With the starting of this year all the smartphone manufacturers have been following the notch trend after the launch of the iPhone X. But, notches are not the only trend for the manufacturers.

The Nubia Red Magic comes with an impressive design and packs some high-end specs. But the smartphone is powered by last year's Snapdragon 835 processor instead of new Snapdragon 845. An older processor means it won't be able to match the performance of other gaming phones like Xiaomi's Black Shark and ASUS' ROG phone.

Obviously, you don't want to buy a gaming phone with an old processor. But this news will make you happy because Nubia is working on a successor of the gaming phone dubbed as Red Magic 2.

In a Tweet, Roland Quandt has revealed that a new Red Magic device is going to be launch soon, which is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 845. Along with the new processor the smartphone will also house shoulder buttons for the better gaming experience.
