The latest mobile processor from Qualcomm upgraded from the Snapdragon 835, which was launched in its predecessor Red Magic smartphone released in April – the device also comes equipped with features for extended gaming sessions. It features a vapor cooling system to keep the phone from overheating, a motorbike-based rumble system and RGB light strips that reacts to in-game action.
Capacitive shoulder devices provide additional controls, but you can also tack on a joystick to move away from some of the less precise touch-based controls on the 6-inch 2160×1080 LCD screen. There are stereo speakers built into the phone, as well as a voice changer that some streamers seem to like to use. A 3,800mAh battery should keep gamers going through a good chunk of the day.
Beyond just being a portable gaming device, the Red Magic Mars also features an 8MP front camera and 16MP main camera. Living up to its name, it comes in but has a black variation as well if that's more your style. The device will start shipping in China on December 7th, with three available models: 6GB RAM and 64GB storage for 2,699 yuan (about $ 390), 8GB RAM and 128GB storage for 3,199 yuan (about $ 460) or 10GB RAM and 256GB storage for 3,999 yuan (about $ 575).
