Except for the battery capacity and charging speeds, the Red Magic 6 and Red Magic 6 Pro are identical in every respect.

Firepower comes from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset, coupled with up to 16GB RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 flash storage. In terms of optics, we have a 64MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro lens, and an 8MP front shooter. The Red Magic 6 series packs a 5,050mAh battery with support for 66W fast charging (but you only get a 30W brick inside the box).
Other specifications of the Red Magic 6 series include air trigger buttons, a built-in active cooling fan, an in-display fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm audio jack, dual speakers, Wi-FI 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and Android 11.

This article incorrectly stated that the global Red Magic 6 Pro packed a 4,500mAh battery and supported 120W fast charging. We have corrected the post to reflect that both global models pack a 5,050mAh battery while the Pro model only supports 66W fast charging — Only the Chinese Red Magic 6 Pro supports up to 120W fast charging. We regret the error.
