- Nubia Red Magic Mars has been announced and offers a Snapdragon 845 chipset and up to 10GB of RAM.
- Nubia's latest phone also sports capacitive shoulder keys for additional entry into play.
- The phone starts at ~ $ 389, all the way to ~ $ 575 for the 10GB model.
Nubia Red Magic was a response to Razer Phone, landing as part of a wake of gaming phones in 2018. Unfortunately, it still used last year's Snapdragon 835 chipset, which made a less powerful device than the competition.
Now, Nubia Red Magic Mars has been announced by the Chinese brand (h / t: Engadget ), and it has taken a big step in horsepower. Firstly, we have a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6 GB to 8 GB of RAM, and 64 GB to 128 GB of fixed storage. But the company has also revealed a high-end version with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of fixed storage.
It's not the only phone to pack 10GB of RAM, as we've already seen Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 offers so much memory. I'm not sure why you want so much RAM right now, but if anything makes it an eye-catching figure.
Nubia Red Magic Mars takes a side out of the ROG phone by offering shoulder triggers, but these are capacitive keys instead of ultrasound triggers. Nevertheless, they are a welcome addition to a game phone and should be useful when playing shooters and racing games. The company also offers an optional gamepad attachment (set above), with a layout similar to the left-hand Joy-Con controller on the Nintendo switch.
We also see several other game-focused features, such as a control panel to monitor system performance (such as CPU and GPU utilization, and temperature), DTS 7.1 support, and force feedback.
Other main features include a 6-inch shameless full HD + LCD display, a 3 800mAh battery, an 8MP f / 2.0 selfie camera, a 16MP f / 1.8 rear camera, a headphone jack and the Reddish OS based on Android Pie. And yes, it also packs an LED strip on the back.
Nubia Red Magic Mars has a starting price of 2,699 yuan (~ $ 389) for the 6GB / 64GB variant, while the 8GB / 128GB model is attached to 3,199 yuan (~ $ 461). Do you want the 10 GB / 256 GB version? You will use 3,999 yuan (~ $ 575). Unfortunately, we have not heard any news about a release outside China, but we keep you updated.
