Nubia Play 5G is finally making its debut in the European market starting with Spain, but under a different name – Nubia Red Magic 5G Lite – and with slightly tweaked specs. As the name makes it abundantly clear, it is a watered-down version of the flagship Red Magic 5G gaming phone, but the Red Magic 5G Lite still packs quite a punch at a competitive price point.
It packs a 6.65-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Under the hood is the 5G-ready Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC paired with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. You get four cameras at the back, with the main snapper using a 48MP sensor.
The proprietary ICE2.5 Liquid Cooling Technology keeps things cool, while a 5,100mAh battery with 18W fast charging capability keeps the lights on. Here’s a quick look at the phone’s specifications:
