The Red Magic 6R is Nubia's most recent gaming smartphone. It isn't a significant step forward from the Red Magic 6 and Red Magic 6 Pro, but it has a lot thinner body and a more widely attractive appearance, ditching some of the gaming aesthetics in the process.
The Snapdragon 888 is paired with either 8GB or 12GB RAM in the Nubia Red Magic 6R. The display is an AMOLED of 6.67" with a refreshing rate of 144Hz, with a punch hole in the middle. There are touch sensors on the shoulder triggers that allow a 400Hz touch sampling rate for the physical keys, like in the Redmi K40 Gaming.
The Red Magic 6R has the same 64MP main and 8MP ultrawide cameras as the 6 and 6 Pro but adds a 2MP depth snapper and a 5MP macro camera
The selfie camera has also been improved to 16MP from 8MP on previous generations.
The 4,200 mAh battery, which charges at up to 55W in China and 30W on the worldwide edition, is one of the most significant flaws in the Nubia Red Magic 6R. While those are respectable figures, they pale in comparison to the Red Magic 6's 5,050mAh battery, which delivered 66W across the board, not to mention the Pro's 120W in China.
