Red Magic 8 Pro and Pro+ launch with Snapdragon Gen2
Nubia has just announced the Red Magic 8 Pro and Pro+ gaming smartphones with impressive specs. The device comes in two versions: the Red Magic 8 Pro, with a 6,000 mAh battery and 80W fast charging, and the Red Magic 8 Pro+, which has a smaller 5,000 mAh battery but boasts a speedy 165W fast charging capability.
Both versions feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and come with the Red Magic R2 chip for enhanced gaming effects such as improved sound, color, and haptic vibration feedback. The screen is a 6.8-inch AMOLED with Full HD+ resolution, a 120 Hz refresh rate, and up to 960 Hz touch sampling rate. The phone also boasts a 50 MP primary camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2 MP macro sensor.
In terms of gaming performance, the Red Magic 8 Pro comes with next generation ICE 11.0 cooling system, which includes multilayer graphite plates and 3D vapor chamber. The fans still run at 20,000 rpm which is the same as the 7S Pro released earlier this year. Nubia has also improved the design of the phone connecting nine separate antennas around the body.
The Red Magic 8 Pro and its 6,000 mAh battery come with an 80W charger in the box, which can charge the phone from 0% to 100% in just 35 minutes. The Red Magic 8 Pro+ comes with a 5,000 mAh battery and the fastest 165W fast charging ever seen in a Red Magic smartphone, thanks to a GaN adapter with USB-C. The Red Magic 8 Pro and 8 Pro+ are available for pre-order starting at 3,999 CNY($575) and 5,199 CNY($730), respectively, and will go on sale on December 28 in limited markets.
Red Magic usually launches its global version about a month after they are announced. The global versions include carrier bands that work on AT&T and T-Mobile.
