Nubia Play 5G now official with Snapdragon 765G, 144Hz refresh rate, 5100mAh battery


We all know Nubia because of its powerful gaming smartphones, specifically its Red Magic line. This time, however, the brand is expanding in a new category with the release of the newest Nubia Play 5G.

Unlike the Red Magic, and in contrary to its name, the Nubia Play 5G is not a gaming smartphone. But don’t worry it still has competitive specs for a midrange device.

To start, it features a 6.55-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with an impressive 144Hz refresh rate. It also has an in-display fingerprint scanner and comes with a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Unfortunately, Nubia ditched the more commonly used notch or punch-hole display to a rather obsolete clear cut bezel at the top to house the front camera.


Under the hood, the Nubia Play 5G comes powered by a Snapdragon 765 SoC, a 6 or 8GB of RAM, and 128 or 256GB UFS 2.1 storage. Moreover, it has a 5G support and runs the latest Android 10 with NubiaUI 8.0.

In terms of photography, the smartphone is highly capable with its quad-camera setup. There’s a 48-megapixel Sony IMX582 main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and two 2-megapixel cameras for macro and depth of field. Meanwhile, it has a 12-megapixel front camera. Another great feature of the Nuba Play 5G is its large 5,100 mAh battery which supports a fast 30W wired charging.

Meanwhile, no word on the pricing and availability of Nubia Play 5G in the Philippines. So stay tuned for more updates.
