Nubia Red Magic 5S launched with Snapdragon 865, improved cooling and 144Hz refresh rate

One of the brands bringing out some of the most innovative dedicated gaming smartphones lately has been Nubia. The brand launched the Nubia Red Magic 5G back in March this year and now, we already have the Red Magic 5S. The new update to the phone brings in some more improvements to the device enabling it to churn out even more performance than before, apparently even more efficiently.

The main addition to the Nubia Red Magic 5S is the silver-plated cooling pad. The company claims that the new cooling pad will deliver better and faster results than the conventional copper pipes that are used in most smartphones. This results in lower throttling on the device. One of the highlights of the Red Magic 5G was the inbuilt fan that spins at 15,000 RPM to cool the phone down faster. This fan also makes its way to the new Red Magic 5S.
