Razer Phone 2 to be launched on October 10
Razer Phone 2, the successor to the last year's Razer Phone, will be launched on October 10. The official teaser features the silhouette of a phone with words "flagship" and "gaming", hinting at Razer's upcoming 2018 flagship. And while we haven't seen a lot of leaks, Razer Phone 2 is expected to pack top-end specs and retain the design of its predecessor. Here's more.
Razer Phone 2: Design and display
The Razer Phone 2 is expected to retain the design of its predecessor but may have slimmer bezels. However, if Razer decides to shave off the bezels, we may see a slightly bigger display than the 5.72-inch LCD panel on Razer Phone. Further, Razer Phone 2 should get an UltraMotion display with a QHD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate, like its predecessor.
Razer may introduce its PC services to mobile division
Razer had earlier shown interest in extending its PC services to the mobile platform. This means services like Razer Game Store and the zGold wallet and rewards platform may soon come to Razer's mobile. They may debut with the upcoming Razer Phone 2.
What else to expect?
Razer Phone 2, like other 2018 flagships, is likely to get Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, paired with 8GB RAM and possibly upto 256GB of storage. Further, we expect the camera to get some improvement, along with louder stereo speakers. Moreover, Razer Phone featured 4,000mAh battery and supported Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+. Hence, any improvements in this regard would be welcomed.
Pricing and availability
Razer Phone 2 will be unveiled on October 10. And in the build-up to the launch event, we can expect to see more leaks and teasers. Further, reports suggest Razer Phone 2 will be costlier than its predecessor which went on sale for $699.
