New Red Magic 8 Pro Launches Globally On February 2

The most recent iteration of the Red Magic phone was released in China just a few weeks before the year 2022 came to a close; now, a couple of weeks later, the 8-series is prepared to be released in other countries. The corporation made some minor adjustments to the branding, and now there is no longer a Pro+ model; in its place is the Void.

Red Magic 8 Pro feature:

The “Matte” model of the Red Magic 8 Pro is the entry-level model and gets its name from the textured and opaque back panel. This one, exactly like the Pro phone that was released in China, has 12 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 256 gigabytes of storage space.

The second choice is referred to as “Void,” and it is comparable to the Pro+ in that it has 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space. Although the Void is not simply a rebranding of the Pro+, there are some key distinctions between the two for the worldwide release.

The only significant difference between the two models is that both charge at 65W and have a battery capacity of 6,000 mAh. For the sake of comparison, the Red Magic 8 Pro that is offered in China has the same battery capacity but is equipped with 80W charging. This results in a 0-100% charge time of 35 minutes for the Chinese model and 43 minutes for the international one. On the Chinese market, the Pro+ has a battery that can charge at 165W and has a capacity of 5,000 mAh; however, this feature will not be available in other markets.

Red Magic 8 Pro specification:

Our in-depth evaluation of the Red Magic 8 Pro provides additional information that can be accessed by the reader. To cut a long tale short, it sports a 6.8-inch display with a resolution of 1,116 x 2,480 pixels, an AMOLED panel, a refresh rate of 120 hertz, and a touch sampling rate of 960 hertz. Under the screen is where you’ll find the 16-megapixel front-facing camera (2nd generation UDC tech). In addition to the touch screen, there are also two shoulder triggers that also utilise touch technology and have a sampling rate of 520Hz.

The phone is equipped with LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage, as expected, and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. The chipset is kept cool by the ICE 11 system, which is a combination of new materials that allow for increased heat transfer and an enhanced 20,000 RPM fan that has been developed to increase airflow while simultaneously reducing noise levels. When not being used for gaming, the Cube Performance Optimizer keeps power consumption at a minimum and maintains consistent frame rates.

In addition to having a 3.5mm headphone port, the smartphone is equipped with stereo speakers and two X-axis linear motors. There are nine antennae for 5G connectivity, and the wireless system is equipped with Wi-Fi 7 (4×4 MIMO). The primary camera on the back of the device now features a sensor that is capable of 50 megapixels and is manufactured by Samsung. Next to it is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera.

A final note on how to differentiate between the two models is that the rear of the Void is see-through, just like the back of the Pro+. This style was inspired by the colors of galaxies that can be displayed by the active cooling fan that has RGB illumination. These colors were inspired by the void that exists between galaxies. Even though you can’t see the fan, the RGB LEDs on the Matte model are still present; however, they are now located on a strip.
