Qualcomm and RedMagic launch the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen2, which now comes with more vitamins for the second half of 2023.
from among gaming mobiles available in the Android catalog the truth is that it is difficult to find one that has a moderately elegant design so as not to clash in our day to day, and it is that this type of device always has industrial designs, colored lights and quite stridency, something that We also see in this new RedMagic 8S Pro although from a more classic base and one more approach for all.
Be that as it may, RedMagic spares no expense when equipping its new flagship phone specifically designed to play, and that is that as our classmates told us GSMArenathe RedMagic 8S Pro will probably be the most powerful mobile todaystarting from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen2 chipset that is released breaking the platform’s hegemony Snapdragon for Galaxy.
In practically all points the firm has improved cleave from Nubia to Red Magic 8 Proand is that there are news not only in the casing, now with a fresher and more modern look that mixes concepts gaming but without reaching overload, we will also find a updated hardwarea more capable screen and a redesigned cooling system which is more efficient.
Let’s start with the obvious, as is obvious, and that is that the great novelty of the RedMagic 8S Pro is that of Brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen2 chipset boosting clock speed from the main 3.2 GHz core to the 3.36GHzas well as the Adreno 740 GPU that goes from 680 MHz to 719 MHz. This means a 5% higher performance in CPU and 5.7% in GPU.
It is official that Samsung loses the exclusivity of the “vitaminated” Snapdragon 8 Gen2, which becomes this premiere Snapdragon 8+ Gen2 with the RedMagic 8S Pro.
It is basically the same version overclocked which samsung used with the tagline ‘for galaxy’but now released and for everyone, also arriving accompanied by a beastly RAM memory that can reach from 12 to 24 GB according to configurations, always LPDDR5x type.
The storage is of type UFS 4.0 also with the latest technology, being able to choose units of 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB.
Nor is it lacking, to complete such potential, the Red Core 2 proprietary chip that offloads tasks to the Snapdragon taking with it the calculations related to AI and image processing.
there is also a new improved refrigeration unit, ICE 12which adds 5W/mK thermal paste and improves the air duct going up to the active fan up to 20,000 revolutions per minutewhich has RGB LED lights and gives a lot of personality to the rear.
All this arrives embedded in a aviation aluminum chassiswhere a screen is integrated 6.8-inch AMOLED and FHD + resolution (2,480 x 1,116 pixels), which offers 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 spectrum. This screen is protected by a Gorilla Glass 5 glass and peaks up to 1,300 nits of brightness, with a refresh rate of 120 hertz and a 20:9 format.
The abilities gaming start in a ultra fast touch digitizercapable of reaching a sampling of up to 960 hertzadding as you would expect two triggers on the side frame with 520 hertz sampling and a response time of just 7.4 milliseconds.
The most performance hardware joins a unique cooling system, redesigned and with a 20,000 rpm fan, although the ‘gaming’ capabilities with software and custom optimizations stand out, two triggers on the side frame and a touch response time of 7, 4 milliseconds.
There is a software optimization that will allow you to take advantage of all this technology to play, with a mode gaming maximum performance and an option for share screen also at 120 hertz via Red Magic Studio. The novelties do not stop there, because we have two speakers in stereo configuration compatible with DTS:X Ultra technologycompleting the cast with USB-C video output, 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and charging up to 80 watts via USB-C cable.
The battery is 6,000mAhboasting RedMagic of a thin layer of graphene under the screen that allows better distribution of heat and reduce device temperature while charging at full power.
As for the camera, there are no changes, which is why we have left it for last, with a 16 megapixel front sensor integrated under the screenin addition to a rear camera starring the 50 megapixel GN50 sensor with f/1.9 aperture and PDAF autofocus, accompanied by a 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle and another 2-megapixel macro for focus related calculations.
