ZTE sub-brand Nubia has launched a new gaming smartphone dubbed the Red Magic.

Since the Red Magic is gaming smartphone and specs don't relay any jokes, it's only reasonable that Nubia hasn't gone for the best imaging setup on the device. After that Xiaomi had also announced Black Shark gaming smartphone.

The Red Magic is a dedicated gaming smartphone with Snapdragon 835 chipset created to compete directly with Xiaomi's Black Shark phone. Since so far the Razer Phone has been the only gaming smartphone available on the market, the new Red Magic Phone comes as a direct rival in the same niche. It looks like a true gaming-centric device with those configurable LED strips on the rear. It has Air cooling.

Preorders will be open on April 25th in China with the starting price at 2,499 yuan (roughly $397) for the base mode and 2,999 yuan (around $477) for the high-end version. Rs 31,600). Nubia will be releasing the device through IndieGogo on April 26th, though pre-orders start a day earlier. It is priced at $399. The Xiaomi Black Shark gaming device also comes with a cooling system, but in Nubia's device, it is designed in a way that the heat is dissipated completely across its diamond-cut design, which in turn will not affect the performance while gameplay.
