ZTE sub brand Nubia has announced new additions to its line of RedMagic phones in its home country of China. They are the Nubia RedMagic 6 and the RedMagic 6 Pro. And while the company has only announced the phones in China, it also has a website counting down to a global launch later in the month.
But first, the phones themselves. Starting with the Nubia RedMagic 6, it comes with a 6.8-inch Full HD+ OLED display, with a refresh rate of 165Hz. It’s the highest refresh rate among phones for now. It also comes with a much faster single-finger touch sampling rate of 500Hz. Odd that the company would specify that, and the fact that the touch sampling rate drops to 360Hz for more than one finger instead. Then there are the capacitive shoulder triggers, with a sampling rate of 400Hz.
On the inside, the Nubia RedMagic 6 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 5050mAh battery that supports 66W charging. Then there’s the RedMagic signature fan, which goes up to 15000rpm in speed. It has a 64MP main + 8MP wide angle + 2MP macro camera setup at the back, and an 8MP camera in front. And as a bonus, it also has a 3.5mm audio jack.
Then there’s the Nubia RedMagic 6 Pro, which is mostly identical to the base model, with a few differences. For one, the battery is a little smaller at 4500mAh, but supports 120W charging. The fan speed is also pushed up to a maximum of 20000rpm.
The Nubia RedMagic 6 is priced at CNY3799 (~RM2388), while the Pro model comes with a CNY4399 (~RM2766) price tag. Then there’s a “Dao” special edition that comes in two configurations. One comes with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage, and a CNY5599 (~RM3520) price tag. Another, with a whopping 18GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, costs, CNY6599 (~4149). No price for the global market yet, but we’ll likely find out more on 16 March.
