A couple of years back, Razer created a whole new gaming smartphone category by launching the Razer Phone. Both the Razer Phone 1 and Razer Phone 2 came with the same 16:9 IPS display with the 120Hz refresh rate. On the other hand, the Chinese manufacturers came up with cheaper alternatives with the standard 60Hz refresh rate. Last year’s ASUS ROG Phone offered a slightly better 90Hz display. While there is not much content supporting the higher refresh rates, its good to have a responsive display even for playing limited titles.
Nubia will be launching its latest Red Magic 3 smartphone on April 28th in China. The company has revealed the key specifications of the device. The latest post on Weibo also confirms the Red Magic 3 to launch with a 90Hz display. The user can manually select between the 90Hz or 60Hz refresh rate. However, the device can also automatically switch between the 90Hz or 60Hz refresh rate depending on the usage. Since using the device with the 90Hz refresh rate will drain the battery faster, the automatic selection might only turn it on when playing games.
Even the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro is also rumored to sport a bezel-less display with the 90Hz refresh rate. Also, the Red Magic 3 will be the world’s first smartphone to come with a built-in fan to keep it at an optimal temperature. It will certainly be helpful while playing games for longer durations. The company is also sharing the cooling fan along with the launch invite in China. From the leaked images, we can see the air vents on the rear and side edges. In terms of design, the Red Magic 3 will look similar to the previously launched Red Magic smartphones.
On the rear, the Red Magic 3 will be coming with a single camera and a long RGB LED strip. The recently leaked screenshot revealed the device’s Antutu score as 437524. It is the highest we have ever seen on a smartphone. The Red Magic 3 will come powered by the flagship 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform coupled with Kryo 485 CPU and latest Adreno 640 GPU. The device will be offering up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. It might come with a 5,000mAh battery along with 30W fast charging support.
