Razer Reveals Its Own Android Gaming Phone; 1337 Special Edition Units Available

Looking purely at its specs, Razer's phone is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market.

The Razer Phone is not flourescent green. Even with the mid-range processors, the Android smartphones can handle majority of the games available on the Play Store.

Aptly called the Razer Phone - not to be confused with the old Motorola RAZR - the Android phone is the first of its kind, a mobile device designed for on-the-go gamers.

Razer is officially entering the smartphone space. It'll begin shipping on November 17th.

When we look at the actual hardware components though, this is where things really start to drift away from the Robin. Also, as a cherry on top, the Razer Phone will also be the world's first phone with support for Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+ technology. It is not on sale at any US carriers at this time.

The Razer Phone has a 5.72-inch display in the format 16:9. In fact, the 3G United Kingdom press release goes as far as to say, "We may even see Razer-branded handsets exclusively on Three, offering all the power needed by gamers". This uses tech that is similar to gSync to allow the display and processors to talk faster and deliver this higher rate. The Razer Phone uses a 5.7-inch IGZO LCD panel, which is plenty bright and pleasant to look at. This paired with Dolby Atmos-powered front speakers made for one of the best mobile media experiences I can think of. Like the new Apple iPhones, the Razer Phone will not have a 3.5mm audio jack, but it will come with a USB-C adapter. For the Razer Phone, there are dual front facing speakers. Apps are quick to load, and even quicker to switch between, thanks to the 8GB of RAM. 64GB of internal storage comes with the phone, but you can use external storage through a microSD card up to 2TB.

The Razer Phone also packs a huge 4,000mAh battery, which should provide enough juice for gamers on-the-go to keep playing through the day. The phone will only be sold for $699 unlocked, with no monthly payment plan. It's got one 12-megapixel camera a wide angle lens and one 13-megapixel camera with a 2x telephoto lens. The secondary module is sitting behind a zoom lens with an f/2.6 aperture, with the two being created to work in conjunction and deliver an optimal performance in a broad range of circumstances. There's a fingerprint reader incorporated into the power button, and the Razer Phone features an all-aluminum CNC chassis. Also, it might not be the sexiest phone on the market, but there's no question that its design makes it ideal for gaming sessions, especially in landscape mode. Arena of Valor, a popular MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) in Asia will make its stateside debut on the Razer Phone.

It runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and comes pre-loaded with the Nova Launcher Prime. In the case of the Razer, this means the phone can optimise itself to run anywhere between 20-120Hz at any given moment. Razer is leveraging contacts in the gaming industry to bring a lot of cool themes. Games like Gear Club and others will be ready to go full blast on this powerful hardware.

Razer, the maker of some of the most coveted gaming accessories and laptops around, likes you so much that it's not content with being plugged into your PC or console.

Razer has lined up a number of recommended games for the launch. While the big, pretty flagships like the iPhone X are too expensive to be worth the minor upgrade, the new Razer Phone, ostensibly "for gamers", could be a surprising step forward, whether you're into games or not.
