Nubia has officially unveiled the Red Magic 6 series comprised of the Red Magic 6 and 6 Pro. The new duo is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, features a 165Hz refresh rate, and runs on Red Magic OS 4 based on Android 11.
The two devices share a 6.8-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with its 165Hz adaptive refresh rate. When the phone isn’t showing dynamic content it goes to 30Hz but goes up to 120Hz in menus or apps and up to 165Hz in supported game titles. As far as touch sampling rate goes, it supports up to 500Hz one-finger touch sampling rate and a 360Hz multi-touch sampling rate. In addition, its fingerprint scanner is housed under its display.
The signature touch-sensitive shoulder triggers returns for the Red Magic 6 series, this time supporting a 400Hz touch sampling rate. The new series also features the active cooling fan that one can expect from a Red Magic device. This now spins at 18,000 RPM on the Red Magic 6 and 20,000 RPM on the Pro version. To boost cooling, both devices also have several copper sinks.
Around the back is the triple camera setup with a 64MP main camera accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide snapper and a 2MP macro lens.
The Red Magic 6 has 8/12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128/256GB UFS 3.1 internal storage coupled with the Snapdragon 888. It also features a 5050mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging.
