Red magic 6 – 5G Dual SIM 12GB 128GB
The Red Magic 6 gaming segment is rapidly expanding, and nubia is at the forefront. The company has a history of doing things differently and has employed the same strategy for its gaming phones. Pretty much all of the previous Red Magic releases had something new and exciting to bring to the table, and the latest Red Magic 6 is no exception. This time around, however, there’s not just a fancy built-in fan. Both the Red Magic 6 and the Red Magic 6 Pro are the first phones to launch with a 165Hz display and 500Hz single-finger touch sampling rate. We are yet to see how that affects battery life and if gaming above 144Hz is possible, given how limited the support for Android games is to 60fps, to begin with. Additionally, the panel has grown in size from 6.65″ to 6.8″. In the gaming world, more is always better. Other gaming-related features include blazing-fast 400Hz and pressure-sensitive shoulder triggers that make certain games a delight to play. This current implementation improves upon the previous two generations that had 300Hz triggers. And in case that’s not enough, nubia will gladly sell you a couple of additional accessories like a gaming adapter for port expansion (DisplayPort 1.4 included). The Ice Dock from last year makes a return as a Dual-core Ice Dock that provides some extra cooling capabilities while gaming and in our previous review of the Red Magic 5S, we found it to be pretty useful. The rest of the hardware, although quite powerful, matches the industry’s standard with a Snapdragon 888 chipset, 12GB/128GB memory configuration as a base, and up to 5,050 mAh battery capacity depending on which version of the phone you choose. The Pro model comes with a smaller 4,500 mAh unit as it trades the 550 mAh capacity for the speedy 120W charging, which is exclusive to China. Outside of China, both devices ship with 66W fast charging support.
