Razer is a popular company in the Gaming industry. But now they entered in smartphone market officially with their new Android smartphone, Razer Phone. Razer acquired Nextbit (a smartphone company) back in January to launch this product.
Razer phone comes in all-aluminum CNC chassis, but strangely buttons (volume rocker + power key) are made out of plastic. It features two front facing stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos sound. The main highlight of Razer phone is its display. Nope, we are not getting an edge to edge display or 18:9 ratio display. But instead Razer phone features 5.7″ QHD IGZO LCD display with 120Hz refresh rate. With 120Hz display, UI animation and gaming will look buttery smooth.
Since Razer Phone is made for mobile gamers, you will get Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 8Gig of RAM (LPDDR4, 1866 MHz). On the storage side, it comes with 64GB UFS ROM which can be further expandable up to 2TB. According to the company, they have used the metal frame of the phone as a heat sink to deal with overheating issues while playing games for longer periods.
For photography, we have Dual 12MP setup on the rear with Dual-tone LED flashlight. On the front there is 8MP wide angle camera with f/2.0 aperture. Razer phone runs on Android v7.1.1 Nougat and comes with Nova Launcher Prime pre-installed. Razer promises for Oreo update by Q1 2018 and will also provide android update for 2 years.
To play games all day long, Razer has offered 4000mAh battery on Razer phone. It also supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+ that will charge 0-85% of battery in just 1 hour. Razer Phone is priced at $699 in the US (£700 in the UK, or €750 in Europe) and will be available from November 17. And sadly, there is very little chance of getting this device here in Nepal officially.
