Who wouldve expected the gaming smartphone battles will get that fierce? Just days after the announcement from Asus that the new ROG Phone will come with Snapdragon 855 Plus, ZTEs subsidiary nubia said it will update its Red Magic 3 handset with the latest Qualcomm SoC as well.
In an announcement on Weibo, the Red Magic account said it isnt afraid of challenges and the trends change so quickly, its latest gaming smartphone will be soon upgraded to Snapdragon 855 Plus.
Questions remain if the current Red Magic 3 will get a price cut and remain available alongside the new version or if it will be replaced, but we guess we’ll get our answers in due time.
Earlier we heard vivo also preparing an updated iQOO with 5G connectivity, which looks like another candidate to receive the Snapdragon 855+.
Xiaomi, another player on the gaming phone scene, launched two Black Shark devices last year and with the Black Shark 2 already out, we wouldnt be surprised to see another variant around October, this time with Snapdragon 855 Plus.
