Nubia Technology has announced its latest generation flagship smartphones, the Red Magic 8S Pro and the Red Magic 8S Pro+, in its home market of China. The tech company is slated to deliver the first-ever smartphone that rocks an astounding 24GB of RAM.

In terms of display and design, the two new smartphones in the Red Magic lineup are pretty similar on the outside. Both have a micro-etched embossed texture on the rear panel. The Red Magic 8S Pro also comes with the iconic RGB-enabled fan that is designed to not only cool the device, but provides that gamer feel to it as well. The front panel of both devices sports a front-facing camera under the screen, allowing for a seamless viewing experience (no notch!).

Speaking of the display, it will be a 6.8-inch OLED panel, offering a 2480 x 1116 pixel resolution. It will also include a 120Hz refresh rate, 960Hz touch sampling rate, 10-bit color depth, 1300 nits of peak brightness, and a 100 percent DCI P3 color gamut, according to a report by GizmoChina.

Powering the next iteration of the Red Magic smartphone is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 processor. This will be a step up in processing power over the current Red Magic 8 Pro model, which runs on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The 8+ Gen 2 has a higher clock speed of 3.36GHz and will be paired with up to a gargantuan LPDDR5X 24GB of RAM and 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage.

The 8S Pro+ model will include the same battery, but bumps up the fast-charging power to 165W, powering up the device in a mind-boggling 14 minutes.
