That's a picture of an Alpha II.

"Rubik's cube" often doesn't refer to a certain brand.

The problem is that Rubik's Cube has become a generic term for all these type puzzles. Many sites sell non-Rubik's brand cubes as Rubik's cubes. The more reputable ones might say "DiYan Guhong" or "Maru" etc. Some people prefer non-Rubik's brand and some use nothing else.

If you're not sure what you're getting, if it's a new cube it will have a rubik's logo. If it has a plain "Rubik's Cube" on one centre, it might be an older cube, but if there's nothing like it or a different logo, then it isn't Rubik's brand.
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.

A "magic cube" to be precise. :)
