Nubia is at the forefront of the mobile gaming industry, which is continuously increasing. The firm has a history of breaking the mold, and its gaming phones follow suit. Almost every prior Red Magic release had something new and fascinating to offer, and the most recent Red Magic 6 is no exception.
However, this time there’s more than simply a beautiful built-in fan. The Red Magic 6 and Red Magic 6 Pro are the first smartphones that include a 165Hz display and a 500Hz single-finger touch sampling rate. We’ll have to wait and see how this affects battery life and whether gaming at 144Hz is possible, given how limited Android game support is above 60fps to begin with. The panel has also risen in size from 6.65″ to 6.8″. More is usually better in the gaming industry.
