The nubia Red Magic 8 Pro is coming in the next few weeks (or months, tops). This is made obvious by a new 3C certification the device has just received. While it doesn’t reveal a lot about the phone, the company already officially announced that its next gaming handset would use Qualcomm’s recently unveiled Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 top of the line chipset.
Additionally, the certification reveals the next Red Magic gaming phone will come with support for 165W wired charging. That’s up from the already insane 135W on the Red Magic 7 Pro and the Red Magic 7S Pro. These two got their 5,000 mAh cells from zero to 100% in 15 minutes, so the increased charging capacity might take that down even more, if the cell size remains the same.
Of course, we have to note that such speeds only apply to the Chinese Red Magic models, unfortunately – the global ones were both capped at 65W this year. It’s unclear if the situation will remain the same in 2023, when the 8 Pro is most likely launching.
Aside from the charging power, we also know that the Red Magic 8 Pro will have Bluetooth 5.2 on board and 5G connectivity, through two previous certifications. But that’s about it so far. Maybe it’s time for the leaks to start in earnest?
