There is a new trend in the smartphone market and not only there. A few vendors have designed and launched game smartphones. Among them, we can mention the Xiaomi Black Shark, the ASUS Rog Game Phone, and of course, the Nubia Red Magic. But if the former two models are packed with the Snapdragon 845 flagship chip, the latter sports the previous-gen Snapdragon 835. Many have been thinking it’s not enough for smooth game performance. However, we have reviewed it and found out the Red Dev doesn’t yield its competitors when it comes to gaming. As for now, this amazing handset is offered at $359.99, which is a great offer if taking into account what selling points it comes with. You can get acquainted with them below.
The front side of the Nubia Red Magic game smartphone doesn’t differ from the mainstream models much. It sports a 6-inch 1080P resolution a notch-less full-screen. Unlike the iPhone X – like handsets, it has both forehead and chin.
However, the back is what makes it differ from the rest of smartphones. The Nubia Red Magic uses the X style back panel, using the diamond cutting technology. It uses a 6-series aviation aluminum alloy material, just like a space warship. The red holes in the four corners of the fuselage are the grills for air ventilation and for the speaker. In order to deal with heat dissipation, the phone has added three wind troughs to increase air exchange by 73%. At the same time, this is the first time in the smartphones market to use the internal and external air convection cooling system. Inside the phone, the Red Magic uses a three-layer graphite fit. It is designed to fully utilize heat dissipation. There is also a 16.8 million color RGB strip. When you start the game, watch movies, and listen to music, you will be prompted to flash. Especially when playing games or listening to music, you can change the lighting effect with the sound effect. It looks amazing.
As for the internals, the Nubia Red Magic is packed with a Snapdragon 835 chip, which runs on a 10nm process node. It has an excellent power control and maintains stable performance. The SoC is also paired with a 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. There is a 3800mAh battery under the hood. Due to the 17.5W fast charging support, it takes 110 minutes to fully charge the phone.
Finally, the Nubia Red Magic comes with a 24MP single camera on the back, which supports the NeoVision 7.0 technology. It helps the phone in taking better photos when there is no sufficient light. The handset is also equipped with an 8MP front shooter, which supports beauty.
