5 reasons why the REDMAGIC 7 is a sublime gaming phone
(Pocket-lint) – Gaming phones are more popular than ever, not least because mobile games are becoming so sophisticated they’re often indistinguishable from their console versions, and phone makers need to keep up with rapid improvements in graphics.
That’s why Nubia is so proud of the new REDMAGIC 7, the latest in its line of gaming phones. In fact, it might just be the best gaming phone ever – here are five reasons why it’s so impressive. If you like the look of the phone, be sure to grab your early bird voucher for $/€/£1.99 to get $/€/£20 the REDMAGIC 7 when it becomes available – get your voucher here!
The REDMAGIC 7 features the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset to ensure it has cutting-edge processing power to ensure you never experience slow transitions, and with up to 18GB of RAM on board depending on which model you opt for, you’ll be amazed at how quickly it can move – which is why Nubia says it can help you fast forward to victory.
You can also get up to 256GB of storage to ensure even the biggest games don’t fill up your phone, letting you download all your favorite titles at once. It’s a brilliant package that can absolutely rip the most graphically demanding builds like Genshin Impact and Call of Duty Mobile.
Part of what keeps the REDMAGIC 7 at such a high level is that it has an active air cooling system, which is part of its ICE 8.0 multi-dimensional cooling system – something very few phones can match, and it’s a meaty upgrade over Nubia’s last phone, with 35 per cent more air intake through a duct at the back of the phone.
When the air enters this duct, it passes through a cooling air duct, a high conductivity copper foil, a gel, a thermally conductive rare earth gel, a vapor chamber, a central frame, a graphite sheet and finally reaches the screen, for maximum cooling.
The use of composite graphene and other materials also keeps the phone as cool as possible, while the phone also incorporates a TurboFan system to keep airflow as efficient as possible. On the SUPERNOVA version of the phone, the fan blades are even transparent, to ensure that its RGB lighting can also produce stunning effects while you game.
While staying cool is a great attribute in a gaming phone, you’ll also want to make sure you’re able to play your games on the best screen possible, which the REDMAGIC 7 has to offer. Its super-bright 6.8-inch (17.27cm, 111.6cm²) AMOLED display has a massive 165Hz refresh rate to ensure motion is as smooth as possible.
This is ideal for fast reaction times and responsiveness, and with a 720Hz touch sampling rate, your inputs will always register instantly as you make them. Color accuracy is absolutely excellent and with 700 nits of brightness, you’ll always be able to see what you’re doing in key moments.
Plus, the display is razor-sharp thanks to Full HD 1080 x 2400 pixel resolution, meaning you’ll be able to spot your in-game opponents even from long distances.
Since games can often be power-hungry, the REDMAGIC features a 4500mAh dual-cell battery system that provides incredibly fast charging when you need it via the included 65W GaN charger.
This means you can boot up super fast and the air cooling will keep your phone from getting too hot while it’s charging. This is something that even non-gaming phones often suffer from.
The REDMAGIC 7 has amazing 500Hz tactile sampling shoulder trigger buttons for games that have more involved control schemes, which work flawlessly, and the phone’s operating system is also tailor-made to be perfect for gamers.
It lets you easily view and make new captures, set game-specific reminders to make sure you don’t miss any events, and even has timer settings to make sure you know when you can use abilities again. game after cooling.
Along with all these amazing features, the phone also comes in three different gorgeous colors to make sure you can choose the one that suits you the best. The REDMAGIC 7 launched on February 22 and is available for purchase from March 10, so be sure to pick one up if you want to step up your mobile game! Also, keep an eye out for the next few months as Nubia will soon launch the REDMAGIC Pro.
REDMAGIC will also be hosting a gaming competition from March 4-6, and voting for the winning team will give you a chance to win a REDMAGIC 7 for yourself – learn more here.
