Razer has just announced the Razer Phone 2. With the company now willing to party amidst the whole Black Friday season, Razer has just dropped the price of the original Razer Phone by $300 as the new Razer Phone 2 expands its market reach.
The price drop comes along with the final thanksgiving season when pretty much everyone indulges themselves in the whole Black Friday sale craze. Samsung and OnePlus have begun their price cuts and it now seems like Razer is feeling the urge to give a price reduction.
The Razer Phone now retails at $399 after the price cut and is available from the official Razer Store right now. Given that Razer has finally given the Razer Phone a price cut, it would only be sensible for Razer to continue selling the Razer Phone for $399 until they run out of their final batch of stocks. The Razer Phone 2 on the other hand though seems to be unscathed when it comes to its price and would continue retailing for its intended price of $799.
With the Razer Phone now getting a price cut, this basically means that the Razer Phone is the cheapest and only phone to offer a 120Hz display out of the box for just $399. Disregarding the launch of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150/855 SoC, the Snapdragon 835 in the Razer Phone isn’t all the bad, especially when you couple it with some of those incredible grooves and features Razer has made a signature out of.
Internally, with the Razer Phone, we’re looking at a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 8GB RAM, QHD 16:9 120Hz display, dual front-facing speakers enhanced by THX and Dolby Atmos along with a large 4000mAh battery to make the Razer Phone a powerhouse of its own.
Whether the device would be worth it has to be boiled down to all of the extras the Razer Phone brings to the table. Samsung has reduced the price of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus to $519 and $629, respectively. While OnePlus has reduced the price of the OnePlus 6 to just $429. Both OnePlus and Samsung have very aggressive offerings for the whole holiday season craze.
Both phones feature some very modern cues in their designs as well as updated internals compared to the original Razer Phone. One thing that neither of the two offer but the Razer Phone offers is the dual-front facing speakers as well as that crispy 120Hz display upfront. Whether you’re willing to live with that is up to you. However, if someone were to ask us, our answer would gravitate in Samsung and OnePlus’s favor.
