Nubia has launched a new gaming phone that features impressive specs that will appeal to more than just gamers.

A new phone that aims to offer the best specs for gaming has been released. Gaming phone company Nubia recently launched the Red Magic 5G – a gaming phone that boasts of the highest screen refresh rate and more, Wccftech reported. Here's what the new gaming phone offers:

As mentioned, it offers 144Hz refresh rates, which is considered the highest in the market at the moment. This is expected to result in super smooth graphics that could benefit games that support it.

The high refresh rate is accompanied by a 240Hz touch-sampling rate, which means interacting with the device will be as smooth as can be. Players won't have to worry about delays in touch responses, particularly when quick taps are crucial to gameplay.


The Red Magic 5G is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC, paired with the X55 modem for 5G connectivity. The device can be configured to feature between 8GB or 16GB of RAM. It comes with 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
