The ZTE owned brand Nubia is going to launch its next gaming smartphone namely Red Magic 3 in the mid-June. The smartphone has already been unveiled in China in the month of April this year. The Nubia Red Magic 3 was expected to launch in this month itself but it is not clearly known whether the company has changed the date or it was just a rumour. But this time, the launch has been confirmed by the company itself.
Coming to the performance terms, Nubia Red Magic 3 is surely going to be an improved version of the previously launched Red Magic, which was also a gaming device launched last year. However, it resembles the designing pattern of its predecessor, which includes a hexagon shaped rear-mounted fingerprint scanner over the geeked out panel. At the front, it features a full HD+ panel (1,080 x 2,340 pixels) alongside HDR AMOLED display. The screen stands 6.65-inch tall and bears slight bezels on top. In terms of optics, it is equipped with a 48MP rear camera having f/1.7 aperture along with a 16MP front shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
Red Magic 3 features liquid cooling technology that will provide retained temperature during prolonged games and multimedia consumption. The processor is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, which is paired with a 12GB RAM and up to 256GB internal storage onboard. Acting as a power provider, the device carries a 5,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging technology, which is claimed to provide an hour of gaming with just 10-minutes of charging.
The smartphone is said to appear in two colour variants – Black and Red. However, Nubia did not mention the pricing of the device for the Indian market, so one can presume the budget based on the Chinese market. In China, the device has been listed with a minimum price-tag of CNY 2,899 (Rs. 30,000 approx.) for the 6GB + 64GB configuration. The 6GB + 128GB retails at CNY 3,199 (Rs. 33,200 approx.), 8GB + 128GB at CNY 3,499 (Rs. 36,300 approx.) and 12GB + 256GB at CNY 4,299 (Rs. 44,600 approx.). Hence, we can expect the 12GB RAM variant at the budget of around Rs. 45,000.
In one of the statements, the company has said, “With an aim to deliver the most complete gaming experience on mobile, Red Magic 3 has a ground-breaking and innovative design, sleek, and fully optimised software. Red Magic 3 has impressive specifications and state-of-the-art technology.”
