Nubia has confirmed that its RedMagic series of premium Android gaming smartphones will get a new generation in 2021. This new device's first teaser reveals that its 4500mAh will be capable of charging by up to 120 watts (W). It is also likely to launch with the top-end Snapdragon 888 processor.

Nubia's CEO, Ni Fei, has announced a successor for the RedMagic 5G. It will thus be a gaming-phone from a  brand based on interesting properties such as an active cooling system, which is typically visible through the device's chassis throughout the series' history.

The executive has already started hyping this RedMagic 6 by also letting slip that it will come with an advanced charging standard compared to the 5G or 5S refresh. It will be delivered via a 120W power brick which will also apparently be based on gallium nitride (GaN) technology. Hopefully, this detail implies that the adapter will come in the box with every 6 unit sold.

Then again, this 2021 mobile gaming device will stick with the same 4500mAh capacity as the 5G/5S. Nubia has also yet to mention any screen upgrades for the phone, which could mean it might stay on the already-snappy FHD+/144Hz level of yesteryear. However, based on its predecessors, it is likely to debut with a Snapdragon 888 SoC.

In addition, the brand has not set a launch date for its upcoming 6 flagship. RedMagic has announced a New Year's discount for its 5G flagship, whereby a buyer can get US$60/€60/£60 off its normal $599 price-tag on the brand's international online store with a code (NY2021).

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
