Here's what you need to know about it!
Back in January Razer spent cold, hard cash to acquire smartphone makers Nextbit, and this phone benefits from that expertise combined with those of the team behind those sleek Razer Blade laptops. The phone will also only be available through a GSM network, like AT&T or T-Mobile.
The Razer Phone is a phone for gamers, not a gaming phone.
Razer placed a major focus on the display of its new smartphone. Refreshingly, it's not even that expensive. I also played a few minutes of Riptide GP2, and while the intro video seemed to stutter a bit, the game itself was as smooth as I could have hoped for.
Razer's marketing images range from the dark and broody... Most phones have a locked refresh rate that's capped at 60Hz (60 frames per second). In addition, the display dynamically adjusts the frame rate, synchonized to the GPU, which means you have very low frame rates for static content and high rates during movement.
Five quick hits on Razer's first ever phone for gamers.
Named simply the Razer phone, the device uses something that the company is calling an Ultramotion Display, which is a 5.72-inch IGZO LCA screen that runs at 120 Hz and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
The phone, revealed via today's Razer livestream event, will feature some pretty impressive specs, such as 8GB DDR4 RAM, a 5.72-inch 120Hz Ultramotion display, aluminum body, and 4000 mAh battery.
However, the iPhone 8 also has large bezels above and below the display, with the bottom bezel used to house a fingerprint scanner (which you'll find on the right edge of the Razer Phone), and neither phone has a 3.5mm headphone port. "We solved for a better cinematic audio experience with Dolby ATMOS technology and two front-firing speakers with dedicated amplifiers, and THX-certified adapter that guarantees audiophile-quality sound with headphones". Razer plans to continue to work with developers in the future as well. To ensure running apps remains smooth, the Razer phone also packs 8GB of memory and 64GB of storage. Razer says its handset outperforms even the Samsung S8+ in common benchmarks. The Razer Phone supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+, which can get that 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 85 percent in 1 hour. One is an f/1.7 wide-angle unit; the other is an f/2.6 2x telephoto zoom effort. Both cameras boast Phase Detection Autofocus.
As for operating systems, the Razer Phone runs Android Nougat, with an update to Android Oreo promised. There will be a Razer Theme Store that delivers gaming themes for the phone with themes that change your icons and system style to match popular games. Games like Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition, Lineage 2: Revolution, Runescape, Tekken and Titanfall: Assault are all being optimized to take advantage of the unique hardware. The Razer Phone will be on sale in the Razer Store in the USA later today. In Europe the phone is exclusive to Three at launch. The Razer Phone releases in North America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark, and Sweden for $700 Dollars / £700 GBP / €750 Euro. Actual shipping date is on November 17. The company's philosophy with the Razer Phone was to make a great device that will excite their core fanbase: Gamers.
Moss said: "We leveraged our engineering experience from laptops creating a heat pipe and two layers of thermal shielding, turning the structure of the phone into a heat sync, so you can use your phone in high performance mode for a lot longer and avoid throttling". Tell us your thoughts down in the comments right away. Are you as excited as we are for the new Razer Phone?
