This isn’t our first look at the Nubia Red Magic gaming phone but you’ll agree the device comes with a design that is just so good looking. It is a bit disappointing that the Nubia Red Magic gaming phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 835 chipset which already has a successor in the more efficient Snapdragon 845. Other than that, the Red Magic has a magical touch on the design aspect which is indicative that Nubia deserves some accolades for this one.
The Nubia Red Magic gaming smartphone features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with an edge-to-edge 2.5D NEG T2X-1 screen, 18:9 aspect ratio and 1500:1 contrast ratio. The smartphone body is made from aluminium with an ergonomic design that is friendly for prolonged gameplay. The body design is crafted using advanced thermal modelling techniques.
On the internal design, the device is also touted to be the first smartphone to use an all-new air convection cooling system. The cooling system is designed in a way that it dissipates heat effectively across its diamond-cut design without compromising on performance. To make it stand out from the competition, the phone is branded with a distinctive RGB LED strip. Other features of the Red Magic gaming phone includes an 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, DTS Technology and Smart Amplifier system for an immersive sound experience. There is also a 6GB RAM + 64GB storage version. In addition, the smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box and is powered by a 3,800mAh battery which can provide up to 7 hours of gameplay on a single charge.
The Nubia Red Magic Phone will be exclusively available through Indiegogo for an early-bird price of $399 starting from 23rd April. Do check out some more unboxing photos of the Nubia Gaming Phone below.
