The nubia company released the new REDMAGIC 8 Pro dubbed “The King of Performance” in China on December 26th. The international version was also announced by the company soon to arrive
In the last few hours, nubia (here to visit the company website) presented the new REDMAGIC 8 Pro, nicknamed “The King of Performance”. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Red Core 2 with LPDDR5 x and UFS 4.0 for strong and long-lasting performance. Along with the industry’s first ultra-narrow-bezel OLED full screen and the second generation of the under-display camera. The design of the two editions is inspired by a “Hardcore Mech” style with robust body lines for an aggressive, simple and futuristic appearance. The “Dark Blade Warrior” has 12GB of RAM and 256GB of data storage, while Specter Warrior Edition has 16GB of RAM and 512GB of data storage.
Details on the new REDMAGIC 8 Pro from nubia
The latest evolution of the software, REDMAGIC OS 6.0, integrates more devices and platforms. REDMAGIC is capable of wirelessly projecting 120Hz with nearly zero latency to a PC. It is compatible with TVs via HDMI and USB and can be connected to monitors with Type-C cables. During the conference, nubia also revealed the new logo of REDMAGIC to embody its continuous and constant evolution to become more than a product, more than a gaming smartphone, but the right equipment for gamers. Redesigned with fans in mind. The new logo fits a new color palette with a more defined and reshaped structure to give players the ability to “win more games” and more.
Nubia’s REDMAGIC 8 PRO delivers powerful and long-lasting performance with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
Compared to the previous generation, REDMAGIC 8 Pro’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip offers a peak speed of 3.2GHz. A 37% improvement in CPU power efficiency and a 42% improvement in GPU performance. And yet an improvement in GPU performance and 50% higher energy efficiency. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is 100% fasterwith LPDDR5x memory and ROM up to 512GB. UFS 4.0 for long-lasting performance, with an Antutu score of 1348653. For a more intuitive gaming experience, there is also an upgraded “Red Core 2” dedicated game chip, which can adjust shoulder triggers, vibration, touch and sound effects in real time.
REDMAGIC 8 PRO from nubia: Near perfect performance with epic frame rates
Thanks to the GPU upgrade of REDMAGIC 8 Pro, the energy efficiency ratio of the device has increased by 20% and the life of the 6000mAh battery has increased by more than 20%. As for the cache and display, both process images synchronously and instantly by calling GPU Magic’s quintuple buffering when an image needs to be displayed. This technology, which is part of the cube performance optimizer (CPO), compensates for gaming frame rates without increasing power consumption for a more stable gaming experience.
Other CPO improvements consist of three triggers based on user interactions without increasing power consumption. First, in the absence of user interaction, the interaction trigger can automatically reduce battery consumption levels. Scene triggering can optimize performance when video playback and game interaction is detected. Finally, activating render trigger can activate the GPU to improve game frame stability.
ICE 11: the new cooling system with built-in fan
This device boasts an improved heat dissipation cooling system that employs ten layers of materials for heat dissipation. Including nubia’s iconic built-in 20,000rpm turbo fan with RGB lights for the transparent edition. Nubia’s turbo fan blades are shaped like shark fins with 0.1mm ultra-thin blades which can reduce the temperature by another 2.7°C, the noise by 4dB, and increase the airflow volume by 35 %.
With this new flagship device, nubia has patented the new liquid cooling plate “3D Icing Vapor Chamber” (VC). Added below the screen, the new VC combines several three-dimensional shapes and sizes to maximize space efficiency. As a result, its volume has reached the industry’s highest level of 2068 mm3 and the heat conduction efficiency has improved by 600% compared to previous models. The heat dissipation structure built into the tenth layer is one of the most efficient in the industry in terms of heat dissipation. With a maximum fuselage temperature of 41.70°C. Its ten layers consist of:
- 3D Icing VC liquid cooling plate
- graphene under the screen
- shark fin high speed centrifugal fan
- a snorkel
- it’s a aluminum core frame with the use of rare earth materials with ultra-soft and heat resistance characteristics
- copper sheet under the screen
- gel with high thermal conductivity,
- composite graphene and superconducting copper foil.
Ultra narrow bezel for true full screen with 2nd generation UDC
The latest flagship device from Nubia has a 93.7% screen-to-body ratio thanks to the 6.8-inch AMOLED camera with the first full-screen OLED camera in the mobile gaming industry. Also, with 1.48mm narrow bezels left and right, 2.28mm for the lower bezel (chin) and 1.68mm for the upper bezel (forehead). the bezels are as thin as possible. The second generation of UDC features three major improvements. First, the first independent pixel driving technology, where each pixel is controlled independently, further improving the sharpness of the screen. Then there is an improvement of the transparent circuit of the UDC and the shield circuit. It uses an innovative transparent circuit between the UDC and the screen to create a transparent effect. The latest improvement made to the UDC Pro chip is the optimization of the algorithm that allows it to achieve a high resolution of 400 PPI. As part of the improvements, the primary camera has also been updated by integrating the Samsung GN5 camera to offer 50 megapixels for stunning images and crystal clear videos.
Updated operating system with Mora, the REDMAGIC mascot with mecha-inspired design
Combat-ready device, REDMAGIC 8 Pro Specter Warrior edition features mecha design. With hard-looking lines and elegant aesthetic details that evoke a sense of depth and space. In contrast, the Dark Blade Warrior weaves its beauty between layers of light and shadow created by the polished glass. Both devices come with standard 165W chargers and other accessories. REDMAGIC 6.0 is the first virtual host on flagship smartphone for live streaming of games with “XR Labs”. To become the virtual assistant who reminds users of daily activities, calls and to be present in dynamic backgrounds, even in augmented reality. It offers gamers a smooth and immersive experience not only when playing games, but also when streaming movies, making video calls and more.
REDMAGIC 8 Pro is a gaming smartphone for everyday use, thanks to the cube performance optimizer that allows you to use the device for extended periods. It is also equipped with an upgraded primary camera with Samsung GN5 and powerful dual ultra-linear speakers with 1216+1115K that have achieved Snapdragon audio certification for headphone sound quality. As a result, enthusiasts can now enjoy 96KHz lossless audio quality, making the REDMAGIC 8 Pro the king of music. REDMAGIC 8 Pro is the king of high performance.
