While it looks practically identical to the Red Magic 6 Pro save for branding tweaks, the Red Magic 6S Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 888+ processor that should deliver better overall performance over the non-plus version of the Snapdragon 888. To keep up with the added performance, the Red Magic 6S Pro has an ICE 7.0 cooling system that adds Phase Change Materials (PCM) for improved heat dissipation. Like the non-S model, the Red Magic 6S Pro’s active cooling spins at up to 20000RPM.
The AMOLED display gets a slight tweak on the Red Magic 6S Pro with an updated 720hz multi-finger touch sampling rate. For reference, the Red Magic 6 Pro has a 500hz single finger touch sampling rate and 360hz multi-finger touch sampling rate. The in-display fingerprint scanner is more secure, as it can detect heart rate, making it harder to fool the sensor.
As for gaming-focused triggers, the Red Magic 6S Pro adds an additional trigger on the back of the phone.
