After releasing the Nubia Red Magic 5G as its first champion for the 2020 range of gaming smartphones, the Chinese company is gearing up to launch a new smartphone. It makes sense for a new device, after all, Qualcomm has just released the Snapdragon 865 Plus with 3.09Ghz clock. With the arrival of ROG Phone 3 and Lenovo Legion, Nubia wants to keep a competitive device that will not fall behind these competitors. The new smartphone will be called Red Magic 5S and the company wants to ensure that users will have enough reasons to pick it over the competition.
The Nubia Red Magic 5S will boast a 144Hz display just like its predecessor. The screen will also come with 240Hz touch sampling rate for precise inputs. However, this will not be the only way Red Magic 5s users will have to control games. The new gaming phone will also include two touch-sensitive shoulder buttons. Those controls will be more precise than the screen, after all, their touch sampling rate reaches a whopping 320Hz rate. According to the report, the Red Magic team engineered a dual-IC solution in an industry first.
The company’s CEO Ni Fei also revealed some details regarding the new cooling system. The smartphone will boast the first of its kind cooling system with silver. The material has a high thermal conductivity allowing Nubia to perfectly determine how the phone will eliminate all the heat and keep the Snapdragon 865+ performance at the max all time. Moreover, the phone will include the active cooling system with a built-in 15,000 rpm fan. This active cooling system is a recurring feature in the Nubia Red Magic series.
An interesting external cooling solution and everything you expect to find on a 2020 flagship
In addition to this whole set of cooling features, the company will even provide an external add-on named Wind Cooling Magic Box. The gadget has a larger fan so it can push more air with less noise and it connects to the silver layers inside the phone for best heat transfer. This particular accessory has two wired connections – USB-C with 30W Power Delivery charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack. These will be easily accessible when the phone is held horizontally.
The Nubia Red Magic 5S boasts the Snapdragon 865+ SoC with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 Storage. Moreover, the phone will even include a technology called “Magic Write” technology. It will optimize read and write speeds.
