Holiday session is approaching and now it’s time for all the smartphone OEM to launch their flagship in the market to get the best sales from the upcoming holiday session. We have seen the launch of flagship smartphones from Samsung and Apple in recent time. Now the Razer has sent the Razer Phone 2 launch invite.
Razer, the gaming and peripheral company, has been rumoured to launch the second-generation gaming smartphone for a while now. In an earning call a week ago, the company confirmed that it was working on the successor to the original gaming-centric smartphone, though no features were revealed.
Razer Phone 2, the successor to its first gaming smartphone, the Razer Phone. Earlier this month, Razer confirmed that the original Razer Phone was a success, which prompted the development of the second-generation Razer gaming smartphone that could be unveiled later this year.
The event is set for October 10, which will take place at its headquarters in Hollywood, California. Like last year, the event will be hosted by Razer CEO Min-Lian Tan. As always, Razer is keeping its cards close to the chest, not offering any details. Interestingly, the event invite mentions “flagship gaming” and shows a green outline of what appears to be a smartphone. This seems to suggest that the company will launch the Razer Phone 2 on October 10. It is important to highlight the Razer Phone 2 launch will happen the day after Google Pixel 3.
Rumoured Razer Phone 2 Specifications
A device alleged to be the Razer Phone 2 also appeared on Geekbench and AnTuTu earlier this month. As per the AnTuTu listing, the Razer Phone 2 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with 8 gigs of RAM and 512GB of internal storage, while Android 8.1 Oreo will handle things on the software side.
Interestingly, based on the alleged renders, Razer Phone 2 will have an identical design to the original. The listing claims that the upcoming device will pack a QHD display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, and not an 18:9 aspect ratio which has now become a mainstay on high-end devices.
