As gaming smartphones have started to heat up with the entry of the ROG Phone, the Razer Phone 2 has just been announced and unfazed of its new competition. The folks from Razer are focused to give their fans a phone that is not only used for work, but also be enjoyed for gaming and entertainment purposes.
The Razer Phone 2 comes with a 5.7-inch IGZO LCD screen with 1440 x 2560 resolution. It boasts of a 120Hz refresh rate, the only phone in the world to have this feature. Noticeable in the new Razer Phone are its front bezels on the top and bottom. Unlike the other flagship smartphones that were released this year, the Razer Phone 2 cannot have thin bezels as they would affect the gamers’ handling of the phone. The bezels have dual front-facing stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos 5.1 Surround Sound.
Inside the hood of the Razer Phone 2 is a 2.8 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Processor with 512GB of Internal Storage and 8GB of RAM. It also has a Vapor-Chamber cooling system that allows heat to spread throughout the phone through a custom vapor chamber which vastly increases the surface area for heat to dissipate, resulting in fewer hot spots. This allows greater performance and stability compared to traditional cooling methods.
Its cameras look compelling as well. Dual cameras composed of 12 Megapixels with f/1.75 and OIS and 12 Megapixels with telephoto can take great pictures. The front camera comes with a 8 Megapixel for selfies.
Other features of the Razer Phone 2 are its IP67 rating (water resistant up to 1 meter), a 4,000 mAh battery capacity and wireless charging. For those who love RGB, you’ll be glad to know that the new Razer Phone now supports Razer Chroma. The lighting of the phone’s Razer logo can be changed with the Chroma app according to your mood and personality.
The Razer Phone 2 is priced at $799 and will be available in mirror and satin versions.
