Razer Phone 2

Gaming Phones are really making a buzz in the smartphone market, earlier we have seen Nubia Red 2 and Xiaomi powered “Black Shark” in the market but all this was started by Razor Phones. Gaming peripheral maker Razer announced the Razer Phone 2 at a price tag of $799. The first Razer Phone was launched in November 2017 but never made its way to India.

The Razer Phone 2 is designed around gaming—it features a 5.7-inch 1440p UltraMotion display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The higher refresh rates help reduce the response time of the screen, which allows for a more precise gaming experience. Razer has opted for a more traditional (read “tried and tested”) aspect ratio of 16:9, which is optimized for most games.

Powering the Razer Phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with vapour chamber cooling. Razer claims the cooling system “efficiently sustains higher average frame rates, for a cooler and more comfortable experience.” Paired with the processor is 8GB of RAM and an option between 64GB and 128GB of storage.

The phone skips on all aesthetically pleasing goodies like an edge-to-edge display—it has a massive chin and forehead for accommodating giant stereo speakers. However, Razer has included a really cool RGB “light-up logo” at the back of the phone. It’s an unnecessary feature but is in line with Razer’s other devices. Also adding to the bulk of the device is a 4,000mAh battery with Qualcomm QuickCharge+.

Razer was not able to implement the Chroma lighting system into the original Razer Phone due to hardware restrictions at the time. The Chroma lighting is an LED light technology that Razer incorporates into many products such as keyboards, gaming mice, laptops, and more. Chroma strip will activate whenever a notification comes through. It will replace the usual LED notification light. The good part is that the company is reportedly working with Texas Instruments in the hope of including it this year.
