Razer surprised everyone when it announced the launch of a gaming smartphone last year. The Razer Phone was launched, and it was praised a lot due to all the features it had for the gamers like a 120Hz display, stereo speakers and a powerful Snapdragon 835 processor. This year, it is almost confirmed that the company will be launching the successor to the Razer Phone and today, the Razer Phone 2 visited the AnTuTu benchmark that revealed its major specifications like the display, chipset, RAM and the storage.
So, the Razer Phone 2 has a Quad-HD display (Not Quad-HD+) with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. This means we are not getting an 18:9 or 19:9 display on the Razer Phone 2. It is the old 16:9 display, but this means that the stereo speakers are here to stay. We are expecting to see even better stereo speakers than those on the first generation Razer Phone. Talking about other specifications, there is up to 8GB RAM and 512GB storage. This, combined with the Snapdragon 845 and the Adreno 630 GPU, means the performance is going to be top notch.
It is not yet confirmed if we are getting the same 120Hz display with this device, but if Razer keeps it, this would be great. The phone scored 283K+ on AnTuTu which is similar to the scores by phones like OnePlus 6 and the Galaxy Note 9. It is still slightly less than what the Xiaomi’s Blackshark scores (292K).
As per Roland Quandt, the Razer Phone 2 is coming with Razer Chroma. This means we will see LEDs being used on the Razer phone 2, with an option for the users to tweak them as per their personal preferences.
The launch month is not yet known so stay tuned for that.
