Nubia Red Magic 5S will launch as a new version of the Nubia Red Magic 5G that was unveiled in March this year. The company shared the development on Weibo and further teased that phone will pack the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC. Other upcoming gaming smartphones like the Asus ROG Phone 3 and Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone are said to be powered by the new Qualcomm mobile processor. Nubia is yet to announce the launch date of Nubia Red Magic 5S.

Nubia President Ni Fei shared the post about the Nubia Red Magic 5S on Weibo with the teaser "Beyond Plus." The Plus likely indicates towards the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC that was launched earlier in July.

Other specifications, as well as the launch date of the Nubia Red Magic 5S, remain unclear. However, going by the launch of the Red Magic 3S last year which was a minor update to Red Magic 3, unveiled in the same year, we can expect a similar trend with the upcoming Red Magic 5S.
