RedMagic is a brand based on Android gaming phones with the specs and design required for players in this arena. However, it is now slated to branch into smartwatches in 2021, something confirmed by a new FCC listing. It is a round-faced wearable with an AMOLED display and heart-rate monitor.

With their signature esthetics and physical spinning fan for cooling, RedMagic devices are arguably some of the most gaming of gaming phones out there. Futhermore, its next upcoming generation is said to have a Pro variant for the first time, with super-fast 120W charging.

Considering this spec, it may be just as well that RedMagic's parent brand Nubia has just teased this 6 series as phones with "strengthened" fans, as well as a new nine-axis spatial sensor. It is intended to track the phone's movement through space. It is not clear what this new feature is for, although it might indeed improve gesture-based navigation, or possibly mixed-reality app use, games included.

The brand has hyped the upcoming phones' new abilities with a strange video that involves flying phones, although the RedMagic 6 line's fans are probably not capable of this effect in reality, regardless of how powerful their fans are. They are also rumored to have Tencent branding, not to mention a companoin smartwatch for the first time.

The FCC has inadvertently leaked this device in full through its new certifcation online. It includes a user manual that confirms it is called the RedMagic Watch. Then again, you would hardly know it from its official images: it has a circular face and a dark-colored strap that is, given the rest of the hardware under its name, light on branding and styling.

Nevertheless, its new documentation mentions a leather strap option and a new RedMagic sports app. It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display, 2 physical buttons, three forms of GPS positioning and a heart-rate sensor. Its user manual also alludes to blood-oxygen tracking, features powered by a 420mAh battery. 

Therefore, it seems RedMagic will have this wearable ready to unveil alongside the (Tencent) 6 and 6 Pro. The brand is also poised to up-sell customers with a new Nubia GaN Pro 65W Triple-Port Charger, which, hopefully, is not a hint the brand will leave a standard charger out of their 2021 retail boxes.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
