Nubia Launches REDMAGIC 8 Pro Globally alongside REDMAGIC’s New Logo
Nubia has unveiled the REDMAGIC 8 Pro, a flagship gaming smartphone under the brand’s new “Up Your Game” slogan. Along with the new device, the REDMAGIC has also revealed a new logo, which is designed to reflect its mission to be more than just a gaming smartphone brand, but a versatile choice for all ages and lifestyles. REDMAGIC 8 Pro boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, LPDDR5x memory, UFS 4.0 storage, and an upgraded dedicated gaming chip (Red Core 2). The phone comes in two designs: Matte black with 12GB RAM and 256GB memory, and transparent Void with 16GB RAM and 512GB memory.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 – The Fastest Chipset Ever
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in the REDMAGIC 8 Pro boasts a beast mode speed of 3.2GHz and is equipped with Qualcomm’s Adreno GPU, which is 42% faster and 50% more power efficient than its predecessor. Additionally, the Kryo CPU is 37% more efficient. The device boasts UFS 4.0 technology for improved storage and faster file read-write speeds, reaching 100% faster performance. It boasts a substantial 512 GB ROM and LPDDR5x memory that surpasses LPDDR5 in speed by over 100%. This results in an Antutu score of 1,348,653 and a 20% improvement in energy efficiency on the GPU, as well as an increase in battery capacity by 20%. The device also includes a 65W super fast charger that can fully charge in under 43 minutes.
Additionally, the REDMAGIC 8 Pro has an upgraded dedicated gaming chip, the “Red Core 2,” which offers real-time adjustments on shoulder triggers, vibrations, touch, and sound effects during gameplay for an enhanced gaming experience. The CPO “cube performance optimizer,” enhances gaming stability by adjusting for in-game frame rates without increasing energy usage. It operates in conjunction with the cache and display, seamlessly and promptly processing images by utilizing the Magic GPU’s quintuple buffering feature when a picture needs to be displayed.
The new CPO features three triggers that are activated based on user interactions, without consuming more power. The first trigger, the interaction trigger, automatically reduces battery consumption when there is no user interaction. The second trigger, the scene trigger, optimizes performance when video playback or gaming interactions are detected. The third trigger, the render trigger, activates the magic GPU to enhance gaming frame stability.
An Enhanced and Vibrant Display with the 2nd Generation of UDC
The REDMAGIC 8 Pro boasts ultra-narrow bezels of 1.48 mm on the left and right, 2.28 mm on the lower bezel (chin), and 1.68 mm on the upper bezel (forehead). Its full-screen display is 6.8 inches, with AMOLED technology and an FHD resolution of 2480*1116. This results in a screen-to-body ratio of 93.7%. Working in collaboration with BOE technology, the device is equipped with UDC technology that delivers over 2 megapixels of visual brilliance at a peak brightness of 1300 nits, making it perfect for gaming outdoors. The device has three major improvements to its display, including independent pixel drive technology, a transparent circuit design, and a Pro chip optimization algorithm that reaches a high resolution of 400 PPI.
ICE 11 the Coolest Cooling System – Feels as Cool as It Looks
The REDMAGIC 8 Pro’s Vapor Chamber (VC) liquid cooling plate has been enhanced with a double layer and larger design, allowing it to effectively cover the battery, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, and Red Core gaming chips with a volume of 2068mm3. Its heat conduction efficiency has also been increased by 600%. Additionally, the device features nubia’s iconic 20,000 rpm built-in turbofan with RGB lights, which boasts ten layers of heat dissipation materials resulting in a maximum fuselage temperature of 41.70°C.
The utilization of blades that are ultra-thin at 0.01mm in size leads to a decrease in temperature by 2.7°C, a decrease in noise by 4dB, and an increase in airflow volume by 35%. The air duct space has also been adjusted to achieve a 35% increase in airflow. The mobile industry boasts one of the most efficient cooling systems, featuring a liquid cooling plate, graphene beneath the screen, a centrifugal fan, an air intake, and an aluminum middle frame infused with rare earth materials, copper foil beneath the display, a gel with high thermal conductivity, a composite material made of graphene, and a superconductive copper foil.
