nubia’s gaming smartphone reaching Indian shores on December 20
Chinese smartphone brand nubia launched its very first gaming smartphone – the nubia Red Magic – back in April this year in China. And late last month, nubia launched the Red Magic Mars with upgraded innards. Well now, nubia is all set to bring its gaming smartphone to India.
nubia through its Twitter handle has announced that it will be launching its gaming smartphone in India on December 20. But, it’s currently unclear which gaming smartphone will nubia launch in India as the company hasn’t explicitly mentioned which gaming smartphone it’s bringing to the country. However, instead of launching the Red Magic, we would like nubia to launch the Red Magic Mars in India as it comes with Snapdragon 845 SoC as opposed to Snapdragon 835 which powers the Red Magic.
Enough is enough, it's time for a new species to take over. It's time for a complete annihilation.
