Razer Phone Launched – A Gaming Beast With SD835 & 8GB RAM!
Razer are well-known for their gaming PCs, laptops and gaming accessories. This is their first smartphone.
Gaming major Razer bought out Nextbit earlier this year. This acquisition helped Razer speed up their smartphone ambitions. Now, they have released a beast of a smartphone, the Razer Phone which is touted to be a serious gamer’s smartphone. But, at the same time, it is built to perform flawlessly in day-to-day tasks.
Razer is famous for their high-powered gaming laptops! Their new smartphone carries these performance gaming genes and could prove to be the toughest competition to Samsung’s Galaxy series smartphones so far.
Razer Phone – Specifications and Features
With the cream of specs on board, the Razer Phone can easily compete against the latest top-end flagships from other established players.
Design And Build
The Razer Phone carries some of the design cues from the Nextbit Robin, with its angular body and round design elements. It look sleek and stealthy, with a dark, anodized aluminum exterior. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the power button, located on the side.
The Razer Phone sports a 5.7 inch Quad-HD display with a wide color gamut and 120Hz refresh rate (the same as on an iPad Pro). This is the first smartphone to feature such a high screen-refresh rate. It helps render the game graphics even more smoothly than regular smartphones. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The Razer phone packs in the latest, ultra-fast, octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor, clubbed with an Adreno 540 GPU and 8GB of RAM!
The smartphone will run Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box, with a promised update to Android 8.0 Oreo by early 2018.
The Razer phone will feature 64GB of on-board storage, which be further expanded up to 2TB with an external memory card.
The Razer smartphone has a dual rear camera setup with 12 megapixel wide angle lens combined with another 12 megapixel 2x optical zoom lens. At the front, it has a wide-angle, 8 megapixel selfie-shooter.
It has dual front-facing, Dolby Atmos speakers with high-end dual amplifiers. One for each speaker! Unsurprisingly though, there’s no headphone jack, which is the future trend, whether we like it or not. It will ship with a THX-certified USB C type headphone adapter.
It supports all 4G LTE bands, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.2, NFC, GPS and comes with a USB Type C port.
The Razer phone is powered by a huge 4,000mAh battery, which is a good thing since this smartphone is aimed towards serious gamers.
