Gaming phones are nothing new, but Nubia’s Red Magic 3 just might be the ultimate, which no only features a “liquid cooling” copper heat pipe, but also a dedicated internal cooling fan that can spin up to 14,000 rpm. The device boasts an IP55 rating as well as its own isolated chamber to ensure liquids and dust don’t sneak in. Other features include a 6.65-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, DTS:X surround front-facing speakers, and a high-capacity 5,000mAh battery with USB Power Delivery quick charge of up to 27W (QC 4.0 compatible).

“As for cameras, the Red Magic 3 comes with a 48-megapixel f/1.7 main imager powered by a Sony IMX586 sensor, along with a 16-megapixel f/2.0 front camera but with an unknown sensor. Sadly, there’s no optical stabilization here, but the main camera is setting two new records in the mobile industry: it can apparently handle 8K — yes, 8K — video recording, and it also has a super slow motion mode of up to a whopping 1,920 fps,” reports Engadget.
This fan-cooled gaming smartphone launches in China on May 3rd, priced from 2,899 yuan / $430 USD (6GB RAM and 64GB storage) and a top-of-the-line model for 4,299 yuan / $640 USD (12GB RAM and 256GB storage). The phone will hit the US, Canada, UK and Europe in late May, complete with a possible 5G radio add-on.
