Redmagic 8 Pro+ Optimus Prime Edition Smartphone

Redmagic has added a “plus” model to its new Redmagic 8 Pro gaming smartphone, and along with it, there is this edition that caught our eyes: the Redmagic 8 Pro+ Optimus Prime Edition. That’s right. It is yet another collab with Hasbro’s Transformers franchise following Bumblebee-themed 7s Pro and the Red Magic 7 Pro Optimus Prime and Red Magic 7 Decepticon Edition.

There is not a lot that differentiates between the plus and nonplus models. They are virtually identical with a few exceptions. The new Plus model supports a mind-bending 165 W magic flash charging and is supplied with a 165 W GaN power brick. Strangely, though, it has a 1,000 less mAh, at 5,000 mAh dual-cell battery.

Another key difference is the configuration. The new Pro+’s Matte is offered in 12+256 and 16+512 while the Void comes in a choice of 12+256, 16+512, and 16+1 TB configurations.

Now that we have gotten the specs out of the way, we can touch on the star feature: the Transformers aesthetics. The black is ditched in favor of a silver aesthetic with an entire back cover dedicated to Optimus Prime colors, i.e. red and blue.

The red and blue back cover also rocks the Autobots logo, along with the Transformers branding, as well as the flame motif live-action Optimus Prime is synonymous with. The device also gets a unique Transformers UI that has a Cybetronian flair.
