The New Razer Phone Is Especially Designed for Gamers

The super-fast refresh rates of the display help in rendering smooth movements and animations in games. UltraMotion's adaptive refresh technology synchronizes the GPU and display to remove image tearing or lag while driving efficient power usage. This first mobile phone from Razer features a 5.72-inch Quad HD IGZO LCD, front-firing speakers, and it's running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform with 8GB of RAM. The device will also have Atmos support and a USB-C audio jack certified by THX and powered by a 24-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC).

The stock software launcher for this phone is Nova Launcher Prime and is now launching with Android 7.1, although an update to Android Oreo is expected for the first quarter of 2018. That refresh rate is double what you'll find on pretty much all the competition in the mobile space (apart from the iPad Pro) and should make for a pretty awesome gaming experience.

Elsewhere the Razer Phone packs a large 4000mAh battery, Qualcomm 4+ Quick Charge, 64GB of internal storage (expandable), and an 8MP front-facing camera, and dual-camera system with a 12MP wide angle lens and a 13MP telephoto lens.

All of this hints at the essential problem with the Razer Phone-it's built by a company with no previous experience in smartphone design in a market inundated with choice. Mr Tan admitted he plays "a ton of games", on smartphones and that they are his go-to device for streaming content. Interested users can head to Three stores in the United Kingdom and European Union as well as Microsoft Stores in the U.S. and the company's own stores in San Francisco on November 17 to get their devices.

As the device is marketed for Gaming purposes, there wasn't much expectation in the camera department, however, the phone seems to have taken care of it anyway. Most people already have the phone they want, and I'm curious to see how many will be wooed by nothing more than an (really nice) 120Hz display and the promise of Android gaming.

Prices for the Razer Phone start at €99 on Three's Unlimited Flex Max plan. This will be a truly incredible opportunity for the Razer fans, gamers all over the world and those passionate about the gaming community to become owners and shareholders of Razer, and to join us on our mission - For Gamers.
