Gaming Smartphone: This Phone has more Memory than most of your PCs

Nubia’s RedMagic smartphones are designed for gaming.

18.0 GB of RAM, a 165 Hertz display and a fan with RGB lighting. That sounds like a real gaming PC, but far from it: It’s not even about a gaming notebook, we’re talking about a smartphone.

Yes, you read that right! A smartphone that has more RAM than most of you have in the PCs. At least that is confirmed by the data from our memory survey. Almost 57 percent said they had installed 16.0 GB or less.

The prevalence of 32.0 GB of RAM is clearly increasing among Globe Live Media readers, but 16.0 GB are still ahead.

According to Steam’s latest hardware and software survey, just over eleven percent of the participants have more than 16.0 GB of RAM in their computers.

Fan with 20,000 revolutions per minute

Back to the smartphone. This is the Transparent Edition of the Nubia RedMagic 6 Pro. The focus of the entire RedMagic 6 series is mobile gaming.

Nubia not only uses a lot of RAM, but also powerful cooling systems to keep the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 (SoC) in check:

The Nubia RedMagic 6 is available in several configurations:

  • Basic: 8.0 GB LPDDR5, 128.0 GB permanent memory, 18,000 RPM, 5,050 mAh
  • Pro: 12.0 GByte LPDDR5, 128.0 GByte permanent memory, 20,000 RPM, 4,500 mAh
  • Pro Transparent Edition: 16.0 / 18.0 GB LPDDR5, 256.0 / 512.0 GB permanent memory, 20,000 RPM, 4,500 mAh

Nubia promises to keep the temperatures significantly lower than in the previous models thanks to the fast fan and a vapor chamber. Despite the 20,000 revolutions, the noise emission should be a maximum of 28 dB (which does not sound very plausible spontaneously).

The technical details of the Gaming smartphone

Qualcomm’s flagship SoC Snapdragon 888 includes an Adreno 660 graphics unit and a Kryo 680 CPU with four Cortex-A78 and four Cortex-A55 cores. There is also an integrated 5G modem and a dedicated AI processor. The connected LPDDR5 main memory clocks at up to 3,200 MHz.

The AMOELD display resolves with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and can switch between a refresh rate of 60, 90, 120, 144 and 165 Hertz depending on the app or game. Nubia specifies the maximum brightness of 630 cd / m² and promises to cover the full DCI-P3 color space.

A triple camera with 64 megapixels is supposed to provide chic pictures, plus an 8 MP wide-angle and a 2 MP macro sensor. The basis for bringing all the functions together is Android 11.

What does the RedMagic 6 cost?

Prices for the US market are not yet available, but the basic version of the RedMagic 6 costs around 584 USD in China. The maximum expansion stage of the Transparent Edition costs 1013 USD.

For the top model, there is at least one fan with RGB lighting, which should be clearly visible thanks to the transparent design.
