Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro Launched with SD 8 Gen 2 SoC, 50 MP camera and more
On Monday, the world’s markets were introduced to the Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro range of gaming smartphones.
Last month, the phones were first released in China. The Red Magic 8 Pro “Void” is now the new name for the upgraded Pro+ version.
The “Matte” designation for the entry-level Red Magic 8 Pro is a nod to the device’s textured, opaque rear. The Matte version shares the same 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage as the China-exclusive Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro smartphone. These new smartphones are an upgrade from the company’s previous Red Magic 7 Pro series.
Equivalent to the Pro+, the Void model comes with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space. The global variant also has a few additional key differences. Different from the Chinese Red Magic 8 Pro and Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro+ models, the Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro phones have a 6,000mAh battery and charge at 65W.
