Nubia's RedMagic 6 Pro is currently one of the best gaming phones you can buy right now, but the company upped the ante with the unveiling of the RedMagic 7 series in China last week. Today, Nubia announced the global launch of the vanilla RedMagic 7 with specs and features that highlight the firm's efforts to dominate the gaming smartphone segment.

The RedMagic 7 will be up for grabs from March 10 in various territories, including Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East and and Latin America. It comes in three models: Obsidian Black, Pulsar and Supernova. The Obsidian variant starts at $629, Pulsar at $729, and Supernova at $799.

Like its predecessor, the RedMagic 7 features a 165Hz screen refresh rate, which makes it the fastest phone screen available today. It has the same specs and features as the Chinese version, including a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging support, and a 6.8-inch 1080p AMOLED display.

It also claims to have a multi-finger touch sampling rate of 720Hz. Meanwhile, the touch-sensitive dual shoulder triggers are sampled at up to 500Hz. These features beat other gaming devices when it comes to making games feel super responsive.

The phone has a fancy design to boot. The Obsidian and Pulsar models feature lighting effects with the RedMagic logo light at the back and RGB breathing lights. Meanwhile, the Supernova edition has a RedMagic logo light and RGB lights within its built-in turbofan that's visible through its transparent back.

Under the hood, the phone has up to 18GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, though this is available only with the Supernova variant. The Obsidian Black version is limited only to 12GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Pulsar model, on the other hand, comes in 16GB/256GB configuration. Nubia's latest gaming phone also includes a 6GB expandable virtual RAM.

The RedMagic 7 also shows off Nubia's ICE 8.0 multi-dimensional cooling system, which comprises nine layers of various cooling methods "including phase change material, a turbofan powered cooling air duct, high-conductivity copper foil, thermally conductive rare earth materials, a Vapor Chamber Cooling, and graphite sheet."

Round the back, it has a triple camera setup consisting of a 64MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide shooter and a 2MP macro sensor. An 8MP camera on the front handles selfie shots.

The RedMagic 7 runs RedMagic OS 5 based on Android 12, featuring Nubia's Magic Write system that it says is capable of 30% more speed for app installation than competitors that use SSD.

Nubia's custom Android skin also boasts some gaming-focused capabilities such as a game-reminder plug-in that sets off an alarm so you don't miss out on specific game events. The "Quick Picture Library" plug-in also lets you view images you've saved in game.

As for the RedMagic 7 Pro, Nubia says its global debut is scheduled for the second quarter of 2022.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

The hidden cost of food delivery

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

Review: Anker's Latest 3-in-1 Power Bank is a Versatile On-the-Go Powerhouse

Popular accessory brand Anker has just launched a new 10K version of its 3-in-1 power bank that offers up to 30 watts of charging power, a convenient display to quickly view exact charge status, an integrated USB-C cable for both input and output, and built-in folding prongs to recharge directly from a power outlet. I've recently been testing one of these Anker power banks out, and it has become a must-have accessory for my gear bag. Competitively priced at $44.99, the 10,000 mAh capacity means I can charge up my iPhone 15 Pro Max more than one and a half times while on the go, which is plenty for a long day out or even a weekend trip where easy access to power might be iffy. And the 30-watt charging speed means it'll charge my devices up quickly, meaning spending less time with my phone awkwardly tethered to a power bank while I'm out and about. A quick charge during a lunch or dinner is more than enough to keep my iPhone topped off for the remainder of the day. Th
