Chinese manufacturer Nubia has just introduced its newest gamer smartphone with high-performance specifications, a focus on games and great differentials to stand out among the powerful competitors in the sector, such as the recently announced ROG Phone 3 and Lenovo Legion Duel.
The Red Magic 5S is a kind of slightly improved Red Magic 5G: it arrives with identical design, practically the same specifications and price, also including the same Snapdragon 865 chipset from the beginning of the year, but now with a subtle and important novelty in relation to memory speed and lower price for the most powerful variants.
Still offering the same options with 8 GB, 12 GB and up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, Nubia launches the Red Magic 5S with UFS 3.1 speed storage, updating the model from the beginning of the year that offered UFS 3.0 memory. Unfortunately, there is no upgrade of the chipset to the new and more powerful Snapdragon 865 Plus.
The flagship follows the same 6.65-inch Essport AMOLED display with a 144 Hz display for more fluid games and almost instantaneous response.
Nubia continues to maintain the same 320 Hz triggers to allow players to access programmable shortcuts in titles, allowing them to shoot, accelerate or perform different actions through the virtual buttons on the side.
The company offers an improved Game Space, with “several new advanced features to deliver the best gaming experience,” allowing for greater customization in each game to deliver the best performance.
The Red Magic 5S also comes with a three rear camera module with a 64 MP main lens, 4,500 mAh battery with the same 18W charger included in the box, but the smartphone has support for 55W fast charging if the user purchases such a charger. capacity separately.
Nubia also launches the Ice Dock, an accessory with USB-C connectivity that allows you to recharge and cool your smartphone to ensure hours of gameplay
