ZTE’s Nubia offshoot has finally launched its highly anticipated gaming phone – the Red Magic 5G. The objective behind making this phone was simple – cram the most powerful hardware possible into a frame that looks cool and is functional as well. And to be fair, this one looks like a success story.

Red Magic 5G is the world’s first phone to feature a 144Hz refresh rate AMOLED display, and also has capacitive shoulder buttons for that console controller vibe. And oh, this phone has a dedicated fan for heat management, something no other smartphone out there can boast off.

Here are the phone’s key specifications:

  • 6.65-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate
  • Triple rear cameras (64-megapixel main + 8-megapixel wide-angle + 2-megapixel macro)
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC
  • Up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM
  • Up to 256GB UFS 3.0 storage
  • 4,500mAh battery with 55W charging

Nubia Red Magic 5G comes in Black, Mars Red, Cyber Neon, as well as a Transparent Edition. It starts at CNY3,799 (approximately $540) and is now up for pre-order in China, but there is no word on its international availability.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
