Razer today announced the most expected Razer Phone at an event in London, months after it acquired Nexbit. The phone packs a 5.72-inch Quad HD 120 Hz UltraMotion display delivering fastest refresh rates and smooth graphics suitable for gaming. UltraMotion’s adaptive refresh technology synchronizes the GPU and display to remove image tearing or lag while driving efficient power usage, says Razer.
It is powered by Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform with 8GB of RAM and runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat), which will be upgraded to Android Oreo in spring 2018. It has dual rear cameras, one with 12-megapixel wide-angle (f/1.75 aperture) lens and the other with 13-megapixel telephoto lens (f/2.6 aperture) for 2x zoom.
The company has partnered with Tencent, Square Enix and others to bring top games that take full advantage of the phone, optimized for its 120fps screen.
It has stereo front-facing speakers and Dolby Atmos. It doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack, but comes with THX-certified USB-C audio adapter with a 24-bit DAC. It has a 8mm slim aluminum body and packs a 4000mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+.
