A couple of days ago, Nubia launched the successor of last year’s Red Magic 5 series, the Red Magic 6 and Red Magic 6 Pro. The smartphone series includes a ton of great features like 165Hz Refresh Rate, Snapdragon 888 SoC, Dual-Shoulder Buttons, 120-watt Fast Charging etc.
We already knew that a device with 120-watt power in-take can do great things, but we didn’t have the numbers. Although Red Magic did claim while launch that the smartphone can be charged from 0-100% within 17 minutes, but we didn’t think that the actual numbers will be much less than the claimed number.
A Chinese blogger named Zhong Wenze put a video on YouTube showing off the new Red Magic 6 Pro charging capability. According to video, the Red Magic charged from 3-100% in just 12 minutes. That is something no one expected, as we already take the ±10-20% difference from the claimed number, most of the time, the -ve difference but in this case surprising +ve difference.
Red Magic 6 and Red Magic 6 Pro Specs
In case you missed the Red Magic 6 series specifications. Both Red Magic 6 and 6 Pro features a 6.8-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 165 Hz, 500Hz single finger touch sampling rate, 360Hz multi-finger touch sampling rate. We have never seen these types of display specifications in any of the previous smartphones.
Under the hood, the smartphones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM (18 GB in case of 6 Pro) and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 onboard storage (512 GB in case of 6 Pro). The Snapdragon 888 is an octa-core SoC, equipped with Adreno 660 GPU for better graphical performance. Other than that the Red Magic 6 Pro also includes a 7-layer multi-dimensional cooling system with a faster 20,000 rpm high-speed centrifugal fan.
In the camera department, the Red Magic 6 series packs a similar triple camera setup at the rear and a single 8-megapixel camera located at the top bezel for selfies. The triple rear camera setup includes a primary 64-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/1.8, a secondary 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor with an aperture of f/2.0 and a viewing angle of 120-degrees, and then finally a 8-megapixel macro sensor.
The smartphones are fueled with 5050 mAh battery with fast-charging support up to 66-watt and 120-watt charging brick in Red Magic 6 and 6 Pro respectively. The devices run on Redmagic 4.0 on top of Android 11.
