aming smartphones have been picking up pace in the Indian market lately and companies are cashing in on the opportunity. After the BlackShark 2, Nubia is set to bring the Red Magic 3 to the Indian shores soon. The company has even disclosed its launch date – it’s coming on June 17. This makes it the fourth flagship-grade smartphone equipped with the Snapdragon 855 to launch this summer, after the OnePlus 7 series, Oppo Reno and BlackShark 2.
The Red Magic 3 has been in news for a while now. Last week, AnTuTu claimed that the Red Magic 3 led its benchmark tests with the highest scores, beating all other flagship smartphones by some margin. And that only justifies the credentials of this gaming smartphone. Because when you look at the spec sheet of the Red Magic 3, it comes across as nothing less than beastly.
All gaming and flagship phones come with the Snapdragon 855 chipset but Nubia uses custom cooling solutions to sustain higher peak performance than its rivals. The Red Magic 3 is probably the first smartphone to use a combination of liquid cooling technology as well as a fan-based cooling system. Therefore, like a gaming laptop, you have actual heat vents. The phone also sports an RGB LED light at the back like its predecessor.
That’s not the only gaming device highlight the Red Magic 3 boasts. Like the OnePlus 7 Pro, it sports a 90Hz OLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The phone uses a fairly stock version of Android 9 Pie with certain under-the-hood optimisations to ensure fast gaming performance. Plus, a massive 5000mAh battery should ensure longer backups during gaming sessions. If you like photography, Nubia has stuffed in a 48-megapixel Sony camera at the rear and a 16-megapixel camera at the front.
There’s no hint of the price yet but a recent report by 91 Mobiles suggests that Nubia could launch the 8GB RAM variant around Rs 36,999. This could make the Red Magic 3 great value over the OnePlus 7 if specifications matter more than anything else. It is even said that Nubia wants to go aggressive with its pricing which means we could see a possible price of around Rs 30,000 in India.
