The Red Magic 8 Pro is one of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 smartphones that have already been released. Since its late December launch, the phone has only been available in China, but that will now change.

Today, Nubia announced the Red Magic 8 Pro’s global release, and it does appear to be a fantastic gaming phone. The aforementioned Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, together with an enhanced cooling system, powers the phone.

More specifically, among other cooling measures, you have a bigger vapor chamber cooling plate and an integrated cooling fan with a maximum speed of 20,000 RPM. Therefore, people looking for the finest long-term gaming performance should keep this phone in mind. Another thing that shouldn’t be surprising is the presence of two capacitive shoulder triggers.

What else does it bring to the table?

The rest of the phone also looks pretty impressive, featuring a 6.8-inch 120Hz OLED screen, 12GB to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM, 256GB to 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage, a 6,000mAh battery, and 65W wired charging via the included charger.

Switching to the cameras, Nubia’s handset brings a second-generation 16MP under-display selfie camera. Otherwise, you’ve got a triple camera system on the back, consisting of a 50MP GN5 main camera, 8MP ultrawide snapper, and 2MP macro lens.

A 3.5mm connector (excellent), Bluetooth 5.3, dual stereo speakers, an in-display fingerprint sensor with heart rate detection, Red Magic OS 6.0 on top of Android 13, and support for Wi-Fi 7 are some further noteworthy Red Magic 8 Pro features.
