Back in November, Chinese phone maker Nubia launched their most powerful gaming device – the Nubia Red Devil, with flagship hardware going from the Snapdragon 845 CPU to the 10GB of RAM (for the top variant). Today, the company announced a new variant of the handset called RNG Edition.
The acronym “RNG” stands for “Royal Never Give Up”, which is a Chinese eSports club that competes on League of Legends’s Pro League, thus it’s a gaming smartphone for the fans of a team we suspect is very popular in China.
The only real difference with the ordinary variants appears to be aesthetic, we’ve indeed have a signing on the back of the phone from the various players in the team.
Hardware stays unchanged, with the 8GB of LPDDRX4 RAM paired with a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a nice 128GB of internal storage. The CPU is then supported by air and liquid cooling systems, which on paper should drop the temps of about 13.2 degrees, allowing you to run the CPU at full speed without overheating.
In addition to the extraordinarily good cooling system, the Nubia Red Devil is also be equipped with a DTS Sound system and a SmartPA amplifier, so games should sound more immersive than ever.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a gaming phone without a gimmicky “gaming mode” activated via dedicated button. When pressed, the phone does indeed improve CPU performance, turns on the RGB lighting and toggles on a feature called “4D Shock”.
As far as pricing is concerned, the Nubia Red Devil Mars RNG Edition will cost 3299 Yuan, around with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of storage can now be purchased in China for 3888 Yuan, which is around $480.
