Nubia has just announced its very own gaming brand, and it’s called ‘Red Magic’. If you take a look at the provided image, you will be able to see an official logo of the brand, and this announcement probably indicates that Nubia’s gaming smartphone is right around the corner, in order to compete with both the Razer Phone and the upcoming Xiaomi Black Shark gaming smartphone.
The Xiaomi Black Shark gaming handset will be announced on April 13, while the Razer Phone has been available out in the market for quite some time now. Nubia did not exactly chare all that much info about this new brand, it only shared an image that you can see down below, with a short explanation as to what it is. That being said, Nubia’s gaming smartphone is expected to be announced before the end of this month, at least if rumors are to be believed, which means that both the Black Shark and Nubia’s gaming smartphone will be announced in April, though we’re still waiting for a confirmation from Nubia. It is possible that the company may announce some other products under this brand, other than its gaming smartphone, maybe some accessories, or something of the sort. Nubia did say that it is planning to “provide a more complete gaming experience for the masses”.
Nubia did show off its gaming smartphone concept designs at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona back in February, and we’ve seen three different designs being showcased during the tradeshow. We’re still not sure whether the company plans to use either of those designs, or did it change its mind in the meantime, but chances are that the Black Magic-branded smartphone will look different than any phone released by Nubia to date. We are also not sure what the phone will be called exactly, but it will probably ship with the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC. The phone will also include plenty of RAM, probably 6GB or 8GB, though both variants are a possibility. You will also get a rather large display on this handset, as this is a gaming smartphone after all.
