As expected, the Nubia Red Magic Mars e-sport smartphone is now officially official. Nubia had launched its first generation Nubia Red Magic earlier this year with some specs that were at that time considered to be top notch. Fast forward to November 2018, those specs are now deemed obsolete, hence the need for the updated Nubia red Magic Mars e-sport smartphone.
To set the record straight, the updated Nubia Red Magic ditches last year’s SD 835 for the 2018 flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 mated with a cooling system called “ICE”, -a dual heat pipes that aims to cool down the temperature when things goes up during intense gaming, so it’s expected to perform great pretty much all the time. While the original Nubia Magic is offered in 8GB RAM and 128 GB storage, and much like the Nubia Red devil, the refreshed Nubia Magic Mars gets up to 10GB of RAM and 256GB storage.
It has the same 6-inch IPS LCD Full HD+ display with narrow bezels with a couple touch-sensitive areas on the sides that act as shoulder buttons which depend on a linear motor for “4D Shock” haptic feedback.
Camera-wise, the Nubia Red Magic Mars retains the 8MP selfie camera but switched the 24MP rear camera for a 16MP snapper. The device runs Android Pie out of the box while retaining the 3,800mAh battery for those power hungry games.
Finally, there are a couple of accessories accompanying the Mars- including Bluetooth-connected gaming controllers for even more hardware buttons, a box that combines USB-C charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as a headset with a microphone and other accessories.
You can get the device in Meteorite Black and Flame Red color options, plus a special Camo version for the top model. The top 10/256GB model sells for CNY 4,000/ $575, the 8GB/128GB model for CNY 3,200/ $460, while the base 6GB/64GB model sells for as low as CNY 2,700/ $390. The device will go on sale from 7th of December via Jingdong. You can hit the source link for more details.
