Red Magic 5G is now available for pre-order, global sales begin April 21st
The Red Magic 5G was announced in early March as Nubia’s latest gaming-focused smartphone. The brand is no stranger to this growing market, and the Red Magic 5G brings a few new features to the fold. The device is now available for prospective buyers to pre-order and will be available globally on April 21st.
The headlining feature of the Red Magic 5G is not the 5G support that gives it its name. Instead, it is the fact that is the first smartphone on the market with a 144Hz refresh rate display. Of course, as with any other high refresh rate display on smartphones these days, it’s only used to its full potential if certain applications. Games that do support running at higher frame rates will feel great to play. If you’re worried about heat and power consumption, Nubia says the device is kept cool with the “Turbo Fan” system.
The other striking thing about the Red Magic 5G is the design of the phone. There are three color options to choose from, and they each offer a very bold look. “Gaming phones” tend to have a specific aesthetic, and the Red Magic 5G certainly fits into that mold. Another great design feature is the touch-sensitive shoulder buttons. Check out the full specifications below the video.
