Nubia Red Magic 7 gaming phone is coming next week
Nubia has announced that it will launch its next generation gaming phone, the Red Magic 7, on February 17.
The ZTE-associated smartphone brand, which specializes in custom-built phones for intensive gaming, took to Chinese social network Weibo to reveal a Feb. 17 announcement.
According to the language (Google Translated) used in the message, we are expecting a series of phones under the Red Magic 7 banner.
Last year saw the launch of the Red Magic 6, Redmagic 6 Pro, affordable Redmagic 6R and Redmagic 6S Pro.
The latter is, in this writer’s humble opinion, the best all-around gaming phone on the market right now, offering speedy specs and precise physics controls in a design that isn’t irredeemably obnoxious. And you’ll know that last point is quite the feat if you know anything about the dedicated gaming phone market.
We’re excited to see what Nubia can do with its batch of 2022 releases. So far, Nubia hasn’t mentioned any official specifications for the Red Magic 7 family, but there have been some leaks and tips.
It seems likely there will be a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, along with the eye-catching potential of a 165W charger. Yes, you read that right.
165W would definitely be the fastest mobile charging standard we’ve ever seen if true. Which, judging by various sources and Nubia’s own clues, seems to be the case.
Other leaks suggest we might be in line for an under-display selfie camera. Previous Nubia phones, like the aforementioned Red Magic 6S Pro, opted for a chunky front bezel to incorporate a selfie camera without getting in the way of in-game content (a cardinal sin). For the next generation, we could have a smaller device without resorting to an annoying notch.
