Painting the town with Red Magic! At least that’s what Nubia seems to portray with their latest gaming smartphone on the racks. With a mean-looking, all-red accent, the Red Magic is ready to set your mood for gaming. Power you ask? Well, it sports some of the best hardware money can buy. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, 8GB/12GB LPDDR4X RAM options, 128GB/256GB UFS2.1 2-lane storage variants, 90Hz full HD AMOLED 6.65 inches display that spews up to 240 frames-a-second, and a good 5000mAh battery with 27W quick charging support. Well, that’s not all — discrete capacitive shoulder buttons that saves you from additional gaming accessories, 4D vibrations, dual front-facing stereo speakers, customizable RGB lighting on the rear panel, a 48MP rear camera that can shoot up to 8K videos, and all that for a good ₹46,999. In fact, this is the world’s first smartphone to sport an active cooling fan. Go cheaper with the 8GB/128GB variant at ₹35,999. Throw in Nubia's earphones, game controller and a charging doc for ₹2,999, ₹1,999 and ₹2,499 respectively (approx pricing) and your gaming kit is ready for the road. If sheer gaming is your concern, you should try out this Magic. And yes – it does have a 3.5-mm headphone jack!
