The max spec of this phone is truly a portable PC.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2023So basically the SoC is the same Qualcomm SM8550-AC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that Samsung S23 serie... moreThey usually release 3 versions, each with a different backplate. The most expensive version is the one that has the transparent back. This has been true for the past few years for Nubia Red Magic phones so I don't expect them to change it anytime soon.
So basically the SoC is the same Qualcomm SM8550-AC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that Samsung S23 series has.
the design on this 8s pro doesn't look as appealing as the transparent one and di we really need 24GB of memory? My current device has 8 and it never have run out...
I would have been interested on the Redmagic 8 Pro but the software support isn't great as i'm planning to keep my phone in use for years.
I'll finally be able to emulate Linux on it without losing performance and finally be able to use it like a real PC, I'm obsessed with the idea that the smartphone can be a pocket PC, especially since the Red Magic are compatible with external screens.
If you want short-term happiness, this phone is for you. It only comes with 1 year security update, so 2 years later your smile's gonna fade away as hackers compromise your account.
In not one to complain about more than 6-8gb of ram. That's just silly. 12-16gb is fine. 24 is pushing it though and wasting resources that could have gone into something else.
rizki1, 27 Jun 2023Bruh if you want to emulate these consoles even a $200-$300 phone can do that too.
Also yo... moreNeither 200-300 phone or any switch can emulate the next big thing - pc emulation.
Not even counting the easy piracy on android.
i really cannot understand why release an S model, its not like 3.36ghz is that much different from 3.2ghz. Instead of releasing an S model they should just focus on improving the software and hardware quality of their next phone, maybe a bit of water resistance like on the rog phone.
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2023Really? Ok how about this lie from Samsung. Five years of Android update. But Samsung Galaxy N... moreThe new update policy started with 21 series.
So, from S21 and beyond, flagships will be getting 4 android versions and after that 1 more year of patches.
Obviously that at some point, patches will no longer be monthly. But every 3 months, then every 4 , then every 6.

And how is this related to the comment you replied to?
If you're CPT power, I'm not really surprised you're acting like that, it's like you never self questioning.
Isn't 8 plus gen 2= 8 gen 2 leading version

Steam Deck? Why not ROG Ally as well?

Yes it's $170 but limited/locked down to only nintendo stuff that you will have to buy games so it's not just $170 since you still gonna buy stupidly expensive games that rarely goes on sale in Nintendo Store.
Anonymous, 27 Jun 20238+g2 is what is inside samsung. Qualcomm is not increasing frequency again. So apart 24GB ram there will be no difference what a shame.
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2023Cpt , dont forget to login next time. Deal for overclocked was priority, not exclusivity. ... moreReally? Ok how about this lie from Samsung. Five years of Android update. But Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (August 2020) less than three years old device is not getting Android 14 with One UI 6. Can you explain this here please.
Silly article. There was never going to be 8+ Gen 2. This Leading Version of 8 Gen 2 is the same as 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy. Therefore tecincally it isn't the same chip as standard 8 Gen 2.
3.36hz 8 gen 2 is actually 8+ gen 2, except that Qualcomm didn't name it that way. There won't be another 8+ gen 2
