Razer reveals its first mobile gaming phone

02 Novembre 2017

In January Razer acquired Nextbit and now it has announced its first smartphone. They're big time - and they're a welcome change to the big lack of front-facing speakers on the market today.

The Razer Phone is available for pre-order now and ships on November 17.

The device has an angular design that's devoid of the curved edges and glossy finishes that appear on the Google Pixel 2 and iPhone X. But why would you want such a phone? This is further backed up by dual amplifiers, an audio adapter with THX certified DAC and Dolby Atmos Audio experience through which the sound quality can be customised depending on what you wish to use on the phone.

The device houses a massive 4,000mAh battery that supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+ for fast charging. To get the best possible audio experience, each speakers comes with its own dedicated amp.

But depending on how you hold phone your thumbs are still likely to cover those lovely speakers.

The smartphone comes loaded with a 5.7-inch QHD IGZO UltraMotion display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The notable thing about Razer phone's display is that it has a 120hz refresh rate which is something that doesn't often come with smartphones. However, the device, complete with its 1440x2560 and 120Hz variable refresh rate screen, has clearly been designed with gamers in mind.

Under the hood, Razer Phone is powered by Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset, paired with a whopping 8GB of RAM. It is perhaps a bit of a surprise that there is just 64GB internal storage (we would have expected 128GB, at the very least), but handily, there is a memory card slot too. 45,200), the Razer Phone will start shipping from November 12 with no word on India availability as of now. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the power button of the device located at the side, informed Business Insider. The device will launch with Android Nougat 7.1.1 and feature mostly-stock Android configuration.

Susan Buttsworth, CEO at Three's global opportunities development division at CK Hutchison, said: "The launch of Razer Phone with Three marks another step in growing our Group strategic partnership with Razer and our position in the wider mobile gaming space". Note that this is for the plain version with a white Razer logo on the back.

The Razer Phone is sleek at just 8mm thick and has an aluminum body.

Gaming major Razer bought out Nextbit earlier this year.
