November 2017, Razer phone started the gaming smartphone trend. Following this footstep, Xiaomi launched its very own gaming smartphone “Black Shark” last week with amazing features, one of which I still keep pondering about is the liquid cooling system integrated into this monster device, it’s not something we see every day on smartphones but gaming pcs. And just when I thought that was it, Nubia Red Magic came in with another cool feature adopted from gaming pc builds, a RGB lighting carved into the back of Red Magic’s hexagonal body.

Nubia, which was once a wholly owned subsidiary of China’s ZTE; now it owns 49.9% of the company unveiled Red Magic. Nubia Red Magic is a gaming smartphone. We all know very well that the smartphone makers are trying to sell more expensive smartphones in a market where profits are dominated by the tech giant Apple and the South Korean giant Samsung. Hence, One trend others are simply following is the “Gaming Smartphone”, yes, Nubia’s gaming smartphone offers monstrous specs for just $399.
The new Nubia Red Magic does the same, and its main highlight is the LED lights at the rear. That’s what we wanted, right?
Yes, for the first time, we will have a range of lights on the back of the smartphone that can generate up to 16 million colours and 4 different illumination effects.
Inside, the device it has a Snapdragon 835 processor (even the Razer Phone), 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 128GB of storage without microSD support.
There is an air convection cooling system, consisting of three layers of graphite and three openings at the rear. In addition, the aluminium body is coated with materials that absorb heat.
Red Magic runs Android 8.1 Oreo with some customizations. GameBoost, for example, takes other apps out of memory “to provide higher frame rates.”
The 5.99-inch screen has Full-HD+ (1080 x 2160 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio, but it escapes the “notch” trend.
