nubia 230Nubia's Red Devil Marsruns 5G at China Unicom, has liquid cooling, includes force feedback and vibration, and a graphene heat sink! The 48 million nominal megapixel Sony IMX586 camera can produce (some kind of) 8K video.

The 4G version starts at US$400 for a unit that outclasses the iPhone in many ways. Amazon sells earlier Nubia phones and worldwide marketing is beginning.   

The phone is certified by the Tencent 2018TGA Grand Prix, sponsored by the 10% owner of China Unicom, games giant Tencent. Unicom was struggling, so the government brought in Alibaba and Tencent as shareholders and supporters. The joint marketing has been very successful.

450 million people watch esports and sponsors pay US$hundreds of millions to reach them. As you can see in the release below, the gaming features of the phone are remarkable.

Thanks to Richard Lai of Engadget for pointing me to this story.

Liquid cooling + air cooling!

Welcome  Asia is installing hundreds of thousands of 5G radios and adding 5G subs by the tens of millions. The west is far behind. 200,000,000 in 2020

The demand is there, and most of the technology works. Meanwhile, the hype is unreal. Time for reporting closer to the truth.
