On Tuesday, on the heels of releasing the world's first gaming phone with a built-in fan, Chinese phone maker Nubia began pre-ordering for its new gaming phone, the RedMagic 5G. The handset is due to be released worldwide on April 21.
The RedMagic 5 G appears to lay claim to being the first mass-produced phone to come with a refresh rate of 144Hz - a step-up from the 90Hz display seen on the Red Magic 3 line last year. It comes in two variants: 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, which costs $579 (€579, £539), or $649 (€649, £599) for 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage.
The RedMagic 5 G has an AMOLED display of 6.65 inches, and is powered by the 865 Snapdragon processor. It comes with the X55 modem which, as its name suggests, means it has 5 G capabilities. Other features include an upgraded fan cooling system, an 18-watt charger, and a 4-500 mAh battery that is smaller than its predecessor's one.
The RedMagic 3, launched in 2019, was the first gaming phone to come with a built-in fan after taking inspiration from a gaming PC. It uses a fan combined with a liquid refrigeration system to keep the device from getting too hot.
