Around two months ago, ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia was rumored to be working on a gaming smartphone. Newer leaks had claimed that Nubia would be building a new brand that would be exclusively releasing gaming products including its first gaming phone.

A new teaser has been released to mark its arrival. It seems that the Red Magic will be rivaling with Black Shark in China.
Talking on its first gaming phone that is expected to debut this month, Red Magic said that it has included “all possible specs under the microscope.” Through its upcoming gaming phone, the newly established firm hopes to bring casual and competitive gamers together.

Rumors have claimed that it could be fueled by Snapdragon 845 and 8 GB of RAM. It is also expected to feature 18:9 aspect ratio display with 120 Hz refresh rate.
