Nubia Red Magic 5G confirmed to have 144Hz display


Looks like the refresh rate war is coming to mobile phones. Nubia has confirmed that the Red Magic 5G will most likely have a 144Hz screen. It's the first gaming phone to have this feature, beating out other options that currently run at a maximum 120Hz.

Nubia CEO Ni Fei revealed this when he posted a screenshot on Weibo, which shows a settings menu with refresh rates of 60Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz, and 144Hz. He mentioned the Red Magic 5G and said that tests of the 144Hz mode were successful. The screenshot also shows an indicator for the refresh rate currently active, which can be useful to know so users can switch it to a lower refresh rate when necessary. It will also make sense for Nubia to include a way to configure the refresh rate depending on whether the user is gaming or not.


Besides that high refresh rate display, there are a few more things we also know about this device. Previously, Nubia had confirmed that the Red Magic 5G will (obviously) support 5G in non-Standalone mode, which means it'll detect 4G networks as well and adjust connection speeds accordingly. We also know that it will come equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset.

It's always nice to see technology advance, but whether you will be able to see any visible difference in 144Hz on a smartphone's screen is debatable. What do you think, is 144Hz reaching into overkill territory? Let us know what you think on our Facebook page and stay tuned to for more news.
