Razer has finally announced the Razer Phone 2. After a long wait and series of rumors, the Razer Phone 2 is finally here featuring some impressive additions and a host of new features that many may crave for.
At the event today, Razer CEO, Min-Liang Tan took it to the stage to unveil the Razer Phone 2 himself. This year’s Razer Phone 2 comes with a much-updated spec sheet along with a few more Razer signature finishes. As we noted a while ago, these gaming phones are definitely rejuvenating what it means to move the smartphone market forward.
Razer Phone 2 – Specs, Features, And Images
In typical Razer fashion, the new Razer Phone 2 yet again features Razer’s classy blocky design along with Razer Chroma integrated into the rear logo of the device. In addition to that, Razer has retained its gamer qualities by yet again packing the Razer Phone 2 with a 120Hz display along with 120Hz touch sensing capabilities. Contrary to last year’s metal design, this year’s Razer Phone 2 features a glass-back body as well as those massive front-facing speakers for that incredible media experience. On top of that, Razer decided to take the audio game even further by becoming the only phone to feature both, HDR and Dolby Surround 5.1 on a phone with Netflix. Further adding to the excitement, Min-Liang Tan announced that the Razer Phone 2 would also support wireless charging and Quick Charge 4.0 out of the box allowing it to be capable of charging the device from 1% to 50% in 30 minutes.
Several other improvements were also announced at the event. In fact, Razer also showed interest in improving the camera game on the Razer Phone 2. Not only did they reposition the dual camera setup with the Razer Phone 2, but they also announced how they’ve worked on improving low-light performance on the Razer Phone 2. In addition to that, users should expect the Razer Phone 2 to take some great photos with the addition of the new Portrait, Beauty and Panorama mode.
Regarding the internal specs, there’s no surprise what Razer has chosen to power the Razer Phone 2 except for the fact that the device comes with 64GB of internal storage only. This may be a bit of a bummer as we did initially speculate that Razer may want to upgrade its storage capacity with the Razer Phone 2. The rest of the spec sheet screams performance. With the Razer Phone 2, we’re looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Processor, 8GB RAM, 64GB UFS ROM, 5.72-inch IGZO 1440 x 2560 display and a 4000mAH battery to juice up your sessions to extended periods of gaming.
Pricing and Availability
The Razer Phone 2 is set to launch for as low as $799 and would run you back another $100 if you opt to get the Satin Black color. The phone would be available unlocked throughout North America and a number of regions across Europe and would be available in two colors at launch, Satin Black and Mirror Black. If you do plan to take advantage of wireless charging on the Razer Phone 2, you’d have to pick that up separately.
