Nubia RedMagic 6S Pro drops with all new chipset

Over the past several years, a new sector has been quietly opening up in the seemingly stagnant world of smartphone design. This has come about through the co-mingling of several factors, chief of which is the maturation of phone hardware technology. These devices now pack more processing power, RAM speed, battery life and display technology into their tiny frames than many laptops and tablets. The other instrumental element in this new trend is a shift in customer demand and orientation, especially in emerging global markets, which has seen their relevance as multimedia devices grow.

Changing Markets

In fact, in Asia, over 50% of smartphone users identify their devices as the only computer and entertainment center they own, or use with any regularity. This is also the case of Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, where users are 1.5 times more likely to use their smartphones for playing games and watching movies. Naturally, flagship smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra have been increasingly seeking to accommodate this trend with ever larger displays and improved speakers, but until recently no smartphones had been built from the ground up to cater for gamers who opt to use their smartphones as their primary console. This all changed with 2017’s Razer Phone, which was quickly followed by other gaming-centric devices from the likes of Asus and Lenovo.

Laptop Technology

These phones, pioneered by gaming computer specialists like the brands mentioned above, have brought the innovations developed on gaming laptops into the realm of smartphone design. Now, the gaming smartphone sector is well established and increasingly competitive. Of the stand-out phone series in this market, ZTE and their Nubia RedMagic phones have been among the best. Now, the Shenzhen company is set to debut its latest monster gaming device, the Nubia RedMagic 6S Pro, with an all new Snapdragon processor and a few fresh tricks up its sleeve.


ZTE envisages gamers of all stripes utilizing the 6S Pro to bring out the best in their gaming sessions. As the device runs on lightly skinned Android software it can run everything from high octane Play Store titles such as Asphalt 9 to browser based classics in online slots and HTML5 mini-games. This ensures its formidable hardware can be employed in the widest range of contexts. That hardware, like other gaming phones, is among the best you can find in this form factor in 2021. Below we take a look at the killer specifications that suggest the 6S Pro may be set to take the crown of the most powerful gaming phone of 2021 from March’s Asus ROG Phone 5.


One of the greatest design obstacles facing gaming phones is thermal management. This is due to the fact conventional smartphone design prioritizes a sleek, pocketable form factor over thermal efficiency. As gaming phones have become more powerful, the inclusion of active cooling fans has become necessary to prevent thermal throttling. The 6S Pro is no different in this regard, though it brings some additional innovations to the table over its forerunner, the 6 Pro. The 20,000 rpm fan is now concealed in a new metal casing that is said to reduce noise pollution by up to 40%. The 6S Pro also benefits from the inclusion of new phase change materials that distribute and dissipate heat across the phone in a more even fashion, further safeguarding against overload.


The 6S Pro carries over the dedicated shoulder trigger buttons from the previous model and includes an extra back-mounted trigger for greater optionality for button mapping. These triggers also benefit from upgraded response time over the 6 Pro. Display wise, the market-leading 165hz refresh rate display and 700 nits of brightness returns, now with multi-touch sensitivity up to 720hz over the 6 Pro’s 450. Other ports from the 6 Pro include the large 4500mAh battery with rapid charging and 12GB RAM. The biggest differentiating factor in this admittedly incremental upgrade has to be the inclusion of the new top-of-the-line Snapdragon 888+ which pushes the clock speed up to a blisteringly fast 2.995 GHz, up from 2.84 Ghz on the 6 Pro.
