Nubia Technology has just launched the Red Magic 3 smartphone in China. The device is a successor to the Red Magic Mars and introduces an active liquid-cooling system with an internal cooling fan, instead of the traditional passive cooling system. It is slated for a global release in May, followed by India launch. Apart from the new active liquid-cooling system, the smartphone also comes with a whopping 5000mAh battery, a Snapdragon 855 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, and 30W quick charging.
In terms of design, the Red Magic 3 features the world’s first active cooling system on a smartphone with their state-of-the-art liquid cooling technology with an internal turbo fan, instead of a passive cooling mechanism found on other smartphones. Coming to the front, the device has a 6.65-inch full HD+ HDR AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, 2340 × 1080 pixels screen resolution, and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood, it is powered by a 7nm-based Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with Adreno 640 GPU, paired with 6GB, 8GB, or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. The device packs in a massive 5000mAh battery with 30W quick charging, which the company claims can offer an hour of gameplay with a 10-minute charge and runs on Android 9 Pie. Talking about other hardware specifications, there is a dual front-facing stereo speaker, along with DTS:X, and 3D sound technologies. Additionally, the device also has a hardware switch that toggles ‘Red Magic Game Space 2.0’, which is a gaming dashboard using which you can organize and quick-launch games, fine-tune performance settings and fan speeds, monitor temperature and usage stats in real time, block notifications for uninterrupted gaming, record in-game videos, and more.
Coming to the optics, the Red Magic 3 sports a 48MP rear camera with Sony IMX586 sensor, f/1.75 aperture, dual LED flash on the rear, and a 16MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture on the front for selfies.
