RedMagic 7S Pro gaming phone is official with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, 120Hz OLED display and under-display camera

While some phones can be rather bland in appearance, that’s a comment that could never be applied to the new RedMagic 7S Pro with its new Mercury Edition and Bumblebee Transformers colorways demanding your attention from the start. Powered by Qualcomm’s all-new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and featuring a 120Hz OLED display, the RedMagic 7S Pro has been dubbed the “God of Frame Rate” in China. Join us after the break to find out why.

Launched in 12/256GB, 16/512GB, and 18GB/1TB configurations, the RedMagic 7S Pro also comes equipped with a Red Core 1 processor that takes care of audio, light, and vibration tasks. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset offers a 10% performance improvement and a 30% reduction in power consumption over its predecessor, and is further aided by RedMagic’s new ICE 10.0 cooling system whose Integrated turbofan has a new shark fin vortex duct. The position of the air intake has been changed to produce a 16% increase in airflow while being 4dB quieter than the previous model. There’s also a graphene heat storage layer that lowers temperatures by 2° Celsius, which will come in handy during those extended Call of Duty Mobile sessions.

The large 6.8-inch AMOLED display has FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and covers the 16MP front camera, meaning there’s no punch-hole cutout to be seen on the RedMagic 7S Pro. Speaking of cameras, there’s a trio of sensors consisting of a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP that will cover macro or FoV functions (RedMagic’s press release didn’t). not precised).

There’s a 5,000mAh battery which is a bit smaller than that found on the Asus ROG Phone 7, but benefits from 135W wired charging which fills the battery to 100 per cent in just 15 minutes.

Game Features

The shoulder triggers have been upgraded from 500Hz to 520Hz to enable fast response times as low as 5.4ms, there’s also a Game Boost Switch button as well as the Game Space feature. The all-important RBG light strip is present, and Magic OS 5.5 has the first virtual host in gaming phones for live-streaming games which is called Mora.

Lastly, the RedMagic 7S Pro will be available in Dark Night, Deuterium Transparent Shadow, Silver Wing Edition, and Bumblebee Transformers Edition colorways.
