Razer Phone 2 Announced, Feels A Bit Like Razer Phone 1.5

Razer Phone 2 officially announced along with a mobile gamepad

Apart from these, there are Stereo front-facing speakers with Dual amplifiers and Dolby Atmos, 24-bit DAC Audio Adapter.

For the optics, the Razer Phone 2 has a dual rear camera setup of 12-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.75 wide-angle lens, optical image optimisation (OIS), Dual PDAF and 12-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.6 aperture telephoto lens, Sony IMX Sensors, dual-tone LED flash. Razer is also introducing wireless charging.

The screen appears to be the same as the first Razer Phone, measuring 5.7 inches and boasting refresh rates of 120Hz, while the phone itself will now be IP67 water resistant. The battery capacity remained unchanged across two product generations, as did the handset's support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0 which can replenish half of the said cell in 30 minutes, but the inclusion of a more efficient chip should see the Razer Phone 2 last slightly longer on a single charge than the 2017 phablet did. Overall this phone measures 158.5 mm x 78.99 mm x 8.5 mm. The Razer Phone 2 tries to correct a lot of them while retaining all the things that made the original a gaming enthusiast's delight.

This time you do get rear Razer snake logo that can be illuminated in different colours and waterproofing has also been added into the mix.


Powering the Razer Phone 2 is the Snapdragon 845, coupled with 8GB of RAM. The site also notes that the display is 50% brighter than before, at 580 nits peak brightness, and it apparently offers wide color support with 98.4% coverage of the DCI P3 gamut, according to Anandtech.

The RRP for the Razer Phone 2 will be $799. While a firm global release date has yet to be attached to the new Android gaming handset, the Razer Phone 2 should start shipping to customers no later than early November. Razer pre-installs its mildly tweaked version of Android 8.1, and a good track record of updates for the original Razer Phone should reassure software-conscious buyers.

Also, it wouldn't be gaming hardware without RGB lighting. Just a few days ago, Google unveiled the Pixel 3 phones, practically confirming every rumor that we heard in the past few months. Something which was lacking on the original Razer Phone, and was perhaps one of the most requested features, should Razer launch a second device.
