Did the 144Hz display of the RedMagic 5G catch your interest when it was announced a month ago? If so, you’ll be able to buy one this month.

The RedMagic 5G is launching globally on April 21st after making its debut in China last month. Pricing will start at $579/€579/£539 for the model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage, while the 12GB/256GB version will cost $649/€649/£599.

Each day leading up to April 21st, 100 people can buy a RedMagic 5G Blueprint for $5.79. This guarantees that you can buy a RedMagic 5G once it launches and gets you a voucher worth up to $50 off your purchase.

The RedMagic 5G is a new gaming phone with the world’s first 144Hz display. That screen is a 6.65-inch AMOLED panel that also includes an in-display fingerprint sensor and 240Hz touch sampling.

As you might expect from a high-end gaming phone, the RedMagic 5G includes a Snapdragon 865 processor as well as up to 12GB of speedy LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage, which is 83% faster than the previous generation. There’s a 4500mAh battery powering the RedMagic 5G, and while an 18W charger is included in the box, you’ll be able to buy a 55W charger separately to get you powered up and gaming more quickly.

Another highlight feature of the RedMagic 5G is its built-in shoulder trigger buttons with 300Hz touch refresh rate and 2ms touch delay to better emulate gaming with a controller. There’s also a new Active Liquid-Cooling with Turbo Fan 3.0 setup with 30% better air flow volume, and this helps to make the RedMagic 5G up to 200% cooler than previous RedMagic phones.

Rounding out the RedMagic 5G’s spec list are dual stereo speakers; a triple rear camera setup with a 64MP main camera with Sony IMX686 sensor, 8MP ultra wide cam, and 2MP macro camera; and a 12MP selfie cam. And to help ensure that the RedMagic 5G has gamer cred, it’s got a customizable RGB light on the back.
