In both cases reference is made to a Nubia smartphone, but it is very likely that it is the gaming phone. Devices that receive BT certification usually go out one month after appearing in the database. As a result, insiders speculate that the launch of Red Magic 8 Pro is expected (in China) for the month of December.

So, at least as far as the Asian market is concerned, it could have a debut ahead of forecasts (which point instead to Q1 2023).
