Razer Phone An Android smartphone for gamers

The top and bottom rock front-facing Dolby ATMOS speakers with dual amplifiers, which means you will get a loud, crisp sound experience to go with the Quad HD display. There is no 3.5mm audio jack on the phone, but it has a USB type-C, which also functions as charging, data transfer, and audio port.

Powering the Razer Phone is the Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with Adreno 540 GPU. Razer had acquired Nextbit earlier this year, revealing plans to foray into the mobile phone segment.

We took a walk around the internet this morning to see if any tech journalists had managed to get a hands on with the Razer Phone and lo and behold The Verge had. Called Razer Phone, it comes with a display that supports refresh rates of up to 120Hz which should mean zero lag or stuttering while gaming.

The first smartphone from Razer is simply called Razer phone. The new Razer Phone is very different, resembling last year's crowdfunded Nextbit Robin more than any phone from the big guys.

I only had limited time to play with the device, but I did pop open the frame counter built into Android Nougat 7.1.1 (Oreo is expected on the phone in the Spring of 2018), and hopped into a game of Riptide. This allows gamers to keep playing all day long, while Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ enables rapid charging.

One of the key highlights of the Razer Phone is its 5.7-inch IGZO LCD Wide Color Gamut 1440 x 2560p screen which has been enhanced with a 120Hz refresh rate.

At the back you'll find a dual camera array with a 12MP f/1.75 wide angle sensor and a 13MP f/2.6 zoom sensor.


A 2017 flagship wouldn't be a 2017 flagship without dual rear cameras (unless you're the iPhone 8 or either Google Pixel 2 or 2 XL model, ) and the Razer Phone is no exception. It has dual-tone LED flash too. The phone comes with sharp edges and think display bezels.

That's right, the gaming giant-Razer has just announced their first smartphone, and it is a powerhouse. A wildly popular launcher, Nova Launcher Prime offers extreme customizability of the Android experience to suit every taste and need.

"Titanfall: Assault" from NEXON Co., Ltd. and Particle City, Inc. It includes custom ringtones by Razer DJs and custom wallpapers inspired by the world's top gaming titles, such as "Shadowgun Legends". "Razer has produced something that is a step ahead of any other mobile gaming device and I am delighted to be able to make this exclusive experience available to Three's customers".

Availability is first set to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, North America, Canada, Germany and France. Not only is the device fine-tuned for gamers but it will also be of appeal to customers looking for a best of breed entertainment device, thanks to its stunning display and great audio quality.

While the Razer Phone does have a fingerprint scanner, its placement is quite unusual.
