Redmagic 7 Pro Sports Dedicated Gaming Chip and Under-Display Camera

Apr 12, 2022, 7:00 AM   by Rich Brome

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.

The Nubia Red Magic 3S gaming phone will launch next week — October 16th — starting at $479. It has a faster processor (Snapdragon 855+) and storage (UFS 3.0) than original Red Magic 3, but the specs and design are otherwise almost identical. It has a 6.7-inch, full-HD OLED display with 90 Hz refresh rate, 240 Hz touch sampling rate, 5,000 mAh battery, shoulder buttons, liquid+air cooling with integrated fan, and a customizable light-up strip on the back. It also has a 48-megapixel Sony main camera, 3.5mm headset jack, fingerprint reader, and 27W fast charging. It does not have NFC, wireless charging, nor a memory card slot. It supports LTE 2/4/5/12/25/26/30/41/66 for US networks, giving it better support for AT&T's network than many other unlocked phones. The base version has 8 GB of RAM / 128 GB of storage, and is available in black or silver for $479 direct from the Red Magic web site. An upgraded "Cyber Shade" version has 12 GB RAM / 256 GB storage and a red/purple gradient design for $599.
