Nubia has announced 2 gaming smartphones. You will have to pay for them, but this is one of the top solutions on the market.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset is gradually taking over the hearts and brains of flagships. Its main feature is support for ray tracing. Now, this processor will be put in two more smartphones – Red Magic 8 Pro and 8 Pro Plus.
Both versions have a 6.8-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a maximum brightness of 1,300 nits. Also, the manufacturer Nubia claims that thanks to PWM technology at a frequency of 1440 Hz, users will not have a headache when using the smartphone for a long time at minimum brightness.
