Razer recently announced the Razer Phone 2, the very definition of flagship performance and true mobile gaming. After creating the category of gaming phones with the first Razer Phone in 2017, Razer further pushed the boundaries of devices to power mobile esports and entertainment with this new toy.
Gaming Performance Like No Other
The Razer Phone 2 offers up to 30 percent more performance than its predecessor, thanks to the combination of the latest flagship components and thermal cooling solutions.
The Qualcomm 845 Snapdragon chipset and Qualcomm Adreno 630 graphics processing unit (GPU) will blitz through the most demanding apps, and their performance is further enhanced by the Razer vapor chamber cooling system that provides for industry-leading thermal cooling.
The vapor chamber provides more surface area for heat to dissipate, while still sustaining high frame rates.
The Razer Phone 2 improves on its imaging capabilities with a new rear dual-camera setup that offers a 12 MP wide-angle lens with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a 12 MP telephoto lens with 2x zoom. Be it fast action or low-light scenes, the Sony IMX sensors are tuned to produce low-noise images with a wide gamut of colors.
On the front, the 8 MP camera supports video streaming at full HD resolution, a boon for all live-streaming professionals.
The Razer Phone 2 camera app comes with a new user interface that allows for easy one-handed operation for portraits and scenic panoramas.
The Razer Phone 2 is now powered by Razer Chroma, the popular RGB lighting system that everyone identifies the brand with.
The rear of the phone features the Razer triple-headed snake logo that glows in 16.8 million colors to provide app notifications (such as Facebook comments or WhatsApp messages). Razer Chroma also allows you to customize lighting effects such as Static, Spectrum Cycling and Breathing.
Wireless charging is now enabled on the Razer Phone 2 with its new glass back. Razer has also announced its new wireless charger with Chroma to use with your new phone.
If you prefer plugging in a USB-C cable, Qualcomm QuickCharge 4+ allows you to charge the phone from a flat battery to 50 percent charge within just 30 minutes.
The Razer Phone 2 has also been tested for IP67 resistance to dust and water.
See Everything on a Larger Screen
The Razer Phone 2 is currently the only phone with true 120 Hz display – now with even better performance for those who love high framerates and silky-smooth action without any lag or stuttering.
Unlike other competing phones, the Razer Phone 2’s 5.7-inch UltraMotion IGZO display remains the only display in the industry that offers both 120 Hz screen refresh and 120 Hz touch sampling. What you see is what you touch.
The new display is 50 percent brighter than the one in the first Razer Phone.
Boom! Headshot. Hear it in 3D
The first Razer Phone made history by being able to churn out audio at record levels without distortion. The Razer Phone 2 is even louder and clearer than before, thanks to upgraded hardware and Dolby Atmos.
The dual front-spacing speakers take up home position on the top and bottom bezels, allowing for both incredible sound projection across any room, as well as an ergonomic form factor for long hours of handheld gaming.
Keep Playing with a Long Battery Life
The Razer Phone 2 packs a 4,000 mAH capacity battery for all-day gaming and entertainment needs, and Razer continues to improve battery efficiency.
Where its predecessor was benchmarked for 10 hours of battery life at a screen refresh rate setting of 90 Hz, the Razer Phone 2 is optimized to also last 10 hours at a higher 120 Hz.
The Razer Phone 2 works with LTE Gigabit networks with download speeds up to 1.2 Gbit/s.
Optimised for the Most Popular Titles
Razer worked with game publishers in the industry to bring about the best gaming experiences for the most popular titles. The Razer Phone 2 has been optimized for today’s hottest mobile titles like PUBG, Rival Crimson x Chaos, Marvel Future Fight, Guns of Boom, Runescape, and many more.
The Razer Phone 2 is the only phone officially certified by Netflix for HDR (high dynamic range) video content and Dolby Surround 5.1 audio content.
Razer introduces Razer Cortex, the app that will help you organize your games on your phone, as well as recommend the latest games optimized for 120 Hz gaming. It will also optimize the Razer Phone 2’s performance for different games, either with easy presets or manual settings.
Razer Cortex is now available on Google Play Store, and will work with a variety of phones.
