Hands-on with the RedMagic 6S Pro Ghost's eye-popping transparent back and RGB fan

Hands-on with the RedMagic 6S Pro Ghost's eye-popping transparent back and RGB fan

We learned on Monday that RedMagic's latest gaming phone is coming to the US, Canada, and most of Europe on September 27th. RedMagic might not be a household name, but the company has been releasing purpose-built gaming phones in the West for a while now, and each iteration brings something new, and this is especially true for the RedMagic 6S Pro, all thanks to the new Ghost model that offers a transparent back and an RGB illuminated internal fan. This is one slick-looking device, and while the gamer aesthetic might not appeal to everyone, it's nice to see RedMagic leaning into the niche market of gaming phones with a flourish.

The RedMagic 6S Pro ups its gamer cred with an RGB-lit internal fan and a transparent back

The RedMagic brand may not ring a bell for many outside the mobile gaming community, but the Nubia brand has made a name for itself by selling affordable high-end gaming smartphones. And that's exactly the niche the company is aiming its next device at again, the RedMagic 6S Pro. It's a step-up compared to the RedMagic 6R and 6, though the similarities are striking outside a few key specifications.

RedMagic 6R long-term review: One-trick pony

RedMagic 6R long-term review: One-trick pony

Last year, RedMagic refreshed the RedMagic 5G as the RedMagic 5S, but there weren't many differences between the two, raising the question of why the 5S was necessary to begin with. This year, the RedMagic 6 is seeing a significant change with the looming launch of the RedMagic 6R. The 6R has slimmed down significantly while retaining the majority of its high-end gaming features. For $500, you get a Snapdragon 888, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, a quad camera, a 4200mAh battery that supports 30W charging, all in a package that's easily pocketable. The software still stinks, but there's no arguing that this hardware is a stupendous value.

RedMagic pulls off the (im)possible: Turning a gaming phone you don't care about into a normal phone you might

RedMagic pulls off the (im)possible: Turning a gaming phone you don't care about into a normal phone you might

RedMagic has just announced that its mid-year refresh for the RedMagic 6 is coming later this month. It's called the RedMagic 6R, and unlike the company's previous refreshes, this gaming phone deviates from the 6, opting for something more in line with accessible everyday use thanks to a slimmer design and a quad camera. The RedMagic 6R will go on sale on June 24th, starting at $499.

You probably didn't even know you wanted a gaming phone, but this one is worth a second look

You probably didn't even know you wanted a gaming phone, but this one is worth a second look

RedMagic isn't a big name in the US, but it's been busy carving out a niche for budget gaming phones. Gaming phones almost always come with compromises, and a budget option even more so. Still, for $600, the RedMagic 6 is killer on paper with a Snapdragon 888, 12GB of RAM, and a 165Hz display, but prodigious specs aren't always enough when poor support is on the table. Still, some mobile gamers might make that trade-off for super-smooth gameplay when the RedMagic 6 launches later this month.

RedMagic 5S review: Great at games, but not much else

RedMagic 5S review: Great at games, but not much else

Gaming phones are a newer niche for Android devices, and Nubia is one of the companies running headlong into this fledgling field. This past May, we took a look at the Red Magic 5, and we did not come away impressed thanks to numerous bugs and compromises. Now that the Red Magic 5S is here, and we can say for certain that features like internal cooling and a high refresh rate come at a cost: the Red Magic 5S is good for gaming but not much else.

The Red Magic 5 isn't a complete wash—its gaming-centric features and performance help to even out the device's lack of polish.

Nubia came out swinging earlier this year with the RedMagic 5G, a powerhouse of a phone that packed flagship specs at only a fraction of the price. When considering a sequel, it's hard to improve upon an already compelling package, but Nubia managed to expand even further on this winning formula with better thermals, faster triggers, and an improved Game Space. Introducing the new RedMagic 5S, on sale today starting at just $579.

New Red Magic 5S is basically the 5G, plus a few improvements

Nubia is following up on the apparent success of the Red Magic 5G with the same formula it used last year: an incrementally improved "S" bump. The new Red Magic 5S packs most of the same specs with a few tweaks like faster shoulder trigger polling, better cooling, and faster storage. It's China-only for now, but a global release is planned for September.
