The Red Magic 9S Pro series of gaming phones is set to be unveiled on July 3rd, and it’s already breaking records. Leaks suggest these phones will be the world’s first (and possibly last) to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Leading Version (LV) chipset.

This morning, a Weibo post revealed an AnTuTu benchmark screenshot from a Red Magic phone with the model number NX769S_V2A. This phone, packing a whopping 24GB of hardware RAM and 1024GB of storage, absolutely smashed the benchmark with a score of 2,369,542 points – a new record for AnTuTu.

This powerhouse performance is likely due in part to the phone’s active cooling system, which utilizes a turbine to keep the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 LV chip from overheating.

Interestingly, the benchmark results hint that this chip might be a renamed version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, which offered higher clock speeds for its most powerful core at the expense of the other cores.

The question we’ve asked, and still asking is, as far as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 CPU is concerned, can any phone maker beat this record? Despite running the supposed Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 CPU for Galaxy, the S24 Ultra could barely touch 1.9M in Antutu score across multiple tests.

Maybe this is the best we can ever see with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 CPU, and maybe it is time to turn all attention to the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, which is already rumored to smash above 3M in Antutu score.
