ZTE’s nubia brand has just launched its latest gaming powerhouses, the Red Magic 9 Pro and Pro+, packed with top-tier specifications. These devices are set to redefine the gaming phone landscape with their advanced features and robust performance.

Design and Display

Both models are powered by the cutting-edge Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and boast a sleek design, complete with shoulder keys and RGB cooling fans.

The screens are designed to minimize eye strain with 2,160Hz PWM dimming and peak at 1,600 nits brightness.

A unique aspect of these phones is the under-display 16MP front camera, ensuring an uninterrupted screen experience. The devices also feature an innovative UD fingerprint reader that doubles as a heart rate monitor.
