Snapdragon 888+ powered RedMagic 6S Pro gaming phone with 165Hz display and RGB cooling fan
Nubia’s line of RedMagic gaming smartphones have always been a good option for those looking for a powerful smartphone with a solid spec sheet to go with it. The latest of them is no different: the RedMagic 6S Pro.
RedMagic 6S Pro Specifications
Immediately you will notice a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ system on chip under the hood as one of its main features. It’s the most powerful SoC available today, and it’s already on other gaming devices like the Asus ROG Phone 5S. On the RedMagic 6S Pro, the Snapdragon 888+ is paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. An integrated RGB turbo fan and vapor chamber cooling system provide temperature control.
It also has a pretty decent display, with the 6.8-inch FHD + AMOLED display capable of a 165Hz refresh rate, the highest refresh rate on a smartphone currently (although the RedMagic 6 was the first to reach 165 Hz). Nubia also gave it a 720Hz touch sampling rate for a response time of just under 8ms. That’s not to say it’s just for gaming, as Nubia also claims 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut. On the back, there’s a touchpad called the M key that can be configured, while you also get two shoulder triggers.
As for the camera, you get a triple camera setup on the back with a 64 MP main shooter flanked by an 8 MP ultra-wide camera and a 2 MP macro lens. Meanwhile, there is an 8MP selfie camera on the front. Nubia also integrated a three mic system for better sound, as well as stereo speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack. You’ll also be happy to find a decently sized 5,050mAh battery with 66W fast charging. You can also power your phone directly from the wall via the charge separation feature, which bypass your battery completely to improve runtime. battery life.
Other features include an under-screen fingerprint sensor with heart rate detection, support for 5G, WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.1 as well as RedMagic OS 4.0 based on Android 11. The RedMagic 6S Pro is available in standard black or with a special transparent back.

However, it is not yet clear whether or not it will come to Malaysia, as it will first launch in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau and Singapore in the Asia-Pacific region at this time. Also, since it won’t be launching in Malaysia on the 27th, there is also no local price, although we know how much it will cost elsewhere.
