The Nubia RedMagic 6 and 6 Pro tout the fastest displays of any smartphone

Nubia continues to step up its gaming phones.

What you need to know

  • Nubia launches the RedMagic 6 Series Tencent edition in China.
  • They come with the first 165Hz displays to be featured on a smartphone as well as a 500Hz touch sampling rate.
  • The Tencent edition phones are exclusive to China, but Nubia is planning a global launch on March 16th.

Nubia has done it again. After launching the RedMagic 5G with the first 144Hz refresh rate display on a smartphone, Nubia decided to step things up again with the new Tencent edition RedMagic 6 Series smartphones. Developed alongside Tencent Games, the Red Magic 6 and Red Magic 6 Pro both feature jaw-dropping 165Hz displays, along with an impressive 500Hz touch sampling rate for instant interactions when gaming.

As a true 2021 flagship, the RedMagic smartphones come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, which will no doubt power many of the best phones for gamers launching this year. The standard RedMagic 6 and 6 Pro will come with 128GB of onboard storage, with 8GB and 12GB of RAM, respectively. With RedMagic OS 4.0 based on Android 11, the phones can boost their virtual memory to essentially make 12GB feel like 18GB, giving you more room to game and multitask.

Thanks to Nubia's Touch Choreographer technology, the 6.8" FHD+ AMOLED displays can switch between 60Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz, and 165Hz depending on the content being displayed.

Keeping the lights on is a 5050mAh battery with a 66W charging speed on the standard RedMagic 6, while the Pro variant comes with a 4500mAh battery. It seems strange to give the Pro model a smaller battery, but considering it nearly doubles the charging speed to 120W, battery life might not be much of an issue. Nubia claims the RedMagic Pro 6 can be fully charged in just 17 minutes.

The RedMagic 6 Series also uses some impressive cooling with its new ICE 6.0 Multi-dimensional Cooling System and built-in centrifugal fan. The system consists of a copper foil, a vapor chamber, and it takes advantage of the optimally designed chassis for heat dissipation.

The rear features a triple camera setup with a 64MP main sensor, 8MP ultrawide, and 2MP macro. It's likely the RedMagic 6 Series won't necessarily be known for its photo chops since the focus seems to lie in other departments with this gaming-centric phone, but it's still a decent setup. Of course, if you want good images from a gaming phone, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is a great option with its 108MP main sensor.

The Nubia RedMagic 6 Series will be available on March 11th in China, with a global launch set for March 16th.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

Review: The Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) is a truly moving Alexa speaker

This new Echo Show is a real head-turner. The smart speaker market has grown quite a bit since Amazon introduced the first Echo in late 2014. However, after introducing the first Echo Show in 2017, the evolution of smart screened devices hasn't progressed nearly so quickly. There have mostly been incremental updates to the devices put out by Amazon, Google, and others like Lenovo, adding bigger screens and (marginally) better speakers, but nothing has really moved the category forward. As it has done several times before, Amazon is poised to usher in the next paradigm shift in smart speaker tech with its latest Echo device, the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen). I've had the pleasure of using just about every Alexa and Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker over the past few years, so I feel well-suited to write this Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) review based on that background. I'm not going to get too far into the argument of which smart assistant is better — by now, you've

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Samsung's bes

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
