Days after Xiaomi-backed Black Shark launched the Black Shark 2 in India, ZTE offshoot Nubia is set to launch its own rival gaming phone, aka the Red Magic 3 in India – on June 17 to be precise. Nubia will launch the Red Magic 3 in India on June 17, and the gaming phone will be available for buying from online retail website Flipkart.
The Nubia Red Magic 3 has a 6.65-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch refresh rate – there’s no notch or display cutout on this one. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 processor with up to 12GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. The Red Magic 3 also comes with stereo speakers and 4D customizable vibrations for enhanced gaming audio experiences.
There’s also ICE liquid cooling as well as an actual fan – a first for any smartphone – inside the Red Magic 3 which is claimed to lower the phone’s temperature by up to16 degrees Celsius for seemingly longer gaming sessions.
The Red Magic 3 also has a massive 5,000mAh battery with 27W fast charging support.
The Red Magic 3 has a single camera on the rear – which is a 48MP (Sony IMX586) sensor with f/1.7 aperture. On the front, the Red Magic 3 has a 16MP camera.
The Red Magic 3 sells in China in four configurations - 6GB/64GB for CNY 2,899 (roughly Rs 30,000), 6GB/128GB for CNY 3,199 (roughly Rs 33,000), 8GB/128GB for CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs 36,000), and 12GB/256GB for CNY 4,299 (roughly Rs 44,500). It would be interesting to see how Nubia prices the Red Magic 3 in India.
For some perspective, Black Shark has launched the Black Shark 2 in India at a starting price of Rs 39,999 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage while the top-end variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage costs Rs 49,999 in India.
