Nubia president already unveiled that the upcoming Nubia Red magic 5G will feature a 144 Hz screen and rear triple-cam setup and his latest spoiler now shows that the handheld will benefit from 80 W ultra-fast charging. Other rumored specs include a Snapdragon 865 SoC and up to 16 GB RAM.

Nubia will soon launch a 5G variant for its popular Red Magic gaming smartphone lineup, and the leaks up until now point to a very impressive list of specs. First, we found out about the 144 Hz AMOLED display, which apparently is the new standard for gaming smartphones. It is not really clear if this will make that much of a big difference, since the upcoming handheld will also integrate low-latency screencast capabilities, making it easy to play on larger screens as demonstrated by Nubia president Ni Fei last week. To keep fans hyped up, Fei recently posted a screencap with some impressive battery stats.

Even though we do not really get to see the capacity of the battery, a current of 9.6 amperes combined with a voltage of 8.4 volts reveal that the wired charger will allow for 80 W power flows via the USB PD standard. For reference, the fastest charger available right now comes from Oppo’s Reno Ace model with 65 W SuperVOOC charging. Nubia promises quite a bit faster charging at 80 W, yet later this year we are also supposed to get a 100 W version from Xiaomi, plus a 120 W charger from Vivo.

Other rumored specs for the upcoming Nubia Red Magic 5G include a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 865 SoC coupled with as mucha s 16 GB of RAM, a triple-cam setup on the back and a dual-mode 5G modem. More info about this model will most likely be unveiled at MWC next month.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
