Currently, there are only a couple of brands that make gaming smartphones, Nubia and ASUS. Of course, Black Shark still breathes. But we don’t think it will release new smartphones in the new future. Well, there is also Razer. But we are talking about Chinese brands. Well, getting back to our two brands, Nubia has already announced that it will launch a new gaming handset in the coming weeks. As you guess, the latter will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship chip. Recently, a Nubia phone with model number NX729J passed TENAA certification, completing three certificates that are necessary to go to the shelves. That’s not difficult to guess that we are talking about the Red Magic 8 Pro, which has been leaked before.
Red Magic 8 Pro specs
As for today, a new model called “xiaoniu XN729J” appeared on GeekBench. The benchmark score information shows that the machine will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip as well as 12GB of memory. The single-core score of the machine is around 1500, while the multi-core score is around 5300.
However, at the moment, there is no certainty whether this is a product by ZTE or a new product of Red Magic. We have doubts because Red Magic has never used the prefix xiaoniu on models before. Instead, Nubia’s models all start with NX instead of XN. On the other hand, the last three numbers and codes are exactly the same as those of the Red Magic 8 Pro.
Judging from the parameters and photos previously released by TENAA, the machine uses a 6.8-inch OLED straight screen, supports off-screen fingerprints, and has a resolution of 1116*2480. In addition, from the photo, we learned that it adopts a transparent back cover design. Through it, you can see the second-generation Snapdragon 8 flagship chip installed inside as well as heat dissipation turbofan and other components.
Much earlier, we heard that the forthcoming Red Magic 8 Pro would use a 6.8-inch OLED straight screen without openings. As there are no bangs and holes on the screen, it’s reasonable to wait for an under-screen camera, which should have a 16-megapixel resolution.
Other than that, we know that the phone will come with a 50-megapixel main camera, which will be accompanied by 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel secondary lenses. The Built-in 5000mAh / 6000mAh battery will support 165W fast charging. The body measurements are 163.98 × 76.35 × 8.9mm, and the weight is 228g.
