After months of wait, Nubia’s Red Magic 3 gaming smartphone has finally launched in India today. The smartphone was earlier launched in China in April this year, so we already knew what to expect from it, but the new announcements at today’s event were the India pricing and availability. Although the gaming smartphone category in India is currently a niche segment, companies are gradually moving towards that segment. Earlier this year, we saw the launch of Xiaomi’s Black Shark 2 in India and last year, Asus launched its ROG Phone in the country.
A key highlight of the handset is that it is powered by the most powerful processor that is available – Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. Besides this, the device has up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro, the new offering from Nubia also comes with a 90Hz AMOLED display. The company has also said that the device is the world’s first smartphone to come with a centrifugal fan for a better thermal management. Here’s a look at the price details and the specifications of the Nubia Red Magic 3 smartphone:
