At CES ZTE has announced that its nubia Red Magic Mars gaming smartphone is headed to the US and Europe pretty soon – so the rumors were right.
The handset will be available in those markets on January 31. Pricing has only been unveiled for the US, and it’s $399 for the entry-level version which has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The higher-end models with 8/128GB and 10/256GB, respectively, are also likely to be offered in Western markets, but that hasn’t been made official yet.
If you’re wondering what you get in exchange for $399 of your hard earned cash, here’s a quick spec reminder for the nubia Red Magic Mars. First off, the one important thing for gamers: it has an RGB light panel on the back. It’s also got a 6-inch FHD+ touchscreen, the Snapdragon 845 chipset, Android 9 Pie, a 16 MP f/1.8 main camera, an 8 MP selfie shooter, and a 3,800 mAh battery.
The Red Magic Mars became available in China last month, and a few days ago it topped all of its competitors in AnTuTu’s monthly Top 10 rating. Maybe that’s thanks to its dual liquid+air cooling system.
