A full 18 GB of RAM and a display with a 165 Hz refresh rate should make the RedMagic 6 a gaming champion.
The RedMagic 6 is offered with up to 18 GB of RAM.
The RAM built into smartphones is constantly increasing. Many premium models are already available with 12 GB of RAM. The smartphone RedMagic 6 from manufacturer Nubia, which is aimed at gamers as a target group, with its 18 GB RAM even surpasses the equipment of many gaming PCs. They usually only have 16 GB of RAM, which is usually completely sufficient even for demanding games. But manufacturer Nubia doesn’t just want to boast when it comes to RAM, the AMOLED display with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels outperforms many competitors with a refresh rate of up to 165 Hz – as well as PC gaming monitors.
Fast chip, fan with 20,000 revolutions
The Snapdragon 888 from Qualcomm built into the RedMagic 6 Pro should also display the most demanding games with high frame rates. The SoC consists of a Prime Core that clocks at up to 2.84 GHz and three fast Cortex-A78 cores with up to 2.42 GHz. Four Cortex-A55 cores with a maximum of 1.8 GHz are also installed for simple tasks. In order to be able to cool this fast chip, the RedMagic 6 Pro relies on a fan with RGB lighting that works at up to 20,000 revolutions per minute. Compared to the previous model, this should allow significantly lower temperatures. It remains to be seen to what extent the high-speed fan interferes with gaming.
Nubia offers three versions of the RedMagic 6: The basic version has 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a 5050 mAh battery. The Pro version has 12 GB of RAM, 128 memory and a 4,500 mAh battery. If you choose the Pro Transparent Edition, you can choose between 16 or 18 GB RAM, 256 or 512 GB memory and a battery with 4,500 mAh. There is currently no information available about the prices of the models. In China, the basic version of the RedMagic 6 costs the equivalent of 490 euros, the top model with 18 GB of RAM costs the equivalent of 850 euros. It remains to be seen whether the devices will also be available in Germany.
