The Nubia RedMagic 7 will reportedly support 165W fast charging
Former ZTE subsidiary Nubia has always pushed the envelope to demonstrate seemingly-egregious features on their smartphones. It is one of the few OEMs that use a physical fan in their phones, which, in turn, allows it to push the underlying silicon to record-breaking speeds, as demonstrated by the Nubia RedMagic 6s Pro's AnTuTu hegemony. Now, its successor, the RedMagic 7, is slated to bring yet another overkill feature: support for 165W fast charging.
The information comes from Weibo stalwart Digital Chat Station, who happened to find the listing for the RedMagic 7's battery on 3C, a Chinese certification website. It states that the battery with model number NX679J operates at 20V/8.25A. While 165W might seem a tad excessive wattage for a smartphone, its predecessor, the RedMagic 6s Pro, could top its battery up at 120W. Little more is known about its specifics, but we can reasonably assume that Nubia will continue to use a dual-cell design for its battery.
As far as the remaining Nubia RedMagic 7 specs are concerned, an earlier report told us it could pack a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. We can expect Nubia to pair it with a high-refresh-rate AMOLED panel, up to 16GB (or even 18GB) of RAM and a cooling fan to keep the internals chilly. Its regular appearance on certification websites indicates that it is inching closer to release, although it is hard to tell when it will hit shelves. Furthermore, these phones seldom make it out of China, so one would be hard-pressed to get their hands on one.
