The Nubia Red Magic 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor clocked at 2.8GHz. This is the chipset we expected to power the first one. It also has 10GB of LPDDR4X RAM, putting it on the still short list of phones with that amount of RAM. That generous amount of RAM is paired with an equally generous 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
The Red Magic 2 uses a dual cooling system – Air + Liquid Cooling. This drops the CPU’s temperature to 13.2°C and increases CPU performance by up to 70%. There is DTS 7.1 surround sound, 3D stereo audio, AI noise canceling, DTSX Ultra and a SMART PA amplifier all for an impressive audio performance. There is also 4D gaming with real-time game scene recognition.
The phone runs Red Magic OS with Android 9 Pie underneath. There is a GameBoost mode that can be activated with a dedicated button. The RGB lights make a comeback and there are air triggers with touch sensors on the right side of the phone called Red Magic buttons.
There are still some unknown specs such as the screen, cameras, and battery capacity. Hopefully, those will be revealed at a later date.
The Red Magic 2 will also be crowdfunded like the original. It has already crossed its target of ¥1,000,000 by more than 200% even though the deadline is still December 6. If you are interested, head to the source link.
The phone is expected to start shipping a month after the crowdfunding ends. The crowdfunding price is ¥3888 (~$560) but we expect the phone to sell for a little more when it is available for purchase after a proper release.
