What you need to know

  • The RedMagic 6S Pro is Nubia's latest flagship gaming phone.
  • It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888+ chipset and features an AMOLED display with a 720Hz touch sampling rate.
  • The RedMagic 6S Pro will go on sale globally from September 27 for a starting price of $599.

ZTE's Nubia sub-brand has announced a feature-packed new gaming phone to take the fight to ASUS' ROG Phone 5S series.

The new RedMagic 6S Pro is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888+ processor, which promises slightly faster performance compared to the Snapdragon 888 chip that powers nearly all the best Android phones of 2021. Along with a new chipset, the RedMagic 6S Pro also brings Nubia's ICE 7.0 cooling system with "Phase Change Materials (PCM." There's an active cooling fan too, with four RGB LEDs.

Nubia's latest gaming phone comes with a similar 6.8-inch 165Hz AMOLED display as the RedMagic 6 Pro, but the touch sampling rate has been upgraded to 720Hz. The shoulder triggers on the back of the phone also run at a higher 450Hz touch sampling rate and tout a response time of just 2.2ms.

The rest of the phone's specs are pretty much identical to its predecessor. It has a triple-camera setup on the back with a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a depth sensor. For selfies, the phone comes with an 8MP camera on the front. Keeping the lights on is a 5,050mAh battery with support for 66W charging speeds. Disappointingly, the phone will ship with just a 30W charger in the box. The Chinese version of the phone, on the other hand, features a smaller 4,500mAh battery with 120W charging.

The RedMagic 6S Pro is set to go on sale in North America, Europe, and a few other markets from September 27. It is priced at $599/€599/£519 for the 12GB/128GB version and $699/€699/£609 for the 16GB/256GB version in Cyborg Black. The transparent version featuring 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage will be available for $729/€729/£629.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
