With the in-display fingerprint sensor, it has an audio jack, NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, USB Type-C port. It has a decent battery worth 4500mAh capacity, that supports 55W fast charging. Taking about gaming capabilities, it overhauls the cooling systems in previous Red Magic 5G with a new silver-plated vapour chamber.

The usage of this ICE Ag silver plate is more beneficial than other gaming phones which use the cooling pipe technologies, which could throttle the performance. Further, it also retains the cooling fan of 15,000 RPM as in Red Magic 5G.
