Nubia has just launched the website for the sale of global version do Nubia Red Magic 7 . With 18 GB of RAM, cooler and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 165Hz screen, this is the most powerful gaming smartphone today. This is of course also due to the absence of the ROG Phone 6.

Announced a few weeks ago in China, Nubia has just released the global version of Red Magic 7.



At this point in time, I believe everyone knows that anyone who buys a smartphone of this level is not interested in cameras or day-to-day usability.,

Powerful, well-cooled processor

So let's talk about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor clocked up to 3,0 GHz, 4 nm lithography and Adreno 730 GPU.

As everyone knows, it is not enough just to put the best processor, it is necessary to know how to cool it. And that's where smartphone gamers like the Nubia Red Magic put on a show.

In the test carried out by the website techtablets, the Nubia Red Magic 7 managed to beat Genshin Impact, a solid 60fps spiked for several minutes playing.

On Antutu, the Nubia Red Magic 7 surpassed the score of 1 million points, being the first Android smartphone to accomplish this feat.

The reason the smartphone has passed the test of one of the heaviest games today is simple. Good cooling.

The Red Magic 7 comes equipped with a gigantic thermalpad and next to it is a cooler that runs up to 20 rpm. As if that were not enough, the device still has a compartment with liquid cooling.


See the full specs of Red Magic 7:


  • Screen: 6,8 inch AMOLED, 20:9 aspect ratio

  • Refresh rate: 165 Hz

  • Battery: 4500 mAh

  • Fingerprint reader on screen
  • Side stereo speakers

  • Dimensions: 170,6 x 78,3 x 9,5 mm

It is curious to note that the smartphone did very well in the test just using the internal cooler. However, the Red Magic 7 has as an accessory sold separately an extra cooler called the Turbo Cooler that attaches to the back of the smartphone. This extra cooler is the same as those sold by other companies and uses a sub-zero degree celsius cooling technique.
