Razer took the wraps off its second-generation flagship gaming phone, the Razer Phone 2, last night. Besides the aforementioned RGB lighting system and a better chip, it's also equipped with a new vapor chamber cooling system that sounds extremely similar to what Samsung has been using in its flagships for several years now. Turning back to the front the Razer Phone 2 is said to be even louder and clearer with its upgraded speakers and Dolby Atmos. The phone is a successor of Razer Phone which was launched past year in November. How much for this wide-eyed gamer's puppy?
Razer Phone 2 delivers faster, cooler, and louder mobile gaming
It's unclear if the transparent Razer Phone 2 will cost any more or have the same internals.
A hefty 8GB of RAM should help the push for high-performance, but the 64GB of onboard storage seems a little trim. Razer has also increased the brightness of the display by 50% compared to its predecessor. One of those sensors has an f/1.75 wide lens with optical image stabilization, while the other is a longer lens with an f/2.6 aperture.
"When playing games on your phone, switching to the Raiju nearly feels like cheating", said Michael Weitz Razer product marketing manager.
The Razer Phone 2 will support Verizon in the U.S. Overall this phone measures 158.5 mm x 78.99 mm x 8.5 mm. On the topic of audio, Razer includes a 24-bit USB-C DAC. The front camera offers 60-FPS video at 1920x1080 for potentially crisp and smooth video chatting. The rear of the phone features the Razer triple-headed snake logo that glows in 16.8 million colours to provide app notifications. The listing, which has since been removed, included images of the handset, as well as some details about its new features, including the presence of RGB lighting and wireless charging. Out of the box, the device will be coming with Android 8.1 Operating system and might be getting further updates also. Just a few days ago, Google unveiled the Pixel 3 phones, practically confirming every rumor that we heard in the past few months.
