Nubia introduced the Red Magic Mars in China today, and just like its predecessor, this device features a single strip of RGB LEDs down the back, but is now powered by a Snapdragon (SD) 845 CPU and runs Android Pie (9.0) out of the box. The 6-inch IPS LCD 1080p display remains the same, with an added ‘shoulder-button’ set-up that boasts four touch-sensitive, haptic-enabled areas along the edge of the phone to act as additional buttons during gaming sessions. The top-of-the-line model boasts 10GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Read more for a hands-on video, additional pictures and information.
A vapor cooling system keeps the phone from overheating, while its motor-based rumble system and RGB light strip reacts to in-game action. In addition to stereo speakers built into the phone, users can also play around with a voice changer, all powered by a 3,800mAh battery.
“Beyond just being a portable gaming device, the Red Magic Mars also features an 8MP front camera and 16MP main camera. The device will start shipping in China on December 7th, with three available models: 6GB RAM and 64GB storage for 2,699 yuan (about $390), 8GB RAM and 128GB storage for 3,199 yuan (about $460) or 10GB RAM and 256GB storage for 3,999 yuan (about $575),” reports Engadget.
