Nubia announced today (6) its new smartphone gamer, the Red Magic 6S Pro. The model arrives to update the devices unveiled by the manufacturer in the first half of this year. Unfortunately, there is no “standard” Red Magic 6S, but the 6S Pro still brings some interesting changes from its predecessor.
Visually, the smartphone doesn’t change from the previous ones. The main difference is that in the last generation, there was a special version with a transparent rear. In the new generation this already happens in the traditional model in an option called “Ghost”, which brings as an extra the cooling system with RGB LEDs. There is also a black color, which does not have the LEDs.
The phone is still finished in aluminum and glass, and still has the triggers on the side, adding a sensor on the back that can be used as a customizable button for use in games. The changes in this model are the adoption of Snapdragon 888+, a more efficient heat dissipation system, higher speed fans and a screen with a touch sampling rate of 720 Hz, against 500 Hz of its predecessor.
