A few days ago, Nubia revealed that it will be launching the Red Magic 3 smartphone in India on June 17 and that it will go on sale through Flipkart. Well, today, ahead of Nubia Red Magic 3’s India launch, 91Mobiles has exclusively revealed its price. According to 91Mobiles, the Nubia Red Magic 3 will be priced at INR 36,999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. The publication also says that it has learned from its source that Nubia wants to price the device aggressively, and therefore, it is possible that the final price could be even lower than what 91Mobiles is reporting.
With a price tag of INR 36,999, the Nubia Red Magic 3 will be a more affordable choice compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro and the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, making the Nubia Red Magic 3 a great option for people who are in search of a Snapdragon 855 powered smartphone. Nubia might also launch the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant of the Red Magic 3 in India, and if so, it will be more affordable than the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. If the 6GB + 64GB variant launches in India, it might very well be the most affordable Snapdragon 855 powered smartphone in the Indian smartphone market. Well, we will have to wait for the launch to know for sure.
