Two weeks after the China version announcement, the much anticipated Global version of the Red Magic 8S Pro is also announced
The global versions of the Red Magic 8S Pro have been announced, and they come with a number of improvements over the Chinese version. The most notable change is the use of the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 processor, which offers a 5% increase in CPU performance and a 5.7% increase in GPU performance. The phone also has a dedicated gaming chip called the Redcore R2, which is designed to further improve gaming performance.

The rest of the specifications are the same as the Chinese version, including the 6.8-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, the 50MP main camera, and the ICE 12.0 cooling system.
The global versions of the Red Magic 8S Pro are available in three variants: 12GB/256GB, 16GB/512GB, and 16GB/512GB Aurora. The prices start at $650(~₱35,392.50) for the 12GB/256GB Midnight version and go up to $780(~₱42,471.00) for the 16GB/512GB Aurora version.
