Nubia was one of the first smartphone-makers to tease the arrival of Snapdragon 855 Plus-powered phones following the launch of Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset. In fact, Nubia did not mimic the words and revealed that an upgraded version of the Nubia Red Magic 3 gaming phone with Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC at its heart will be coming soon. Now, Nubia has confirmed that its next gaming-centric phone, the Nubia Red Magic 3S, will be launched on 5 September.
The company has released an official launch poster and mentioned in its Weibo post that the Nubia Red Magic 3S gaming phone will be unveiled on 5 September. Nubia brand president and co-founder, Ni Fei, revealed in a separate web post that the Nubia Red Magic 3S will be launched in Shanghai at an event on the date above. However, the company does not have to drop any teasers about the upcoming phone or its specifications.
Nubia confirmed last month that the upgraded version of the Nubia Red Magic 3 will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Plus. The processor is the only concrete detail about the Nubia Red Magic 3S so far. Vivo iQoo Pro, Black Shark 2 Pro, and Asus ROG Phone 2 are the only other phones that are equipped with Snapdragon 855 Plus processor.
The Nubia Red Magic 3 has come with some innovative features such as an advanced cooling system, which employs an internal turbo fan for thermal management. Additionally, the phone is equipped with a large 5,000 mAh battery for 27W fast charging and capacitive shoulder triggers, which have replaced the on-screen buttons for more precise control. We expect the Nubia Red Magic 3S to take these features from its predecessor.
