Looking for an ultimate gaming phone? The jury is still out but this might be it, the Redmi Magic 7 series.

The Red Magic 7 and 7 Pro picks up from where its predecessors left off and improved from it. For one, both models now have an improved air fan cooling system. The new ICE 8.0 system still has the fan spinning at 20,000rpm but is now partnered with something called the canyon air duct that goes to a second air inlet.

With the new system, the airflow has increased by 35%, making the chipset cooler by 3-degrees celsius. That’s also thanks to its nine-layer cooling structure that consists of a new gel that’s thermally conductive, a composite phase heat dissipation material, vapor chamber, and graphite sheet.

Speaking which, the device is powered by — you guessed it — one of today’s most powerful chipsets, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.

So, what’s the difference between the two? Let’s start with the display. While both models have 6.8-inch FHD+ AMOLED screens, the Pro model gets to have 10-bit support and is brighter at 700-nits (vs 600-nits).

The refresh and touch sampling rates combinations are quite bizarre. The Pro model refreshes at 120Hz and has touch responsiveness up to a whopping 960Hz. The vanilla model unsurprisingly has a slower 720Hz touch sampling rate, but does have a smoother 165Hz refresh rate.

Possibly the key difference in the screens is the UD front camera, which hides the selfie sensor underneath the screen. That’s for the Pro model, while the standard Red Magic 7 has it on the top bezel.

Other distinct differences between the Red Magic 7 and 7 Pro are the charging. The former has a 4,500mAh battery with 120W charging — which is already mighty impressive, but the Pro model takes it up a notch further by having a 135W charging support that can top-up its 5,000mAh battery in just 15 minutes.

The Red Magic 7 is available in Cyber Neon and Night Knight that has RGB logo and breathing lights. There’s also a Deuterium Transparent Edition that has additional RGB lights on the fan. The Pro model has the same color, albeit the black looks slightly different and is called Polar Black Night.

Following ASUS ROG, Nubia is also selling proprietary accessories to spice things up. There’s the Turbo Cooler accessory that ups the heat dissipation by 17% and has RGB lights, too.
