Earlier this week, Nubia’s upcoming gaming smartphone Nubia Red Magic 5G appeared on Chinese certification agency TENAA. Thanks to it, we got a good idea of the smartphone specifications, however, images were absent. Now, these images were added to the certification listing giving us a good glimpse in the smartphone’s final design. The device bearing NX659J model number will come with a dual-colored frame with the left side sporting a blue coat of paint while the right-hand-side will tout a red finish.
The rear features a metal casing with visible grilles for the head dissipation on the top and bottom. Moreover, a long glossy strip can be spotted as a house for the triple-camera setup. Red Magic branding stands in the middle and a logo on the bottom. We have to say that the dual-color gradient is somewhat stunning in this smartphone.
Moving on to the sides, we can see another air vent on the right alongside what appears to be capacitive should buttons. The left-hand-side also packs an air vent, alert slider, and volume rocker. According to TENAA, the phone will boast a 6.65-inch display with a 4,400mAh battery running the show.
Red Magic 5G specifications
While many companies are betting in the 120Hz refresh rate to make their smartphones sell, Nubia will go a step forward. The Nubia Red Magic 5G will come with a whopping 144Hz display. It’s the world’s first smartphone to sport a panel with such a high refresh rate. Under the hood, the smartphone will boast the Snapdragon 865 which will be coupled with 16GB LPDDR5 RAM. The handset also makes use of an “air-cooled fast charging solution” to prevent it from overheating while charging.
While gaming smartphones don’t have cameras as a big priority, we expect to see Sony’s IMX686 64MP sensor making an appearance here. The phone was originally intended for MWC 2020. However, with the event cancellation, it will be revealed in China soon.
