Nubia Red Magic 3S starting price of ₹ 35,999
Gaming smartphone maker Nubia is going to launch its latest gaming smartphone Red Magic 3S in India and its price has come out a day before the launch. It is clear from the name that this smartphone will be an upgraded version of the previous Red Magic 3. Red Magic 3 was launched in India earlier this year. The price of this smartphone has been shown on Flipkart, a shopping platform owned by Walmart before the launch.
The storage variant, display, processor and other specifications of this device were shared on the dedicated microsite of the phone on Flipkart, which has now been removed. It has been said that Nubia Red Magic 3S will be launched in the country at an initial price of Rs 35,999. The base variant of this smartphone can be launched with 128 GB internal storage, which will have 8 GB RAM. The second more powerful variant of Nubia Red Magic 3S can be launched with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage and its price has not been revealed yet.

Talk about the specifications, a 6.65-inch FullHD + HDR AMOLED display can be given in Nubia Red Magic 3S. This display will come with a 90GHz refresh rate and HDR support. Other features in Nubia Red Magic 3S can be seen in the same way as the previous device Nubia Red Magic 3. In this too, it is believed that a turbofan cooling system will be provided to protect the device from overheating. Users can get an in-display fingerprint scanner. Also, the rear camera of the device can also be upgraded with a dual-sensor unit. For long battery backup, users can get 5000mAh battery in it.
The Red Magic 3 is one of the few gaming-oriented phones out there. This smartphone category is something quite new to the market, but lately, it seems to have seen quite a lot of success, with several vendors now offering their own take on what should be a gaming phone. Making a gaming smartphone, however, isn’t quite as straightforward as one might think. In terms of hardware, yes the recent devices all have the latest components such as the Snapdragon 855 SoC, however as we’ve seen with attempts from other vendors, the results aren’t always what you’d expect.
The one aspect where the Red Magic 3 does differ from the competition is that it’s currently one of the only smartphones that quite noticeable differs in its hardware design: The inclusion of an active cooling fan inside of the phone is something quite unusual and certainly not something we’ve seen before in the past.
In terms of internals, as mentioned, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC which should offer sufficient performance if given enough thermal headroom to flex its capabilities. The SoC is accompanied by either 8 or 12GB of RAM in 128 or 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage options – so nothing quite out of the ordinary there.
The OLED screen of the Red Magic 3 comes in at a larger 6.65” diagonal and with a “standard” resolution of 2340 x 1080. So far that’s not too special if it weren’t for the fact that this is also a 90Hz capable display panel. Indeed, this one feature puts the Red Magic 3 in a very small list of high refresh-rate smartphones available in the market. We’ve first reviewed such as a phone in the form of the OnePlus 7 Pro, and it’s absolutely a stand-out feature.
