Earlier this month, on 10th of June, Nubia launched the Red Magic 3 smartphone in India, and the brand announced that the smartphone will go on sale starting 27th of June. Exactly ten days later, on the 20th of June, Motorola launched the One Vision in the country and announced that the device will be available to purchase from 27th of June. Well, as scheduled, both smartphones have gone on sale today, and both of them are exclusively available from Flipkart. For those of you who have been eager to get their hands on these devices, the wait is over; you can now finally buy one. Here is a quick look at the price and specifications of these devices, just to refresh your memory.
Motorola One Vision Price in India And Specifications
The Motorola One Vision is available in India in only one memory configuration – 4GB RAM + 128GB storage. And it can be had in two color variants — Bronze Gradient, and Sapphire Gradient. Both of them cost INR 19,999. There is a 5% instant discount offer going on Flipkart on ICICI credit and debit card with a maximum discount of INR 1,250. With this offer applied, you can get the Motorola One Vision for INR 18,749.
One of the standout features of the Motorola One Vision is its display. Unlike most other smartphones in the segment that feature a notch on their screen, the One Vision’s display has a punch-hole, which not only looks better than a notch, but it is also less obstructive on the screen as opposed to a notch. Moreover, the display has a 21:9 aspect ratio, which is the same aspect ratio in which most movies nowadays are shot in. The display itself is a 6.3-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
Another highlight feature of the One Vision is its rear camera setup. The smartphone comes with a 48MP rear camera. Now you might ask, what’s different here? There are other smartphones in the segment that have a 48MP camera. Well, this 48MP camera is equipped with OIS, which the other 48MP cameras in the segment miss out on. In theory, the OIS helps in getting more stabilized shots and better lowlight image quality. The primary camera is accompanied by a 5MP depth-sensor to aid in portrait images. The rear camera setup can record 4K videos at 30 FPS, and Full HD videos at 60 FPS. The front-facing camera of the smartphone is a 25MP unit.
While most smartphones in the segment feature a Qualcomm or MediaTek chipset, the Motorola One Vision comes with Exynos 9609, which has four Cortex-A73 cores, four Cortex-A53 cores, and Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. The One Vision is an Android One device, and it ships with Android 9 Pie OS. The smartphone, as I mentioned earlier, comes in India in 4GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration. The Motorola One Vision has a 3500mAh battery, 15W fast charging, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, splash-resistant coating, dual-SIM, dual-VoLTE, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Nubia Red Magic 3 Price in India And Specifications
The Nubia Red Magic 3 is available in India in two memory configurations. The base variant has 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and it has a price tag of INR 35,999, while the top-end variant has 12GB RAM + 256GB storage and it will set you back INR 46,999. However, Flipkart has listed only the base variant of the device. There is no information when the top-end variant will be available to purchase. The smartphone is being offered with a 5% instant discount on ICICI credit and debit card.
The Nubia Red Magic 3 is a gaming-oriented smartphone. It comes with a 6.65-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution. As you might know, any kind of notch on the screen obstructs the viewing experience, especially in games. And therefore, the Red Magic 3’s display is free from any kind of notch to facilitate a better viewing experience. That, however, comes at the cost of thicker bezels around the display, but I think it is better than having a notch. The screen has a 90Hz refresh rate, and this offers a smoother motion on display compared to a 60Hz refresh rate that you see on the displays of most other smartphones.
The Nubia Red Magic 3 features one of the most powerful chipsets in the smartphone industry – the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. This chipset offers the best graphics performance compared to any other chipsets you find in Android smartphones. The Nubia Red Magic 3 also comes with an inbuilt fan, which is a first in the smartphone industry. The fan is supposed to keep the chipset temperature cooler, which in return will offer higher performance under heavy loads. The smartphone ships with Android 9 Pie OS, and it has a few added functionalities that focus towards gaming, such as a Game Hub.
The Nubia Red Magic 3 doesn’t come with a dual-camera, or a triple-camera setup like you find with most other smartphones in the segment. Instead, it has a single 48MP camera, and in my opinion, considering all the other things the Red Magic 3 is offering at this price point, I think a single 48MP camera is nothing to complain about. Moreover, the camera sensor can record 8K videos, which is a first in the smartphone industry; there is a 4K 60 FPS video recording option as well. And as for selfies, there is a 16MP front-facing camera. The Nubia Red Magic 3 features a 5000mAh battery with 27W fast charging and other features of the smartphone include rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, dual-SIM connectivity with dual-VoLTE, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C port, 3.5mm audio jack, and an RGB light strip on the back panel that can be customized according to user’s preference.
