Nubia Red Magic 5G gaming smartphone that was unveiled in March has received a new Transparent Edition. The phone was first made available in Black, Mars Red, and Cyber Neon color options and now a fourth option is getting added to the club as well.
Note that the Transparent Edition was initially introduced during the same event where the company unveiled the standard model but it is now only getting available for pre-orders in China for CNY 4,599 ($654). The edition is available only in the 12GB RAM and 256GB storage version.
The Transparent Edition doesn’t have a transparent back. It is rather a sticker or a well-stuck theme that offers a transparent effect on the back of the device. The sticker showcases where the key components and other internals of the device are located.
