Razor launches its first Android smartphone for gamers

By : |November 2, 2017 0

Razor, the company is known to design gaming computers will now enter the smartphone market. The new smartphone titled Razor Phone will be the first Android-powered smartphone by the company.

Tom Moss, head of Razer’s mobile business, told The Guardian, “We didn’t start out trying to make a gaming phone, but rather a phone for gamers. Something you wouldn’t be embarrassed about pulling out in public. And it had to have the highest performance both on paper and in real life benchmarks.”

Coming to the specifications of the gaming phone, the device has a 5.7-inch 1440p screen with variable refresh rate and a whopping 8GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which can be expandable via a microSD card. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. For photography, the Razer Phone sports a dual 12-megapixel camera on the back. Up front, is an 8-megapixel single camera.

It uses a near-stock version of Android Nougat, with an update to the latest version of Android 8 Oreo promised early next year. It also includes stereo front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos support and a generous 4,000mAh battery.

The smartphone probably has everything except the 3.5mm headphone jack which has started to lose its existence among premium smartphones. To compensate for the lack of a headphone jack, the company has provided a THX-certified 24-bit DAC audio adapter that they claim to deliver “audiophile quality” sound through the headphones.

Razor Phone comes with a price tag of $700. It’s up for pre-order from November 1 with shipping available on November 17. You can register yourself on their website or visit Amazon.com. Razor Phone will also be available at outlets in UK, Ireland, Denmark, and Sweden, and selected Microsoft Stores in the US.
