Red Magic 5G, the smartphone as powerful as a computer

Nubia launches the Red Magic 5G, a gaming smartphone with incredible performance. On board the Snapdragon 865 with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of memory

It's called Red Magic 5G and it's the new gaming smartphone from Nubia, a Chinese company that has specialized in this market niche. Like previous models, we are faced with an extreme device, both in terms of design with colorful covers, and performance. Already from the name you can see a key feature, namely the presence of the 5G modem integrated into the processor Snapdragon 865, the beating heart of the phone dedicated to the world of gaming.

The standard equipment of the Red Magic 5G is very rich, starting with three special features derived from the universe of gaming: the 144 Hz display, the physical fan with liquid cooling system with vapor chamber and, finally, the buttons located on the back of the phone shell that allow a refresh rate of 300 Hz and a delay of only 2 ms.

The Red Magic 5G sports a 6.65-inch AMOLED full HD+ display and 144Hz refresh rate.

The Snapgragon 865 under the shell is supported by 8-12-16GB of RAM and 128-256GB of internal memory, depending on the model chosen.

The photo section is certainly not the strong point of the smartphone, but we still find a triple rear camera with 64-megapixel Sony main sensor f/1.8 and LED flash, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor and a 2-megapixel macro lens. 12-megapixel front camera.
