Just yesterday we told you that Black Shark had called the press for an event on July 31st in which he would present his new gaming mobile, the Black Shark 3S. The reason why it launches a minor iteration compared to the model announced a few weeks ago is because brands like Asus or Lenovo have recently announced their terminals and use faster memory, better processors and, ultimately, have better specifications.
This is the same thing that happened to Nubia, which launched the Red Magic 5 in Spain and other markets a few weeks ago and that we were even able to analyze. Not to be confused with the Red Magic 5G Lite that was put on sale in our country with Vodafone.

A minor review of the Red Magic 5
This terminal is almost identical to the model that we already know and is normal. What Nubia was looking for was to bring it up to its last rivals, which is why it has increased the maximum RAM to 16 GB, has used UFS 3.1 technology in internal memory and has improved the sensitivity of the haptic buttons of the frames.
The most striking thing is that it has not implemented the new Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 865 Plus and is left with the 865 that already owned the previous model.
An optional fan
It has also presented the Ice Dock, a fan that is attached to the terminal, similar to that of the ASUS ROG Phone 3. It will be sold separately and costs about 20 euros to change.
The Red Magic 5S has been put on sale in China in the two colors you see in the image above at a price of 3,799 yuan (about 460 euros) for the 8GB model with 128 GB of memory, 4,399 yuan (about 535 euros) ) for the 12 and 256 GB and 4999 yuan (one s610 euros) for the 16 and 256 GB model.
