Nubia Red Magic 2 Gaming Phone Teased Ahead Of Launch
Nubia Technology was started by ZTE in 2012 but the company later became independent in 2017 when ZTE reduced their stake in the brand. Nubia makes some interesting looking smartphones, of which an example is the Red Magic Gaming smartphone. The Red Magic 1 was released earlier this year and now the company is gearing up to launch it’s successor, the Red Magic 2. The company shared a poster of the upcoming smartphone on weibo.
The teaser reveals that the design of the new device will be quite similar to the Red Magic 1 which had a glass front and an aluminium back. The Red Magic 2 has a single rear camera with a hexagonal LED flash. Even the rear mounted finger print sensor has an elongated hexagonal shape. The back of the device has 4 slits with blue colour accents in them which add up to the gaming theme. The device will have a horizontal RGB light bar on the back side. The Red Magic 2 also has grey colour antenna lines on the back for allowing cell reception through the aluminium shell.
The teaser boasts some specifications of the smartphone and it seems the Red Magic 2 will be a capable gaming device. It will run on the latest Octa-Core Snapdragon 845 SoC and have 10 GB of RAM. The recently launched Xioami Black Shark Helo & the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 are one of the first devices to offer 10 GB of RAM. Additionally, the smartphone will have liquid cooling technology, 3D sound and 4D shock haptic feed back capabilities. The previously mentioned slits on the back might have stereo speakers producing a 3D like sound effect. About the 4D haptic feedback, the Red Magic 2 might have mutiple vibrating motors which will add a new dimension of user experience while playing games on the device. Nubia might try to emulate a similar experience as seen in the PS4 haptic feedback controllers.
Launch Date & Price
The teaser does not provide any specific launch date, but according to sources, the device will launch on the October 30. No information about the price is available but Nubia might want to price the device close to the Red Magic 1 which has a price tag of $ 399 (around Rs. 29,000).
