Redmagic 7 Pro Sports Dedicated Gaming Chip and Under-Display Camera
Nubia has announced its new Redmagic 7 Pro flagship gaming phone for international markets. It builds on the already high-end specs of the Redmagic 7 with improvements to the display, battery, and gaming performance. The full-HD AMOLED display now fully hides the front camera using under-display camera technology, offering an uninterrupted all-display experience. The refresh rate takes a slight hit, though, from 165 to 120 Hz. A unique new chip that Nubia calls Red Core 1 is designed to boost gaming performance by handling certain audio, haptic feedback, and cosmetic lighting functions. This frees the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip to devote more processing power to core gaming performance. Nubia has also enlarged the battery to 5,000. A "7th gen" fingerprint sensor doubles as a heart-rate sensor. Most other features are similar to the RedMagic 7, including 65W fast charging (65W charger included), active cooling system with 20,000 RPM fan, shoulder buttons, RGB lighting effects, Wi-Fi 6, 3.5mm headset jack, 64 megapixel camera, and NFC. Support for US 4G and 5G networks appears to be limited (LTE in bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 26, 41, and 66, plus 5G in bands 41 and 77). It comes standard with 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The base version is Obsidian (black) with 256 GB storage for $799. A step-up "Supernova" version has 512 GB storage, a transparent back, and RGB lighting in the fan. It will run $899. The Redmagic 7 Pro launches April 27th, with "an early bird offer from April 22". It will be available directly from the Redmagic web site.
