The Red Magic 9 Pro will arrive on November 23, and the gaming branch of nubia started with the teasers. The first one is the side view of the smartphone, revealing it will be flat on both sides – no curved display and no camera bump whatsoever.
The image also showed a cooling vent on the side, which has been a staple in Red Magic flagships for the past few generations.
The cameras are not revealed, but we do not expect anything major for a phone that is aiming to lure gaming enthusiasts. According to Digital Chat Station, the main cam will be a 50 MP Samsung GN5 sensor with 1/1.57” size and OIS in front. The ultra-wide camera will be the very same Samsung JN1 variant, seen in the Xiaomi 14 and iQOO 12 – a 50 MP sensor with 0.64um pixel size.
So far, we’ve only heard about a Red Magic 9 Pro. There is still uncertainty whether nubia will introduce a non-Pro version or it will keep with the marketing logic of the previous series (the 8 and 8S) and bring a duo of Pro variants.
