There is no shortage of gaming phones in the market, and today, Nubia presented us with the RedMagic 8 Pro, the latest and greatest gaming phone from the company, and the phone is now available globally for those who are interested.
Of course, no gaming phone would be complete without one, and the RedMagic 8 Pro is probably one of the best looking devices on the market. If you’re worried about the specs, fret not, as the phone is packed with some excellent hardware.
Nubia RedMagic 8 Pro is one of the fastest and cheapest gaming phones on the market
We start with the trusty Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, coupled with 12 or 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and a choice of 256 or 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage. Powering the RedMagic 8 Pro is a massive 6,000mAh battery that can be charged with 65W fast wired charging. The phone runs on ICE 11.0 cooling system that includes a dedicated fan to improve the overall temperature.
On the front, you’ll find a 6.8-inch 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED panel with a 960Hz touch sampling rate, DC dimming, and Gorilla Glass 5 coating for protection against scratches and drops. It’s safe to say that the RedMagic 8 Pro won’t hold back when it comes to offering one of the best gaming experiences one could hope for.
Gaming phones usually suffer from mediocre camera systems, but that’s not the case with the RedMagic 8 Pro because you get a 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN5 sensor as the main camera, along with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor and a 2MP macro camera. At the front, you have a 16MP selfie camera.
The RedMagic 8 Pro is perhaps one of the more aggressive looking phones out there; It follows a boxy design language with some nice RGB lighting, along with an aluminum frame. However, the best thing is the fact that the phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The RedMagic 8 Pro will ship with Android 13 pre-installed along with some customizations from Nubia to make your phone truly your own. For those wondering about pricing and availability, the phone will start at $649 for the 12/256GB variant and $799 for the 16/512GB variant, making this phone one of the most affordable flagship phones out there. The phone will be available in Matte and Void colors only.
