Nubia’s Red Magic is gaming-focused smartphone. Nubia, a ZTE sub-brand in China has introduced its new phone, especially for passionate mobile gamers. It is practically attracting them through its aggressively red openings and details.
Specification on the Red Magic includes the 5.99-inch IPS LCD display with a 2160 x 1080, 18:9 resolution. There are sharp, hexagonal cutouts for the camera and fingerprint sensor, a minimal forehead, and chin at the top and bottom of the black anodized aluminum frame.
