Let’s kick off with the display. The RedMagic 5G packs a 6.65 AMOLED E-Sports panel with the world’s first 144Hz refresh rate on a smartphone. Yes, you read correctly, we find a screen that is on par with most gaming monitors.
Why is that important? Well, a high refresh rate display will produce some of the smoothest and crystal clear visuals. On optimized games in particular, like Real Racing 3, the 144Hz refresh rate will provide an even smoother gaming experience. This amazing 144Hz refresh rate is possible thanks to RedMagic’s collaboration with Visionox and the powerful capabilities of the Adreno 650 GPU.
The RedMagic 5G does – of course – also feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. The most powerful CPU and GPU available are used to run the most demanding applications. Additionally, with the chipset, the phone also brings 5G SA+NSA dual mode support for most regions.
The SoC will then be paired with up to 12GB of RAM using the all new LPDDR5 tech and up to 256GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage. LPDDR5 can reach speeds of 5500Mbps, 1.5 times faster than the previous generation, LPDDR4X. While UFS 3.0 is 83% faster than the previous generation.
The smartphone then boasts a 4,500mAh large capacity battery and up to 55W fast charging with specific accessories. The battery adopts a single cell battery system instead of a dual cell, the projected life-span of the battery is longer than before.
RedMagic has also improved upon its classic features to improve the gaming experience. The new Active Liquid-Cooling with Turbo Fan 3.0 is 200% more effective from previous RedMagic phones and has increased the air flow volume by 30% to ensure the RedMagic 5G is performing at its best all the time. Additionally, there are also built-in shoulder trigger buttons now with 300Hz touch refresh rate and down to 2ms touch delay.
