Today Nubia started pre-orders for the Red Magic 3 gaming smartphone and they have a really good offer for the next 40 hours. Anyone that orders the device will receive the pro-kit for free. Unlike for the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 offer, the pro-kit has a lot more items. It will include the N30 Pro Bluetooth Gamepad, a Red Magic USB Type-C cable, a Tronsmart Edge 10000mAh Power Bank as well as Red Magic Noobz Earphones. Quite impressive, considering the specs of the Red Magic 3 and the price it is being sold at: €479 (or $479, depending on the region you are)
The Red Magic 3 comes with the latest Snapdragon 855 CPU that is actively cooled using an internal fan. The version that is currently available for sale has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The 6.65″ AMOLED screen supports HDR and has a 90Hz refresh rate, similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro. Even though it is an AMOLED screen, Nubia opted to offer a traditional fingerprint reader on the back of the device.
Being a gaming smartphone, the Red Magic 3 comes with some gaming features. The right side of the device has side capacitive buttons that can be mapped to on-screen actions, a gaming-mode that keeps the CPU at high frequencies and stereo speakers with DTS:X. A gaming hub application is also pre-installed, similar to Shark-Space on the Black Shark 2. Also, the Red Magic 3 has a futuristic design, with sharp edges, hexagonal patterns on the back and an RGB light strip. It will surely attract a few eyes when on display.
A more detailed comparison between the Red Magic 3 and Black Shark 2 will be available soon, but considering the specs and the price, looks like Nubia has a winner here. Interested in the device? Hurry up and buy it right now from the official store because the pre-order bonus with the included accessories is only available for the next two days.
