Red Magic, the gaming brand of Chinese smartphone maker Nubia, has announced on Weibo a new flagship display based on Samsung’s QD-OLED panel, weighing in at 49-inches with a 240Hz refresh rate and 4K resolution.


It’s a big-sized and dedicated gaming monitor called the Red Magic Realm, designed to compete with Samsung’s QD-OLED Odyssey G9 and it looks like it will be perfect for all ultra-wide gamer enthusiasts.

The announced specifications make it sound like a very worthwhile competitor to Samsung’s own flagship monitor. It features a 1800R curve for immersive viewing angles and a True Black 400 design. The resolution is 5120x1440p, meaning its graded as 4K. It offers 99% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and a 32:9 aspect ratio. According to Red Magic, it’s compatible with AMD Freesync and Nvidia’s G-Sync, and it boasts a 0.03ms response time.


Not only is it suitable for gamers who appreciate the ultra-wide perspective, but it may also be a good option for content creators who require extra real estate for multi-tasking. The display’s borders are also extremely thin, almost bezel-less in fact. The display controls can be found in a small panel at the front, just below the display.

Other features include the unique white-colour body and a long stand that enables the display to be tilted, adjusted and rotated for the perfect view. It also hs ARGB LEDs on the back of the monitor, and comes with a pair of built-in 5-watt speakers and a microphone port. In terms of connectivity, users will have a couple of HDMI 2.1 ports, a single DisplayPort 1.4, a headphone output, and a USB-C port with DisplayPort Alternate Mode and 90W reverse charging.


While Red Magic hasn’t yet given an official price tag, it promised that the 49-inch display will be cheaper than Samsung’s Odyssey G9, which costs around $2,000 at most retailers. It'll go on sale in China first, but it isn't clear when it will become available in other markets.

Red Magic said it will also launch a smaller 34-inch QD-OLED display in the coming months, but provided less details on its specifications. That said, other publications suggest it will likely have a 3440x1440 resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio, with a refresh rate of 175Hz.
