About a month ago, we heard that the Razer Phone 2 will be a thing. There is now more proof to that, thanks to a couple of paragraphs in the company’s financial report.
As reported by SlashGear, the report states that Razer’s “next-generation products” experienced a growth spurt of 432.3% year on year. In other words, that’s US$16.5 million in growth, which was attributed to the Razer Phone.
Following that, there was this bit in the report that reads “Razer is now focusing its resources into the development of the second generation Razer Phone and accompanying software releases which will extend its software and services from PC into the mobile market.”
When it comes to PC software and services, there are numerous, even if all of them fall under the two main umbrellas – Razer Synapse and Razer Cortex. Then there’s the zVault with its virtual credits and loyalty reward points, zGold and zSilver, respectively. Razer Pay will also very likely come pre-installed.
On the hardware side of things, there’s nothing to go on but it’s assumed that the 120Hz display will remain, if not improved upon. If the phone is to really be released by this year as the initial rumours go, then it’s also likely to be launched with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 mobile processor. If the announcement comes at the very end of the year, however, it could potentially be announced alongside Qualcomm’s rumoured Snapdragon 855 mobile processor to power it.
