To start, the Nubia Red Magic 5S comes with a 6.65-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. This comes with 144Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate, numbers that go well with a gaming phone. There’s also an in-display optical fingerprint sensor. It also has a pair of shoulder keys, which the company claims has a 320Hz touch sampling rate, which is a small 20Hz improvement over the Red Magic 5G.
On the inside, the phone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, which comes with its own elaborate cooling system. Powering it is a 4500mAh battery that supports 55W fast charging. We’ll get to its RAM and storage in a bit.
For its cameras, the Nubia Red Magic 5S comes with a 64MP main camera, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera. In front, it comes with an 8MP camera that refreshingly isn’t sitting in a notch.
When it becomes available here, the Nubia Red Magic 5S will only come in its 8GB + 18GB configuration. And it will have a price tag of RM3099. It is available for pre-order from the ZTE official stores on both Lazada and Shopee. According to the former’s listing, it will be officially available on 12 February 2021.
