Among the rare mobiles dedicated to gamers, here is the Nubia Red Magic 5G. Just launched in France, this supercharged smartphone has a high refresh rate and an efficient cooling system.

In the very small circle of smartphone manufacturers for gamers, here is Nubia with its Red Magic 5G . Futura had already mentioned the supercharged models like the Asus ROG Phone 2, the Razer Phone 2, or the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 and its Pro version.

Unlike these models with a racy aesthetic and often with a light signature reminiscent of the gaming atmosphere, the RedMagic 5G is much less aggressive visually. Apart from its logos which can light up, the mobile is much more discreet and versatile.

Despite its contained price (€ 579 for the 8GB + 128GB Eclipse Black model and € 649 for the 12GB + 256GB Pulse model), the RedMagic 5G is armed to rub shoulders with its direct competitors. It has the distinction of being the only mobile with a 6.6-inch screen delivering an unprecedented display refresh of 144 Hz, while its competitors peak at 120 Hz. A frequency that will reveal its relevance in the most popular games. more muscular.

Under this screen, a Snapdragon 865 processor supported by 8 or 12 GB of RAM is available. The Internet storage of the Nubia Red Magic 5G starts at 128 GB and a maximum of 256 GB. With its almost all-purpose appearance, it is not because the smartphone is dedicated to games that it is not intended for all audiences. 

Besides, its photo part has not been ignored, as is often the case on models for gamers. On its back, the device has three modules. The main one has a 64-megapixel sensor. An 8-megapixel wide-angle lens is also available, as well as a third 2-megapixel sensor dedicated to the depth of field. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel selfie sensor.
