Razer Phone 2 price, release date and where to buy

Share

On the topic of outward appearance, the phone now has a glass back which facilitates wireless charging, and also round the back you will find the Razer Chroma 16.7 million colour lit Razer logo.

The Razer Phone 2 features a 5.72-inch Quad HD IGZO LCD UltraMotion display with 2560×1440 pixels resolution, 580 nits brightness, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The Razer Phone 2 delivers refinements across the board but retains the overall look of the original, with its angular appearance and stereo front facing speakers providing good side grip bezel areas when held in landscape mode. The handset is also both wider and thicker (158.5 x 78.99 x 8.5 mm) than its predecessor (158.5 x 77.7 x 8 mm), so it stands to reason it's heavier as well, though its weight info has yet to be disclosed. There were very few surprises in store for the Pixel 3, which is now Google's most expensive phone ever, starting at $799.

First thing you'll notice about the Razer Phone 2 is the lack of notch in the display.

As expected, the Razer Phone 2 has a Snapdragon 845 backed up by an insane 8GB of RAM.

Razer has also added a vapour chamber thingy for heat dissipation that's essentially a shrunken down version of the tech it uses to cool its Blade 15 laptop. Without going into too many technical details, this is basically the only viable take on the idea of implementing a water cooling setup into a smartphone and should allow the Razer Phone 2 to maintain its peak performance levels for longer than its predecessor did, which should be a major selling point to anyone looking into (semi-) serious mobile gaming. Also on the back, we have two 12-megapixel cameras, including a telephoto lens and a wide-angle lens with optical image stabilization.

The new phone will also continue to have industry-leading features such as its 120hz display.

The phone will be available in two shades of black, including Mirror Black and Satin Black, and it will ship in the fourth quarter in the US, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, with preorders set for October 11th.

When is the Razor Phone 2 coming out?

The San Francisco, California-based manufacturer hasn't outright referenced its price hike but apparently feels convinced the newer chip, RGB lights, and extra software tweaks and additions are worth the price difference.

Cameras have been improved in this second generation device.
