There’s a lot to say about the Red Magic 3. It’s a phone with powerhouse specs and some unique gaming features. We’re talking active liquid-cooling with an internal “turbo fan” (an industry first and something we’d love to test), a 5,000mAh battery with a 27W quick charge system, a 6.65″ ultra-widescreen FHD+ HDR AMOLED display and, of course, that Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 CPU with an Adreno 640 GPU sitting alongside.
Is your money falling out of your wallet? Well, there’s more. It’s available with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, plus built-in capacitive shoulder triggers with custom mapping and front-facing stereo speakers with DTS:X technology.
Gaming is set to be huge in the next few years as 5G and streamed gaming services start becoming more and more popular. Phones like this, with advanced haptic feedback and RGB lighting, will help owners get a console experience no matter where they are.
In addition to this Red Magic 3 and games streamed over 5G, you’ll be able to view more movies, TV and sports content, such as NFL football. There’ll be no buffering, no lag and you’ll have a much higher resolution picture – this is something that is especially important in high-speed sports footage, which is already being broadcast in 4K.
The Red Magic 3 is available to purchase from their site and you can get the 8GB RAM / 128GB storage version for £419. There’s also an adapter which adds a 3.5mm headphone port, high-speed ethernet port and a Type-C connector. This will double as a phone stand, effectively becoming your home-based console too.
