The three devices that will be announced in the country include Nubia Red Magic 3, the flexible Nubia Alpha smartwatch, and the Nubia Pods.

Nubia unveiled its Alpha smartwatch and the Nubia Pods wireless earbuds at Mobile World Congress (MWC) earlier this year. The company is yet to officially launch Nubia Red Magic 3 gaming smartphone, but Nubia’s general manager Ni Fei via a Weibo post has already confirmed six key features and specifications of it.
The upcoming device will be powered by Qualcomm’s leading Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with 12GB of RAM.

The handset will have a higher refresh rate than most gaming PCs with a special eye-protecting feature too. The smartphone will be fuelled by a 3,800mAh battery with fast charging support. The handset will be seen competing against Razer Phone 2 smartphone, which offers 120Hz refresh rate. The Red Magic 3 will also come with air and liquid dual-cooling system to control the internal temperature while enjoying high-end games.
