Razer Unveils The Ultra Powerful Razer Phone

Razer Unveils The Ultra Powerful Razer Phone

The result is an imposing 8mm-thick monolithic slab of a smartphone that looks unusual in a world where every other smartphone has adopted a curved, svelte design.

Razer's first phone also has a lot of features that everyday phone owners will enjoy.

"The screen is a 5.7" QHD IGZO LCD with wide color gamut and 120Hz refresh rate, twice as much as you normally get from the best non-Apple mobile devices. That's the same refresh rate as a 10.5-inch iPad Pro and translates to an ultra smooth feel when you're scrolling through Twitter or web pages. As if that wasn't enough, Razer has also included a 24-bit DAC, which does not mean that there is a headphone jack, because there isn't one here.

Dual 12 megapixel cameras on the rear with different levels of optical zoom - one wide angle, one telephoto. Battery life isn't affected.

Razer brings us the Nextbit Robin's supercharged, supersized gamer-focused successor. Since The Verge has already took the video down, guess you just have to wait to see the new phone in full glory once officially revealed by Razer tomorrow morning. You may know Razer from its PCs and console gaming peripherals like awesome laptops, headsets, and controllers. In fact, I had all but written the phone off throughout my briefing, thinking "yeah this is great, but it probably costs more than $1,000". For example, because most gaming on smartphones is done by holding the phone in landscape orientation, the power button and volume buttons are centered on the phone. Razer claims it's the loudest handset ever. 64GB of internal storage comes with the phone, but you can use external storage through a microSD card up to 2TB. "We're not getting into the phone business; the phone business is coming to us".

Like Samsung's Game Launcher feature, Razer's Phone can silence incoming notifications and allow you to tweak the hardware priorities when gaming. It would be interesting to see a smartphone made for gamers in mind.

Adding to the immersiveness could be the presence of dual front-facing speakers with Dolby ATMOS sound, which is great as your hand won't be blocking the speakers when you hold it horizontally. Razer's also shipping the phone with QuickCharge 4+ for extra-quick refills - the first product to be announced with the latest Qualcomm charging standard.

Razer has a dedicated following in the gaming space, and a solid first effort in the form of the Razer phone.

The Razer Phone will be available on November 17 in North America and Europe.

At that sort of price, the Razer Phone needs to keep up with the Joneses in all areas. 1,337 special edition units will be available, which feature the green Razer logo.

I don't think the Razer Phone poses any threat to 2017's host of excellent flagships, but it looks like being one of 2017's most surprising smartphones. But Razer says it's working with major developers to uncap frame rates and let their phone run in all its 120Hz glory.

Other titles taking advantage of the 120Hz screen include Tekken 7 mobile from Bandai-Namco, Square Enix' Final Fantasy XV Pocket and many more.

I spent a few minutes with the Razer phone at a pre-briefing last month and found the surprisingly sleek and light.
