Nubia President and co-founder Ni Fei had revealed earlier this month that the company's next flagship gaming smartphone will come equipped with a 144Hz refresh rate screen. Fei today shared a new post on Weibo, revealing yet another key feature of the upcoming flagship.
The photo posted by Fei on Weibo shows an upcoming Nubia phone supporting 9.6A of charging current at 8.4 volts. This means the phone will offer 80W fast charging using the USB PD protocol. The phone shown in the photo is expected to debut as the Nubia Red Magic 5G sometime later this year.
OPPO's Reno Ace is currently the world's fastest charging smartphone, although Xiaomi's upcoming Mi 10 Pro is expected to soon snatch that title from it. The upcoming Xiaomi flagship will support up to 66W charging speeds. OPPO's upcoming flagship phone, the Find X2 is also likely to support the same 65W Super VOOC fast charging technology as the Reno Ace.
The Red Magic 3S is a surprisingly good gaming smartphone that is powered by a fast Snapdragon 855+ processor and boasts an ultra-smooth 90Hz AMOLED display. Thanks to its massive 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging, you won't have to worry about running out of juice while playing games. You also get customizable Pro Triggers and an innovative cooling solution that combines liquid cooling with an internal fan.
