Razer Gaming Smartphone Launched

Posted November 03, 2017

Razer has now given a glimpse or initial impressions of its new smartphone that is established keeping in the mind the requirements of a gamer. But, at the same time, it is built to perform flawlessly in day-to-day tasks.

"What did we do with the Razer Phone?".

The premium smartphone market is dominated by Apple and Google. But can the Razer Phone compete in actual handling and physical use?

In January 2017, TechCrunch reported that Razer had acquired Nextbit, the creators of the Robin smartphone. It look sleek and stealthy, with a dark, anodized aluminum exterior. A fingerprint scanner is incorporated into the power key on the side - similar to some past Sony phones. Last but not least, Gorilla Glass 3 is employed to help keep the display scratch-free.

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. On the front, the smartphone features a fixed focus 8-megapixel selfie shooter. Unsurprisingly though, there's no headphone jack, which is the future trend, whether we like it or not. If you listened through headphones you should expect "audiophile-quality sound", due to the THX-certified USB-C audio adapter with a 24-bit digital audio convertor (DAC).

Connectivity options on the Razer Phone include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, 4G, and 3G. The Razer Phone sports dual 12-megapixel cameras on the back, one takes telephoto shots, while the other is used for wide shots, and a 4,000 mAh battery.

The Razer Phone is an Androind-powered smartphone which comes with "groundbreaking audiovisual technologies and processing muscle" and surprisingly it comes with a pretty decent size battery without sacrificing comfort.

Not only will this high refresh rate improve the look and playability of games (reducing lag), it'll also have an positive impact on scrolling through websites and social media.

Nope, the big deal here is UltraMotion, an adaptive display refresh technology that has more in common with big gaming monitors than smartphones. The Razer Phone has a set of stereo front-facing speaker with Dolby Atmos support.

Currently, the Razer Phone is available for pre-order for $799 and is scheduled to be released on November 17 in North America and Europe.

Another area where the Razer Phone is head and shoulders above other even flagship smartphones is the brilliant display.
