We won't know how well Razer's new gaming beast will hold up for regular folks until it's out in the wild, but on paper it seems like a promising little gadget that might be stiffer competition than you'd expect. All these leaked specifications suggest the phone is squarely aimed at hardcore mobile gamers.
The design of the phone as was depicted in the retailer site is however conventional at best, with the 5.72-inch display flanked at the top and bottom with sizeable bezels. Be it with the Nokia N-Gage, the Acer Predator 6, or the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, the experiment has never quite worked out. In fact, with that edge-mounted fingerprint sensor, we'd not be surprised if some people mistook it for one of those Xperias. The Razer phone itself is housed in an aluminum chassis, and measures in at 6.2 x 3.1 x 0.3 inches and weighs 197 grams / 6.9 ounces. It's also worth noting that Razer has licensed the paid version of the popular Nova Launcher Prime, so users won't have to deal with bloatware. Combined with the "Ultramotion" 120hz display, we compared this feature to Nvidia's G-Sync technology. Our demo units even had a frame counter so we could see this in action.
The smartphone has 120-hertz UltraMotion display built by Sharp.
The Razer Phone is more than its bitchin' display.
Another impressive feature leaked on the 3G website is Razer Phone's support for Dolby ATMOS sound for "dual front-facing speakers and amplifiers".
Gamers being gamers, over time they've cultivated a stigma surrounding mobile games, that they aren't as "real" as games on PC, console, or even dedicated gaming handhelds. It comes with a gaming mode which custom settings for different games called the razer game booster. An Oreo update is expected in the first quarter of 2018. Its unheard of 8GB of RAM means that apps like Twitter and Chrome should open and perform with a snap. But you don't need Qualcomm's most powerful system-on-a-chip to do that. There's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor inside, complete with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of storage that's expandable by up to 1TB via microSD. Razer reckons you'll get 85 percent charge from an hour at the plug, which is a solid effort considering the size of the cell. There's an f/1.75 wide-angle lens and an f/2.6 telephoto one, allowing for optical zoom. However, 120Hz capture is also promised soon. Large front-facing speakers are positioned above and below it, a design that Razer says is optimised for the landscape orientation most will use when gaming or watching videos without hands getting in the way. That's pretty standard as a SIM-free cost for premium devices, such as the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Three will be the exclusive carrier partner here, and the phone will be available in Three stores around the country from November 14th. The Razer Phone will retail for $699.99, and will go on sale in launch countries on November 17th. Right before its launch, a listing of the Razer Phone has leaked revealing all its details.
