The Nubia RedMagic 5S gaming phone is available for pre-order starting today in China. The device is equipped with a 6.65-inch AMOLED display which updates at a whopping 144 times per second (144Hz refresh rate) for incredibly smooth scrolling and enhanced gaming animation. The Touch Choreographer feature adjusts the refresh rate to keep gameplay looking smooth. And the handset also includes 320Hz shoulder triggers which Nubia calls a “must-have” feature for gamers as it turns the device into a dedicated gaming machine. The triggers are customizable so whatever game is being played, they can be helpful.
The RedMagic 5S features a triple camera setup with a 64MP primary camera and Sony sensors. The phone is offered in Sonic Silver and Pulse. The latter has a blue and red design. A 4500mAh battery keeps the lights on and an 18W charger comes with the phone. A faster 55W charging brick will be available as a separate purchase in certain markets. And as you would expect from a premium gaming phone, there is a high-quality audio system inside.
To prevent such a high-powered gaming phone from overheating, which can slow down the performance of the device, the RedMagic 5S is equipped with Trinity Cooling. This technology uses an L-shaped liquid cooling pipe with aerospace-grade nano thermal materials, intelligent temperature sensors, and increased ventilation to keep it running cool. A new accessory called the Ice Dock makes sure that nothing can cause the handset to overheat allowing you to play games all day long.
