While OnePlus CEO Pete Lau already confirmed that the company’s next major phones — presumably the OnePlus 8 — will feature screens with a refresh rate of 120Hz, the Nubia gaming team is on their own prepping a strong device – the unnamed Nubia Red Magic 5G that could take gaming to the next level.
Apparently teasing its next Nubia Red Magic 5G smartphone ( Red Magic 4 or Red Magic 5), Nubia CEO Ni Fei confirmed via a Weibo post that the upcoming smartphone will support a 144Hz refresh rate, up from the 90Hz and 120Hz supported by the Red Magic 3, Oneplus 7 and ROG phone 2. Similar to the Oneplus 7, users will be able to switch between refresh rate options such as 60Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz, and a maximum of 144Hz.
It is not exactly clear when the firm will unveil said smartphone, however, it does confirm it will come with support for the blazing 5G connectivity. The Ceo had earlier confirmed that the Nubia Red Magic 4 or Red Magic 5 will come with a trio of cameras on the back and will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 chipset, perhaps, with a Snapdragon X55 modem.

The firm has yet to release any definite launch date for the next Nubia Red Magic gaming phone, but that should be far off, given that the teasers are already flying in.
