Earlier this month in January 2023, Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro,the company’s latest smartphone, was launched. This phone represents the company’s vision to transcend the boundaries of the traditional gaming smartphone by making it more than that. It has a new redesigned logo, alongside other features that make it an attractive option for gaming smartphone enthusiasts. As for the durability factor of the phone, you don’t have to wait too long since JerryRigEverything has just published its latest durability test that sheds some light on this issue.
As a result of the scratch test, the phone was able to withstand scratches up until the level 6 of the Mohs hardness scale, the deeper grooves appearing at the level 7 mark. Due to the fact that the phone was made out of aluminum and there were a lot of buttons on the phone, major scratches were seen on the edges of the phone when they were exposed to the sharp edges of a knife. As a matter of fact, the metal volume rocker was also removable for some reason. Furthermore, the capacitative shoulder triggers were not affected by the scratch test, which was an impressive result, as well. Despite being bent quite a bit, the Red Magic 8 Pro outlasted the bend test quite well. Despite the fact that the back glass had separated from the frame, the phone was able to stay intact after all.
A Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor powers the Red Magic 8 Pro, which is based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Due to the fact that this is a gaming phone, it needs to be equipped with a cooling system that consists of a composite graphene, a vapour chamber heat dissipation plate, an aluminum air box, a turbofan, high-conducting gel, copper coils, a cooling air duct, a turbo cooler, and graphene under the screen. A total of 16GB of RAM can be found on the device in addition to 512GB of internal storage. With a 6,000mAh battery unit and a 65W fast charging capability, the phone is equipped with a 6,000mAh battery unit. It comes with a Red Magic 6 based Android 13 operating system that is preinstalled on the smartphone.
