We’ve seen several Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 smartphones launched already, with the Red Magic 8 Pro being one of these devices. The phone has been restricted to China since its late December launch, but that’s changing today.

Nubia announced the global launch of the Red Magic 8 Pro today, and it’s indeed looking like a great gaming phone. The phone is powered by the aforementioned Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, but we’re also getting an improved cooling solution.

More specifically, you’ve got a larger vapor chamber cooling plate and a built-in cooling fan capable of reaching 20,000 RPM, among other cooling measures. So those on the hunt for the best sustained gaming performance will want to keep this phone in mind. It should also come as no surprise to see a pair of capacitive shoulder triggers here.

Red Magic 8 Pro: 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.

Other notable Red Magic 8 Pro features include a 3.5mm port (nice), Bluetooth 5.3, dual stereo speakers, an in-display fingerprint sensor with heart rate detection, Red Magic OS 6.0 atop Android 13, and Wi-Fi 7 support.

Red Magic 8 Pro pricing and availability

These specs don’t mean much if the device is hideously overpriced. Thankfully, the Red Magic 8 Pro is one of the more competitively priced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phones in global markets.

The 12GB/256GB phone will be available for $649 / €649 / £579. Need more RAM and storage? Then the 16GB/512GB model will set you back $799 / Є749 / £709. The Red Magic 8 Pro will go on sale from February 2 in Asia-Pacific regions, Europe, Latin and North America, and the Middle East.
