Nubia has hyped its 2021 flagship-grade gaming phone with a new spec: ultra-fast 120-watt (W) charging. A new leak suggests that there will be 2 variants of the device, only 1 of which will have the new technology. The putative Snapdragon 888-powered series is also now rumored to have other exciting features such as color-changing glass rear panels.

Nubia has already confirmed that the RedMagic 5G will be replaced with a 2021 generation, probably to be called the 6. It will integrate the fancy 120W charging technology only available to a handful of phones, including the iQOO 7 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, thus far. However, it seems this spec might be reserved for a more expensive variant in the upcoming gaming phone.

The well-known leaker Digital Chat Station has reportedly found 2 new Nubia devices called the NX669J and NX669J-P. Of these, the latter is indeed registered as capable of charging at up to 120W. The former, on the other hand, has a 66W top rate.

Therefore, these phones might indeed be the RedMagic 6, accompanied for the first time by a more powerful variant. It is currently thought to be called the 6 Pro at launch.

One or both of these options has also now leaked with a unique rear panel inlaid with a glowing logo that can be switched on and off at the touch of a physical button.

This new feature might be based on electrochromic technology, which allows a glass panel to shift from one color to another in response to the current applied to it. Now, it seems it will be used to add a particularly futuristic cosmetic tweak to this upcoming gaming phone (or phones).

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.
