Nubia Red Magic 6 is a successor of the Red Magic 5 series which was highly popular in 2020. Nubia has upgraded the Red Magic 6 series by pushing the refresh rate from 144Hz to 165Hz  making it the first smartphone to have such a high refresh rate screen. With the launch of Red Magic 6, ZTE also launched their Pro version of the phone; Nubia Red Magic 6 Pro. Also, Asus has launched its three gaming smartphones; ROG Phone 5, ROG Phone 5 Pro, and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. Let us know about the specs, availability, and expected price of the Nubia Red Magic 6 in Nepal

Nubia Red Magic 6 Overview

Display and Design

Here for the display, the Nubia Red Magic 6 offers a huge 6.8 inches AMOLED panel that has a razor-sharp resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The refresh rate of 165 Hz is the highest for now with an imposing aspect ratio of 20:9. Also, the touch sampling rate of up to 500Hz will take your gaming experience to the next height. It comes with a peak brightness of 630 nits, DCI-P3, and 10- Bit of color depth, therefore, offers you some of the most stunning visuals in mobile gaming. The device is also protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass. It comes with SGS’s anti-smear and Eye care certifications to ensure you outstand the competitive edge and win multiple games without hurting your eyes.

Comparing to previous phones from the Red magic 5-series, Nubia has not upgraded much in terms of design. Like its predecessor, the triple camera stands out in a vertically extended camera module. It has got an appealing design that looks equally powerful and a perfect grip to hold it. The Red magic logo is perfectly smashed on the lowermost end of the camera module. The LED flash can be spotted just beneath the camera within the same camera module. There is a tiny circular notch right-aligned at the top where it accommodates its selfie shooter. The device features the under-display and the optical fingerprint scanner. The device is available in two different colors-Eclipse Black, Aurora

Performance and Memory

Nubia Red Magic 6 Processor

Moving on to the processor, the device ships with the latest Snapdragon 888 5G from Qualcomm. The graphics in this device is handled by the Adreno 660 GPU. No doubt, the combination of these two places Red Magic 6 as a powerful gaming device. There is also a Revolutionary Hybrid Cooling system to protect your device from overheating during heavy gaming. Also, the Dual-Core Ice Block provides dual fans and semiconductors: now no need to worry about any heating issue on this device. The phone will ship with Redmagic 4.0 that is based on Android 11.

The rear camera setup will help you capture your best moments with friends and family. For capturing selfies and making video calls, there is an 8MP front shooter available. It also supports a  good-quality video recording where it can record 8K video at 30fps, 4k video up to 60fps, and 1080p video up to 240fps.
