ZTE has started taking pre-orders for the Transparent Edition of its Nubia Red Magic 5G smartphone in China.
The device doesn't actually have a transparent back. Instead, a special sticker is attached on the inside of the protective glass which shows the position of the key components.
Other than that, it is the same as the standard Nubia Red Magic 5G.
