Nubia Red Magic 3 Specifications
The Nubia Red Magic 3 sports a 6.65-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The display has a 90Hz refresh rate compared to the 60Hz refresh rate that you find in most other smartphones. The higher refresh rate offers a smoother motion. This not only makes the game look more fluid, but it also facilitates better gameplay. And apart from gaming, the higher refresh rate provides a comparatively more fluid scrolling experience. The display also comes with 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
As you might expect with any smartphone advertised as a gaming smartphone, the Nubia Red Magic 3 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. This is currently the flagship chipset from Qualcomm for 2019, and it is among the most powerful chipsets available in the smartphone market. With the Snapdragon 855, you can expect the device to offer fast and smooth performance. Moreover, the chipset can yield high frame rates in games, which should provide for an exceptional gaming experience. What’s even better is that the smartphone comes with an inbuilt fan; it helps in cooling down the phone faster compared to the smartphones with passive cooling. With a cooler SoC temperature, the chipset should have a better sustained performance. As a result, you can get high performance under heavy load for a longer period of time.
The Nubia Red Magic 3 comes with Android 9 Pie OS, and it has near stock UI. Nubia has, however, equipped the OS with few gaming-oriented features, such as Game Hub; it shows all your games in one place, allows you to monitor hardware statistics in real time, record gameplay, and block notifications while playing games. And speaking of gaming-oriented features, the smartphone comes with a stereo speaker setup; it should offer a better gaming experience.
In terms of imaging, the Red Magic 3 has a 48MP rear camera and a 16MP front-facing camera. The 48MP rear camera cannot only record 4K videos at 60 frames per second, but it can also record 8K videos at 15 FPS, and 1920 FPS slow-motion videos. Powering the Nubia Red Magic 3 is a 5000mAh battery. And the battery pack supports 27W fast charging. Other features of the Nubia Red Magic 3 include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port, dual-SIM with dual-VoLTE, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a customizable RGB light strip on the back panel.
