The latest gaming smartphone from Nubia has a fan equipped with RGB system and ten layers of cooling

If you’re the type of gamer who won’t rest until every last component is equipped with RGB lighting, right down to the case fans in their PC, then I have a smartphone for you. Nubia just launched its RedMagic 7S Pro gaming smartphone internationally, and like last year’s RedMagic 6S Pro, some models feature transparent back panels to let you see their internal RGB-equipped fans. These fans aren’t just for show, and they can spin at up to 20,000 RPM to keep the phone’s internals cool as part of what Nubia calls a “ten-layer multi-dimensional cooling system.”

The phones are a mid-year update to RedMagic 7 that was released in February, indicating that there was enough interest in these phones to warrant multiple releases each year. Like Asus’s ROG range of phones or Xiaomi’s Black Shark range, these are phones designed first and foremost for gaming, taking other smartphone concerns like camera quality more than a back seat. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach, but there is clearly a huge market out there.

The RedMagic 7S Pro’s interior is as focused on gaming as its flashy designs might suggest. It’s equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset (an upgrade over the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 found in the non-S RedMagic 7), and up to 18GB of RAM with 512GB of storage. Nubia says the phone’s cooling system runs quieter and has better airflow than its predecessor.

There are a pair of shoulder triggers to act as additional buttons while gaming, and the dual tactile vibration motors that Nubia advertises are optimized for gaming. The RedMagic 7S Pro also features a “game-specific chip” called the Red Core 1, which Nubia says is a coprocessor that handles sound, RGB lighting, and haptic feedback. Since this is a gaming phone where low latency is paramount, the phone features a 3.5mm jack for wired headphones.

In terms of traditional phone specifications, the 7S Pro is equipped with a 6.8-inch 120Hz 1080p OLED display with a 16MP camera under the display. It has a 5000 mAh battery that can be charged up to 65 watts on the international model (less than half of the 135 watt battery that charges GSMArena Reports are available in Chinese version). On the back there are three cameras, a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP macro.

The RedMagic 7S Pro was announced for the Chinese market earlier this month, but soon it will be available for purchase in the US. Prices start at $729 (€779, £669) for the Obsidian version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and go up to $899 (€949, £809) for the Mercury and Supernova models with 18GB of RAM. Random, 512GB of storage, and that’s all important RGB fans. The RedMagic 7S Pro will go on sale starting August 9th via Amazon and Nubia’s website. There is no sign that the non-Pro RedMagic 7S launched in China is getting an international version.
