The past few years have seen smartphone displays gain increasingly faster refresh rates that allow smoother scrolling and better handling of tasks like gaming. After Nubia'sfeatured a 144Hz refresh rate last year, the company is once again pushing the limits with a new 165Hz display on its RedMagic 6 Series.
The new 6.8-inch FHD Plus display will be available on both the RedMagic 6 and RedMagic 6 Pro. Built for gaming, both phones run on Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, feature "built-in shoulder trigger buttons" and a "multi-dimensional cooling system" that includes a vapor chamber and fan for ensuring it doesn't overheat even when in a marathon gaming session.
The company says that its phones also offer a single-finger touch sampling rate of 500Hz and a multifinger touch sampling rate of 360Hz, allowing for what it claims will be faster and more responsive presses and gaming.
Both devices will have three rear cameras with a 64-megapixel main shooter, as well as an 8-megapixel front sensor. Also present are a customizable RGB light, 3.5mm headphone jack, the ability to fast charge at up to 66 watts and 5G support.
Unlike the recently released gaming-focused, which has dual 3,000-mAh batteries, the RedMagic devices will feature a single 5,050-mAh battery.
Available for preorder on April 9, the RedMagic 6 will run $599 for a model with 12GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the 6 Pro will cost $699 for a version with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Both phones will go on sale on April 15.
