Razer Announce Smartphone Designed for Mobile Gamers with Insane Specs


The gaming industry is no stranger to the Razer brand.

So far, Razer is working with Square Enix, Madfinger, Bandai Namco, Nexon, and more to optimise their games for the Razer Phone.

The company is focusing on handheld mobile devices with providing first 120Hz screen for phones, called Ultramotion, and awesome sounding speakers we've ever heard from a handset.

The first smartphone from gaming giant Razer will be available exclusively in Ireland on Three.

With the cream of specs on board, the Razer Phone can easily compete against the latest top-end flagships from other established players. Furthermore, the PC based Game Booster will also make its Android debut with the launch of the new Razer Phone.

The battery of the phone is worth mentioning. In addition to that, it also features a wide colour gamut (WCG) thereby making it capable to display vibrant colours. It is an adaptive refresh technology that synchronizes GPU and display.

A 120Hz "UltraMotion" LCD display that can run frame rates of up to 120 frames per second and has a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels.

Coming to its other specifications, the Razer Phone packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 paired with an 8GB of RAM.

Battery: 4,000mAh with Qualcomm QuickCharge 4+.

To look at the phone doesn't look too different from the competition.

Looking at those, it's clear the Razer Phone was made for specs-craving gamers because it doesn't appeal much elsewhere. The Razer Phone has dual rear 12MP cameras, with dual-tone flash to make sure pictures look natural.

The camera is where the Razer Phone starts falling short of market leaders like the iPhone and this year's Samsung Galaxy S and Note lines. The front-facing secondary is somewhat rudimentary - an 8MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture.

The dual, front speakers have zero distortion even at highest levels. To this end, it has endowed the device with dual Dolby Atmos front-facing speakers.

Popular gaming-centric paraphernalia manufacturer Razer announced just yesterday its foray into the smartphone world with a handset that seems like a surprisingly=good package. They bear THX certification for delivering crystal-clear sound. There's a fingerprint reader on the right side, a USB-C port on the bottom and a volume rocker on the left. The Nubia Z17 was the first device featuring the new Quick Charge 4+. The phone is priced at $700 in the U.S., £700 in the United Kingdom, and €750 in Europe. But one of the biggest selling points is the set is the 120Hz screen, a feature typically found in gaming monitors and a first for a smartphone.
