It has been rumoured for the longest times, and now, the Razer Phone is finally official. Featuring a 120Hz display, Qualcomm’s best chipset yet and a generous amount of RAM, Razer’s first smartphone is touted as a gamer’s smartphone.
As expected, the Razer Phone is very much like what we’ve seen before. It does indeed sport a rather square-ish design, and it bears a striking resemblance to the Nextbit Robin; not much of a surprise there.
Made from the same metal chassis as the Razer Blade laptops, the Razer Phone also comes with a 5.7-inch 1440p IGZO 120Hz display. This will definitely appeal to gamers who want the best refresh rate, and the experience should be similar to using the iPad Pro 10.5 – the tablet also has a 120Hz display.
Other specifications of the Razer Phone include a Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, front-facing stereo speakers – each speaker comes equipped with individual amplifiers – as well as a dual-camera system on the back.
The phone’s dual-camera system consists of two 12MP sensors with wide-angle and telephoto lens. Not to forget, the Razer Phone also comes standard with a generous 4000mAh battery as per rumored before. Oh, there’s no headphone jack too.
If you’re keen to get the new Razer Phone, you’ll have to fork out USD 699 (about RM2960). The smartphone is expected to ship on 17 November, but as usual, it remains to be seen whether Razer’s first smartphone will be made available in Malaysia.
