nubia Red Magic 6 series announced with 165Hz display, Snapdragon 888
The Red Magic lineup from nubia has established itself as one of the leaders in the gaming smartphone world. The latest additions are the Red Magic 6 and 6 Pro. The Pro sports faster 120W charging, up to 18GB RAM and 512GB storage alongside a more aggressive design. The rest of the specs are identical across both models. The Red Magic 6 duo are the first phones to launch with 165Hz refresh rate screens. They also pack the flagship Snapdragon 888, fan cooling and run Red Magic OS 4 based on Android 11.
The star of the show is undoubtedly the 6.8-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with its 165Hz adaptive refresh rate. When the screen is not showing dynamic content it drops to 30Hz but it can quickly scale up to 120Hz in menus or apps and up to 165Hz in supported game titles. The panel also supports a 360Hz multi-touch sampling rate and up to 500Hz one-finger touch sampling rate. The display supports 10-bit colors and also features a fingerprint scanner tucked below the screen.
The signature touch-sensitive shoulder triggers make a return on this year’s Red Magic 6 and 6 Pro and now support 400Hz touch sampling rate for minimizing input latency. Another Red Magic staple – the active cooling air fan is also present and now spins at up to 18,000 RPM on the Red Magic 6 and 20,000 RPM on the Pro to help keep thermals in check. Both models are also outfitted with several copper heat sinks that further boost cooling.
