The RedMagic 9 Pro has now arrived globally, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered gaming smartphone that will rival the likes of the ASUS ROG Phone 8. While the RedMagic 9 Pro is not shipping just yet, ZTE has detailed prices for multiple markets, as well as when pre-orders will open and initial orders will begin shipping.

To recap, the gaming smartphone debuted last month in ZTE’s home market alongside the RedMagic 9 Pro Plus.

Thus, the RedMagic 9 Pro reaches the Europe, the Americas and the UK with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and a 6,500 mAh battery that supports 80 W wired charging. Additionally, the gaming smartphone has a 6.8-inch AMOLED display that outputs at 2,480 x 1,116 pixels with a 120 Hz refresh rate and 1,600 nits peak brightness. Moreover, the BOE Q9+ panel has a flat finish and an under-panel camera to maximise its viewable area.
