ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia recently announced its new gaming wing and was reported to launch a gaming smartphone under the new brand later this year. Today, the company has officially announced that it is holding a press conference on 19th April to launch its first gaming smartphone under its new gaming brand — Nubia Red Devil.
Talking about the gaming smartphone, the company had previously said that it has included “all possible specs under the microscope.” It also said that it is prepping up to debut a new of line of products that will “provide a more complete gaming experience for the masses.”
The gaming smartphone is expected to come equipped with features like air cooling, near black body, carbon nano-material, and a three-dimensional wind tunnel section structure. Rumors suggest that the smartphone could be powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 along with 8GB RAM.
The device is also expected to feature 18:9 aspect ratio display with 120Hz refresh rate — similar to the Razer Phone that was launched last year. Nubia had showcased its prototype at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 earlier this year in February.
Nubia CEO Ni Fei has already confirmed that the gaming phone will be launched simultaneously in China and Europe. With the gaming phone, Nubia aims to expand its international presence. After the phone’s debut in China and Europe, the phone will also make its way to the Indian market.
Apart from Nubia, Xiaomi-backed Black Shark is also launching a gaming smartphone tomorrow, i.e. 13th April. Several reports suggest that the phone will be available in three memory configurations — 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage, 8GB RAM with 128GB onboard storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage. It has been confirmed that the Black Shark smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset.
