ASUS is not the only brand that makes the best gaming phones, is it? Nubia is yet again back with its RedMagic 8 Pro Gaming Smartphone that has the potential to break all the records set by other gaming phone brands. The RedMagic 8 Pro 5G would come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and have an under-display selfie camera, a tech that hasn’t been adopted by many brands as of now. Moreover, with an ICE 11.0 cooling system and a futuristic design, the RedMagic 8 Pro would probably be the best gaming smartphone in 2023. So, when is the RedMagic 8 Pro launching?

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, coming with many smartphones in 2023, has given a very respectable ANTUTU score and it is said to be the best and most powerful processor in an Android phone yet. Now just imagine what would happen if you pair that same processor with 8 GB of RAM, a 6000 mAh battery, and a superb liquid cooling system. Sounds like a recipe to make the perfect gaming phone, right? That is what you would get with the RedMagic 8 Pro 5G.

RedMagic 8 Pro Release Date: 16 January

RedMagic’s official website shows that the RedMagic 8 Pro will be launched on the 16th of January, 2023. So all those gamers who were expecting this phone to launch this year, well, this might be bad news for you. But don’t worry, no matter how late this gaming phone comes, it’s still a banger. You can watch the RedMagic 8 Pro launch event by visiting the official website and joining the launch event online.

The RedMagic 8 Pro is expected to be priced around ₹60,000 and this time, this gaming beast would make its way to India. If this happens, Indian gamers would have some other options than the previously available ones, which would be a good beginning.

Nubia would allegedly launch two gaming phones named the RedMagic 8 Pro and the RedMagic 8 Pro Plus. According to rumors, both these mobile phones would be identical in almost every aspect, except their charging speeds and storage expansion options. But if you ask me, I’d say that the brand would just launch one gaming device, the RedMagic 8 Pro as the same can be seen on the brand’s official website. Nonetheless, the RedMagic 8 Pro is going to be a smartphone of its kind with a display that would have no notch, no punch hole, and the in-display camera would be less visible than the last generation.

With all these things, this gaming phone’s design is bound to catch your eye, thanks to a robotic back panel that gives a different look to the RedMagic 8 Pro 5G gaming machine.

Here are the specifications of the RedMagic 8 Pro 5G gaming phone:
