More or less a month has passed since Nubia, in China, pulled its latest creation out of the cylinder of wonders, namely the Red Magic 5G, expected terminal by the most hardened gamers. In fact, this device was born mainly for use in the gaming sector and is noted by many dedicated details, such as dedicated triggers, magnetic pins for attaching dedicated accessories but above all a monstrous hardware that boasts up to 16 GB of RAM and a 144 Hz panel, the first to be equipped on a smartphone.
So much power, however, until now was dedicated only to the Chinese market, but with today's event, Nubia brought the Red Magic 5G to the global market, maintaining an aggressive price.
As said earlier, the Nubia smartphone is the first model in the world to boast a 144-inch diagonal 6,65 Hz screen with AMOLED technology and Esports screen, modified exclusively for Red Magic 5G to offer fluidity and clear images at the same time. Equipped with the new Snapdragon 865, the device has the most powerful mobile platform produced by Qualcomm to date, also offering support for 5G in SA + NSA mode.
Nubia presents the global version of Red Magic 5G with 12 GB of RAM and 144 Hz display
Unlike the Chinese version, the global variant includes "only" 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM instead of 16 GB, but maintains the same UFS 3.0 storage space up to 256 GB. Other highlights of the smartphone include the 8MP front camera with SuperNight mode and a set of three 686MP Sony IMX64 main sensor rear cameras, as well as offering a wide angle lens with an 8MP sensor and a 2MP sensor for data shallow depth of field.
Nubia Red Magic 5G uses a 4500 mAh battery, while the only weak point of the flagship is the charging base that is supplied in the package, which turns out to be only 18W. However, Nubia has confirmed that a dedicated 55 W charger will be sold shortly.
As a way to improve the gaming experience, Nubia offers the new Turbo Fan 3.0 active liquid cooling system, with performance improved by 200% compared to previous generations thanks to a 30% higher air flow through the smartphone and the dedicated fan ..
