Nubia Red Magic 3S Overview

Nubia Red Magic 3 is already a powerful gaming smartphone but the company makes it even more powerful with Nubia Red Magic 3s. The key specs of this new Nubia Red Magic 3S are

  1. Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC
  2. 90Hz Display
  3. UFS 3.0 Storage
  4. 12GB RAM
  5. 5,000mAh Battery/ 27W Fast Charging


Nubia Red Magic 3S is wrapping a 6.65” Full-HD+ AMOLED Display with the resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, the screen-to-body ratio of 80.5%, 240Hz Touch Sampling Rate and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The refresh rate of 90Hz is much smoother and you’ll surely love it but the bezels at the top and bottom may disturb you. The 90Hz refresh rate is becoming common more and more nowadays. After OnePlus 7 Pro, the other devices to have this refresh rate are OPPO Reno Ace, Google Pixel 4


The reason behind the top and bottom bezels are to make comfortable to hold the device while playing games. Also, these bezels will be helpful to attach the necessary accessories to the device.


Nubia has replaced Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 to Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus to give more power to the new device. This new SD 855 Plus is more powerful, improved GPU and AI than the previous SD 855. The recent devices to have this latest SD855 Plus are Realme X2 Pro, OPPO Reno Ace, Vivo Nex 3 5G and more. 


The Octa-core chipset is paired with up to 12GB of RAM and internal storage up to 256GB UFS 3.0. Nubia Red Magic 3S has active liquid-cooling via Turbo Fan.


To be frank, Nubia Red Magic 3S is not for those who prefer a smartphone foe more photography works. Well, the camera of Nubia Red Magic 3S is not that bad either, it’s average. This device sport a single rear camera of 48MP SONY IMX 586 with an aperture of f/1.7. This rear camera can shoot video in 8K at 30fps. On the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.0. 

Battery & Gaming 

Nubia Red Magic 3S comes with a monstrous battery of 5,000mAh battery. It supports 27W fast charging. According to the company, it can survive an hour of gaming with 10minutes of charging. This device is running on Android 9 Pie with RedMagic UI 2.0. I wish it had Android 10 preinstalled.


Nubia Red Magic 3S has Liquid Cooling Tech as a cooling fan inside the device to control the excessive heat produced during long gaming. The smartphone has a gaming port on-board with the help of which you can connect external accessories like charger, headphone jack, and ethernet cable.
