In a press event held late last night in London, folk at RAZER announced their first Android-powered smartphone whose design is reminiscent of Nexbit Robin and more or less of Sony’s Xperia phones range due to its rectangular form factor, and with lots of new things that gamers would have expected for Sony to delivery in the past but failed miserably.
The RAZER Phone is a total beast in every way. It features a 5.7-inch LCD IGZO display with 2K (1,440 x 2,570 px) screen resolution, Ultramotion technology and most importantly 120Hz refresh rate something we only see in PC monitors for gaming. It has an Aluminium build weighing in at 197 grams and it measures 8mm in thickness.
In addition, the RAZER Phone packs 8GB of RAM, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 CPU, 64GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card slot, a 4,000 mAh that promises to offer up to 12.5 hours of screen-on time while viewing videos/movies. Battery that also is rechargeable up to 85% in about 60 minutes through USB-C port. RAZER’s first smartphone also comes with dual front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos technology, which delivers cinematic audio in the palm of your hands. And they are not stopping here. RAZER says that it comes equipped with one of the best smartphone cameras in the industry. At the front there is an 8MP selfie snapper, while at the back it has a dual camera setup comprised of 2 x 12MP sensors with f/1.75 aperture and dual tone LED Flash.
