ZTE/Nubia has revealed on their official Weibo page that the next iteration in the Red Magic lineup will be launched this month. To be more precise, the Red Magic 3 is set to be revealed on the 28th of April. Sadly, no actual information regarding specs or special features are offered and no hint related to the design either.
For those that do not know, Red Magic is Nubia’s gaming-oriented smartphone lineup. The smartphones have a futuristic design, RGB lights, and some gaming oriented features. The current model, the Nubia Red Magic Mars, comes with the Snapdragon 845, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and vapor heatsink that promises cooler components during extended gaming sessions. Sadly, it comes with an LCD screen, even though other similar devices have an OLED one. The specs are not bad, especially considering that it is being sold for just €399, wey bellow what Xiaomi is asking for the Black Shark 2.
We are expecting that the new Red Magic to come with the Snapdragon 855, at least 8GB of RAM and hopefully they will include an OLED screen this time as well. An updated design is also expected and I personally hope that a better controller will be available as well. The price will probably go up. Still, it is better to see some competition in this market. I will keep you posted once more information is available, but in the meantime, if you want to order the Nubia Red Magic Mars, you can do it at their official website.
