The Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro is about to be formalized. In the meantime, the manufacturer has unveiled some interesting details.

If you are looking for a smartphone to playtwo brands will generally come out on top, Asus with its Rog Phone series and Nubia with its Red Magic. Nubia’s latest is called the Red Magic 8 Pro and it was just announced in China.

Although they generally suffer from interface problems, the Red Magic are nonetheless curiosities in the smartphone market capable of aligning the most impressive technical sheets in the industry.

Huge battery and super fast charging

Evidenced by the huge 6000mAh battery which equips the Red Magic 8 Pro. Since gaming is a very power-intensive activity, the many extra mAh should come in handy. In addition, the manufacturer has also provided a charge of 80W, promising use over 47 hours. Let’s add that Nubia is also releasing a Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro+ equipped for its part with a 5000 mAh battery, but with a 165 W charge, among the fastest on the market.

But a gaming smartphone would be nothing without maddening performance. The Red Magic 8 Pro is no exception and features a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and 8GB of LPDDR5X RAM. The manufacturer claims to have reached 1.3 million points on the AnTuTu benchmark, a very impressive score. Enough to heat the two triggers located on the left side of the device.

Air and liquid cooling

Of course, a complete cooling system completes all this. There’s a built-in fan as well as the industry’s first dual-pump VC 3D liquid cooling system, aided by 10 layers of cooling materials. A little overkill some will say, but Nubia claims to have lowered the temperature of its device by an average of 16 degrees.

For the rest, the Red Magic 8 Pro of course includes a 120 Hz Oled panel with very thin 1.48 mm borders and a very high sampling rate. Count 960 Hz. The phone also has a jack port for connecting headphones as well as a fairly standard photo sensor of the 1/1.57 inch type in 16 megapixels.
