Yesterday, Nubia hosted the new product launch conference at the Shanghai VSPN e-sports Center. The theme of the event was ‘No Red Devil, No Live’. The Nubia Red Devil Mars smartphone was officially released, incorporating a variety of e-sports features, equipped with the Snapdragon 845 processor, 6-inch FHD + LCD screen, and a custom-made phantom battlesuit theme, and supporting 3D dual-speaker surround sound.
The back of the phone adopts a diamond-shaped wind groove. It also enhances the ventilation effect in addition to the attractive and three-dimensional look. Using the principle of temperature difference, the phone re-optimizes the layout and structure of the air duct inside the fuselage. As a result, the air exchange capacity is increased by 81%.
The rear panel also comes with 16.8 million color RGB lights, supporting six kinds of sky, iridescent, laser, rhythm, Aurora and interstellar light effects. You can also customize the frequency and brightness through the light effect editor.
The Nubia Red Devil Mars has dimensions of 158×75×9.5mm, at the same time, the thinnest part is 6.85mm. In general, the handset uses an all-metal body, with a 6-series aluminum alloy frame. The phone also has a special variant, namely the God of War. Its camouflage design concept is derived from the digital low-visual painting used by the world’s fifth-generation advanced fighters. Through the UV laser cold-engraving technology, it presents a perfect camouflage pattern, coupled with AF invisible painting, reducing fingerprint adsorption. Apart from this version, there are other color options, including ochre black, flame red, and God of War.
The phone also sports a 16MP camera, with a F/1.8 aperture and a NeoVision image engine that supports multi-focus, electronic aperture, multiple exposures, clone camera, and many other photography functions. There is an 8MP front-facing camera.
The Nubia Red Devil Mars supports 3D dual-speaker surround sound and is equipped with a combination of dual BOX+ dual Smart PA. It features a DTS 7.1 channel, which brings a more realistic and dynamic scene experience to help get immersed in the game. By combining hardware, algorithms, AI intelligence and many other technologies, the phone can achieve echo cancellation and smart noise reduction.
It is equipped with an independent 8V linear motor and a custom vibration control chip that can intelligently match more than 1000 kinds of force feedback and more than 400 kinds of game scenes. When shooting, braking, or experiencing blasting in a game, the phone will intelligently generate a sense of shock and simulate a real experience.
As for more ‘common’ features, the Nubia Red Devil Mars is packed with a 6-inch FHD+ LCD full-screen with a resolution of 2160×1080, a screen ratio of 84.86%, a brightness of 500nit, a contrast ratio of 1500:1, and a custom touch chip.
There are also two sensitive and fast border capacitive touch buttons, namely ‘Mars Trigger’. They can map the specific functions of the game, such as shooting, opening, jumping, etc.
Under the hood, the phone uses the most advanced Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor, paired with a 6/8/10GB LPDDR4X memory, a 64/128/256GB UFS storage, and a 3800mAh battery, supporting neoCHARGE low-temperature flash charging.
To maximize the performance, the Nubia Red Devil Mars can be said to achieve the ultimate in heat dissipation, coming with a copper tube liquid cooling. Three layers of graphite bond together, forming an ICE multi-dimensional cooling system. The heat dissipation area reaches 22000 square meters. It is said to reduce the CPU core temperature by 13.2 °C. The CPU cooling efficiency is increased by 25 times, and CPU performance by 70%.
