nubia Red Magic 5S goes official - specifications and pricesnubia has just unveiled the Red Magic 5S gaming smartphone as promised. It remains largely unchanged compared to its sibling - the Red Magic 5G. The most important new feature is the largely improved cooling system.

For starters, the north-south air duct design has been redesigned for stronger heat dissipation. The duct surface area has been increased to 4000 sq. mm - an increase of 56% over the previous generation. Moreover, nubia has used aerospace-grade nanomaterials with high thermal conductivity.

Secondly, there's a new silver heat sink placed in the middle between the rear shell and the battery. From the large thermal copper plate (54 x 86 mm), heat is transmitted to the silver heat sink on the sheet. Paired with the 15,000 RPM fan, it improves cooling.

Thirdly, nubia has used a high thermal conductivity copper box for its liquid cooling pipe paired to thermal conductivity glue and multi-layer thermal graphite.

All the rest is the same as on the Red Magic 5G. The Red Magic 5S offers a 144Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. You can switch to 90Hz and 60Hz as well. The AMOLED display has a 6.65-inch size with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, 100% DCI-P3, DC dimming, HDR support. The smartphone is equipped with three rear cameras, including a 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 main shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle AF camera, and a 2MP macro unit. The main camera has a 78.3° FoV. Power is supplied by a 4500mAh battery with 55W fast charging. There's a USB Type-C port on board compatible with the QC4.0, PD3.0 PPS protocols for fast charging.

The Red Magic 5S is priced as follows:
