The Red Magic Series from Nubia is arguably the best when it comes to mobile gaming. And the 2023 iterations are official: Red Magic 9 and Red Magic 9 Pro Plus with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, graphene cooling, and a larger air duct. In this article, we’ll delve into the specs, features, and expected price of the Red Magic 9 Pro and Red Magic 9 Pro Plus in Nepal.

Nubia Red Magic 9 Series Overview:

Top Notch Gaming

The Red Magic 9 Pro and 9 Pro+ duo pack everything for a serious gamer. Powering the core of these devices is the latest and greatest flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This TSMC’s 4nm fabbed SoC boasts a prime Cortex-X4 at 3.3GHz, three Cortex-A720 at 3.15GHz, two Cortex-A720 at 2.96GHz, two Cortex-A520 at 2.26GHz, and an Adreno 750 GPU, with a top-notch performance on both CPU and GPU side.

To make the most out of such horsepower, the Red Magic 9 Series packs an updated ICE 13 cooling system with a 10,182mm2 area coverage. Nubia claims up to 18 degrees of temperature drop with this.

On top of that, you get a graphene layer and a larger air duct for better airflow. Plus the internal fans spin at 22,000 RPM with 30% improved thermal conductivity than the last gen. And this makes it the ultimate cooling system on a smartphone.

Design and Display

The Red Magic 9 siblings boast an identical flat frame design. Nubia has gone with an aviation-grade aluminum material for the frame and a flat glass panel. The camera sensors are tucked inside with no visible bumps on the surface. You get three color options for both models: Black, Transparent White, and Transparent Black.

Red Magic 9 Pro Design and Display

As for the display, both smartphones sport a 6.8-inch flat AMOLED panel with a 2,480 x 1,116 resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. This BOE-made screen boasts 1600nits of peak brightness and 2,160Hz PWM dimming. You get an under-display front camera plus a fingerprint scanner. The latter also doubles as a heart rate monitor.


Even as a gaming device, you get a fairly capable triple-camera setup here. It is headlined by a 50MP Samsung GN5 sensor with OIS, a 50MP ultrawide unit, and a 2MP macro sensor. Meanwhile, the indisplay front camera is a 16MP snapper with 1080p recording.
