Revamped Razer Phone 2 goes after mobile gamers and movie lovers

Previous year they were the only company on the market catering specifically for gamers, but now with the ROG phone and Honor trying to claim the Play as a gaming phone, competition is heating up, so can Razer see commercial success with their second phone? Though its design remains similar to its predecessor, the Razer Phone 2 brings tons of improvements that make it a worthy flagship phone for hardcore gamers as well as casual ones.

The Razer Phone 2 will be sold in the U.S for $799 and pre-orders have already started, so what are you waiting for? Razer states that the new screen in the Razer Phone 2 is 50 percent brighter, raising the maximum brightness to 580nits.

The new phone will be made available "soon" in select Asia-Pacific markets including Singapore, Razer said.

However, in the meantime, this failure has a number of consequences for the agencies and the crew aboard the space station. Glitches found in Russia's Proton and Soyuz rockets in 2016 were traced to manufacturing flaws at the plant in Voronezh.


As stated by the company, the Razer Phone 2 continues to take the lead with the only true 120 Hz display - now with even better performance for those who love high framerates and silky-smooth action without any lag or stuttering.

The Razer 2 also includes extra GPU power - necessary for any gaming phone worth its salt - through its Qualcomm 845 Snapdragon 845 chipset and Qualcomm Adreno 630 graphics processing unit (GPU).

The Razer Phone 2 is equipped with Dolby Atmos support for its dual front-firing speakers which is equipped with a dedicated amplifier. Incidentally, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack. As for storage, the new Razer Phone 2 comes with 64GB of on-board storage and supports expansion via MicroSD.

Razer is back with the second-generation smartphone aimed at the gaming enthusiasts. The handset comes with Razer Cortex Mobile app which allows users to discover a curated list of popular mobile games and utilize the Game Booster software for launching games and optimization. To keep the 845 running as close to its peak speeds as often as possible, Razer incorporates a vapor-chamber cooling system that appears to stretch over most of the device's rear area.

Razer has designed the Razer Phone 2 with a new glass back to support Wireless charging. The Razer Phone 2 is being touted as a gaming phone, and it has some specs to reflect that. It will also optimize the Razer Phone 2's performance for different games, either with easy presets or manual settings. You can also buy a tempered glass screen protector for $20.
