Razer launches smartphone built for gamers

  • Razer Phone Gaming Focused Smartphone Launched Price Specifications

After plenty of leaks and speculation the all-new Razer Phone was finally unveiled at a major event last night.

Besides, the RAM is equally supported by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Initially, the Razer Phone will run on Android Nougat but it will receive the upgrade to Android Oreo in spring of next year.

For the gamer in you, Razer has partnered with Tencent and Square Enix to offer popular multiplayer online battle (MOBA) "Arena of Valor", alongside of other games such as "Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition", "Shadowgun Legends", and "Titanfall™: Assault", to name a few.

To wrap up, Razer also announced a limited edition version of the phone although as far as I can tell the only difference is the Razer logo on that one will be green instead of chrome.

The Razer Phone has a recommended retail price of $699.

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

The new Razer handset will be available for pre-order from www.three.ie from 7th of November and is available to buy in Three stores from Friday 17th November 2017. It also opens new avenues for developers like Gameloft to make more console-quality titles for the Android smartphone.

Sound comes courtesy of Dolby Atmos, and the speakers are front-facing and promise to be loud - too bad if the bus wanker on the top-deck of your daily conveyance insists on playing KissFM at top volume.

According to Razer's CEO Min-Liang Tan, the device's 120-hertz ultra-fast refresh rate - the rate only present in iPad Pro which Apple calls it to be "the most advanced display on the plant" - will avoid motion lag, ghosting and stuttering.

Razer is arguing its "Ultramotion" technology is similar to G-Sync and allows the phone's frame rate to link to the GPU.

The dual, front speakers have zero distortion even at highest levels. Razer's headphone audio here is provided by a USB-C converter since it does not have a headphone jack, mind you. The phone's front-facing camera is 8-megapixels with an aperture of f2.0. Also, it's worth noting that the Razer Phone, the OnePlus 5, and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 are the only three phones in the list with 8GB of RAM. Most people already have the phone they want, and I'm curious to see how many will be wooed by nothing more than an (really nice) 120Hz display and the promise of Android gaming.

The Razer Phone has electronic image stabilization, which might be helpful while creating first-person gaming videos. Razer says that the phone's DAC is THX certified - which we would certainly hope, since they own THX.
