Now, the handset was made available through the crowdfunding site IndieGoGo. Early backers can get the smartphone for $399 (roughly Rs. 26,700), and the smartphone will begin shipping in May. The company has said that it will ship the Red Magic smartphone to India, Europe, the united kingdom, and a host of other nations. However, interested buyers in the US and Canada will have to await the smartphone. The handset is presently recorded on IndieGoGo to get a month-long campaign to raise $50,000 (approximately Rs. 33,41,800). It has raised over $30,000 (roughly Rs. 20,05,500) from more than a hundred backers, reaching 61 percent of its target with a month left for the fundraising campaign.
