Red Magic 4: Nubia executive hints at 144Hz spec for this 2020 gaming phone
Nubia makes a series of gaming smartphones called Red Magic. Its 2019 iteration was particularly interesting as it offered models with the Snapdragon 855 and 855+ processors. These devices also had screens with 90Hz refresh rates. However, a post from a brand executive indicates that this may be upgraded considerably in an upcoming generation.
Ni Fei did this by uploading an image that appears to depict a setting within a phone's UI that can turn a certain value up to 144Hz. In addition, selecting this option results in the appearance of an appropriate icon in the device's status bar, a UI tweak that might be right at home in a gaming device. The screen also shows 5G connectivity.
On the other hand, this feature is described as still "in testing". Therefore, it just may not make it to a successor for the Red Magic 3 (or 3S). However, should Nubia succeed in developing it in time, it would have a potentially killer spec in a year for which 120Hz is currently being touted as the new standard in display technology.
