The latest Red Magic gaming phones from Chinese device maker Nubia are stuffed to the gills with premium specs. The new Red Magic 7S and Red Magic 7S Pro feature 6.8 inch HD+ AMOLED displays with high screen refresh rates and touch sampling rates, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processors, support for lots of RAM and storage, and a cooling system that includes a fan.

The phones are up for pre-order now in China, and the Red Magic 7S Pro is set to go on sale worldwide in August.

A few things help that model earn the Pro in its name, including an under-display camera, enhanced cooling, a larger battery, faster charging, and support for a little more memory and storage if you opt for the highest-end configurations.

But honestly, both versions of the phone have features that are hard not to describe as overkill. Nubia ships both models with a 165 watt GaN tech fast charger, for example, even though the Red Magic 7S “only” supports 120W fast charging and the 7S Pro tops out at 135W charging.

The Red Magic 7S has a 165 Hz display with a 720 Hz touch sampling rate, while the Pro model has a 120 Hz screen with a 960 Hz touch sampling rate.

And the Red Magic 7S supports up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, while the Red Magic 7S Pro is available with up to 18GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

The company will announce global launch details for the Red Magic 7S Pro on July 26th and begin taking pre-orders August 2nd, and offer it generally starting August 9, 2022.

While international pricing hasn’t been announced yet, the company is selling the entry-level Red Magic 7S with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for about $600 in China, while the Red Magic 7S Pro starts at about $775 for a 12GB/256GB model. I’d expect international pricing to be at least a little higher than that.
