The nubia Red Magic 8S Pro gaming smartphone is arriving on July 5, confirmed the gaming sub-brand today on Weibo. The launch event will begin at 3 PM and take place in China, and expectations are the phone to be the same as the Red Magic 8 Pro but with a newer Qualcomm chipset.
Rumors from earlier this month suggested the 8S Pro will have a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 platform, but we are yet to hear anything from the San Diego company about a new SoC. We also heard that a nubia gaming tablet might be on the way, but the ZTE-owned brand mentioned nothing on its page, and leaksters are staying silent on any particular details that might hint at an eventual product launch.
Getting back to the Red Magic 8S Pro, we expect the chipset to be the only difference from the Red Magic 8 Pro duo; everything else should be the same - big flat 6.8” AMOLED with an under-display selfie camera, 16 GB RAM and plenty of fast charging.
