Following the test of the strength of the new gaming smartphone Nubia Red Magic 3, Zack Nilsson took up his disassembly. The main feature of the device has become a built-in cooler – for the first time in smartphones. Tehnoblogger decided to check whether the fan really cools the filling of the device, or is it just another marketing move to draw attention to the product.
Nubia Red Magic 3 is made in an all-metal case, so it is easier to disassemble than a model with a glass back. When disassembling the device, you need to be extremely careful not to damage the cables of the LCD backlight, fingerprint scanner and other components.
The cooler is attached to the back cover, and for its normal operation there are two holes in the case: on the side and on the back. Through them, the air gets inside and is taken out after passing through a small metal tunnel. Due to this, the plate is cooled and thereby reduces the temperature of the processor. Thus, the air cooling in Red Magic 3 really works as intended.
The rest of the Nubia Red Magic 3 is not much different from other modern smartphones: the modular design of the components makes it easy to detach and replace them. Under the main board, nevertheless, something unusual was discovered – a pink thermal paste. Under it, the blogger found a copper heat pipe. To determine its size, the blogger had to break the display.
