Razer Phone 2 officially revealed

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Razer Phone 2 follows in the footsteps of the Razer Phone released back in 2017, seeing the first dedicated gaming phone to be released to the wider market. The Razer Raiju Mobile supports flagship Android phones and the biggest titles in mobile gaming, which include "Vainglory", "Lineage 2", "Dead Trigger 2" and "Gear-Club", and many more.

The Razer Phone 2 is now up for sale Stateside for $799.99 (~R11 732), and by all accounts looks to be a great all-round flagship phone, and not just a gaming-focused device.

The phone is also water resistant with the IP67 rating.

On the back of the phone, Razer has completely redesigned the dual-camera system, which now uses Sony camera sensors with optical image stabilisation. In addition Razer Phone 2 received a double main camera with a resolution of 12 + 12 MP and front 8 MP. On the software front, the Razer Phone 2 runs Android 8.0 Oreo with the popular Nova launcher layered on top.

And NO, there's no NOTCH on the device. The pre-orders will begin at 12:01 AM PT in the U.S on October 11. The phone also supports fast battery charging 24W (Quick Charge 4+) and Wireless fast charging 15W feature. A hearty 4000 mAh keeps the light on during those long title sessions, and the familiar tri-headed snake logo alone raises the framerate twofold. The device lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack but Razer has bundled a 24 bit DAC dongle with the phone.

Aaron Ramsey: I thought I had agreed a new contract with Arsenal
We thought we were in a position where we had agreed a deal but that's no longer the case. "That's a decision that they have made".

In terms of specifications, the listing suggests that the Razer Phone 2 sports a 5.72-inch QHD LCD display with a 1440×2560 pixel resolution. Razer says that the phone is the only one that supports Netflix certified HDR video with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.

Boasting up to 30% increased performance when compared its predecessor, Razer has taken steps to substantially improve not only the components found inside the phone but also the methods with which they're cooled. The battery has a capacity of 4,000 milliampere hours with the possibility of rapid and wireless charging. Razer made good on a similar promise with the last phone, so we're expecting the update to actually happen on schedule-it's just a disappointment that it has to be an update at all. For the front, it has a 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. Razer claims this is the only display in the industry that offers both 120 Hz screen refresh and 120 Hz touch sampling.

The Phone 2 might not have every whiz-bang flagship feature, but it stickers at a relatively modest $799 starting price.

The Razer Phone 2 also goes one-up with connectivity, offering Gigabit LTE (1.2Gbps) at CAT 18, which is theoretically 20 per cent faster than the original (if you're in the right part of the world on a compatible network anyway). The accessories include a Razer Wireless Charger, a Leather & a Kevlar Case and a tempered glass screen protector.
