The beast has been unleashed
After much discussion and hype, Razer has officially unveiled its first smartphone. Geared towards mobile gamers, the Razer Phone’s standout feature is its 5.7-inch Quad HD IGZO display that boasts of a 120hz refresh rate—the same refresh rate with most gaming monitors out there—and a UltraMotion tech to avoid screen tearing and lag at high frame rates.
In addition, it is one of the loudest phones out there, sporting two front-firing speakers and a 24-Bit DAC that is certified by THX. Powering the phone is a Snapdragon 835 processor, along with a monstrous 8GB RAM and a 4000mAh battery with Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+.
For its body, the Razer Phone is made from an all-aluminum CNC chassis, giving it sharp edges reminiscent of the NextBit phone—which Razer purchased early this year.
