Following the Nubia RedMagic 6 series launch in China on March 4, the flagship gaming smartphones will be available in the Middle East with pre-orders starting on April 9. They feature high-end specifications with gaming oriented features.
165Hz AMOLED display
The RedMagic 6 and 6 Pro sport AMOLED screens with a 165Hz refresh rate. This makes visuals smoother combined especially with the display’s single finger touch sampling rate of up to 500Hz. In combination, you benefit from a low 8ms response time enabling players to hit and play faster and more accurately.
You find a 6.8-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel here with a 20:9 aspect ratio, a 91.28 per-cent screen-to-body ratio and SGS certification for eye care and low smear. There is support for 10bit colour, full DCI-P3 coverage and a peak brightness of 630 nits. Under the display, there is a 6th generation fingerprint sensor that unlocks 50 per-cent faster compared to last year.
ICE 6.0 cooling system
Inside the RedMagic 6 series, you find the ICE 6.0 Multi-dimensional cooling system with a built-in turbofan. The latter uses a brush-less motor, is energy saving and remains silent at only 28 decibels. It can reach up to 20,000 rpm while the canyon air duct design of the smartphone increases the heat transfer coefficient by 500 per-cent.
The back of the RedMagic 6 Pro uses an aero-grade heat dissipation back plate. It is a highly thermally conductive aviation grade aluminium alloy material with a thermal conductivity of 200W/(mK). This greatly increases heat dissipation while the thermal conductivity of the back cover reduces the temperature of the fuselage surface by 3-5 degrees specifically on the RedMagic 6 Pro. Gaming enthusiasts can even go a step further with the new dual-core Ice Dock. This is a dual system with dual fans and semiconductors for improved cooling. This ensures cooling but also adds a visual flair with RGB lights and a wing-shaped design.
The RedMagic 6 series boasts the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 octa-core processor with new Adreno 660 graphics. Alongside this, you find LPDDR5 RAM support and faster UFS 3.1 storage. The processor on the smartphones also enables AI and 5G connectivity for faster and more stable gaming experiences when on the move.
Pairing with this hardware, the RedMagic 6 series comes with RedMagic OS 4.0 based on Android 11. It is deeply optimised with intelligent scheduling of CPU, GPU and memory when performance is required. RAM Boost memory compression technology expands virtual memory, so 12GB memory can be used like 18GB memory for smoother performance. Other optimisations such as Magic Write 2.0 and Touch Choreographer bring stable disk read/write performance and optimised battery performance respectively.
Pricing and availability
The RedMagic 6 and RedMagic 6 Pro will be available to pre-order starting April 9. Pre-order customers will also stand a chance to receive a free pair of RedMagic TWS Bluetooth earphones. The RedMagic 6, priced at $599 (Dh2,200.13) and the RedMagic 6 Pro priced at $699 (Dh2,567.43) will be available for open sale starting April 15.
