Razer Phone Listed Ahead of Launch – The Perfect Gaming Smartphone?

Razer, the American company popularly known in the gamers’ community has been rumoured to soon manufacture a smartphone. The smartphone has been largely anticipated to be a device focussed on providing a promising gaming experience owing to the company’s reputation. To do so, the phone was rumoured to feature top-notch hardware and software and is expected to be unveiled in November 2017.

Recently, the phone got listed on a UK-based e-commerce website bringing to light its hardware specifications and a flimsy image of the phone. The image spotted has some striking resemblance to the Nextbit Robin and could be a rough representation of what is to come, as Razer did acquire Nextbit earlier this year.

As for its specifications, the phone is expected to feature the flagship chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835, coupled with a whopping 8GB of RAM and the Adreno 540 GPU for enhancing its gaming performance. These specifications are similar to the device’s GFXBench scores unveiled earlier. The phone is also expected to pack in 64GB of Internal memory.

The display department is where the device is touted to shine the brightest with a 120Hz refresh rate display. This is similar to the ProMotion display that the latest iPad Pro features. This would be especially helpful since the device will be primarily be marketed as a gaming device. In addition to that, the smartphone is expected to sport dual front-facing speakers backed by Dolby ATMOS sound that should provide an immersive audio experience.

In the camera department, there are some discrepancies in the information recently leaked and what GFXbench had to show. According to the recent listing, the device may sport a dual camera setup on the back featuring a 12-megapixel sensor with a f/1.75 wide angle aperture and a 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.6 aperture. Contrary to that, the GFXBench scores suggested that the device would feature a single camera setup on the back.

To power up these hefty hardware features, Razer is likely to ship the smartphone with a 4000 mAh battery pack to keep it powered through the day.
