After being leaked early thanks to a posting from Amazon Italy, Razer has officially unveiled details on the Razer Phone 2. And it looks to be a damn impressive mobile gaming device.
After getting a good look at the device in the announcement trailer above, it appears as though the design hasn’t been drastically altered between the original Razer Phone and the Razer Phone 2. The only thing that appears to be blatantly different is the positioning of the new phone’s dual camera.
Much like Razer’s line of gaming PCs and accessories which feature customizable lighting, the Razer Phone 2 will sport a “Razer Chroma RGB logo”. The ability to customize the color of the Razer Phone’s back logo was a much requested feature. It appears as though fans got their wish.
As far as specs go, the Razer Phone 2 utilizes a Qualcomm® Snapdragon 845 (2.80 GHz) and Adreno 630 GPU chipset. Cooling is superior to the first phone thanks to what Razer describes as a “unique vapor chamber”. RAM remains the same at a solid 8GB, but storage is a bit lackluster for today’s standards at a mere 64GB.
Screen real estate remains the same with a 5.72″ LCD panel that supports QHD resolution. The devices refresh rate touts a variable 120Hz, still representing the only mobile phone to do so a year after the initial Razer Phone made it happen.
The Razor Phone 2 will also incorporate Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+ wireless charging into its design. And just like last year’s model, the phone will house a 4,000mAh battery. The newer rendition is also confirmed to be waterproof.
The Razer Phone 2 will retail at $799.99 and can be purchased today on Razer’s site. This looks to be the ultimate mobile device to this point to take your gaming on the go.
