP front camera with an aperture f / 2.0 and a wide-angle lens.
The Nubia Red Magic comes with a large 3,800mAh battery with fast charge capacity. Other notable features include a fingerprint scanner located at the back of the terminal, and unfortunately, a single speaker. In addition, it supports DTS sound.
The Red Magic runs an own launcher based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Nubia Red Magic will be available from April 26 through IndieGogo at $ 399. In China you can order the phone from April 25 to $ 399 for the 6GB + 64GB version or $ 479 for the 8GB + 128GB version. The first orders could receive free T-shirts, backpacks among other things.
