The Nubia Red Magic Mars has a 6 inches IPS LCD screen, with 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution. The phone has two touch-sensitive areas on its side, which act like shoulder buttons. A linear motor is used to create the “4D Shock” haptic feedback. There are stereo speakers with DTS 7.1 audio for an overall engulfing experience (plus, directional sound is very important in many games for locating enemies).

To make the phone more fun, you can buy Bluetooth-connected gaming controllers for even more hardware buttons. There’s also a box that combines USB-C charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack (it has a high-quality DAC inside). There’s also a headset with a microphone and other accessories.
