Razer Phone 2 With Snapdragon 845 Unveiled

Razer Phone 2 With Snapdragon 845 Unveiled

Razer launched Razer 2 just yesterday.

As a pioneer in PC eSports and mobile eSports, Razer has continued to work with game publishers, optimising the Razer Phone 2's display for games such as PUBG Mobile, RuneScape, Marvel Future Fight, and more.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the phone comes with a custom vapor chamber cooling system.

Razer have also boasted about the new flagship's "cooling system" that should allow the Phone 2 to run without a hiccup even when under heavy loads.

That might not sound like much of a change, but the camera's slightly-wider aperture allows much more light in than before, capturing images with greater detail in low-light conditions.

That front camera is an 8MP f/2.0 lens, capable of recording at 1080p60 which was apparently a user requested a feature for streaming. Razer further revealed that it is committed to constantly provide software updates to take advantage of the latest improvements in the imaging space. So now Razer has added it and illuminates the triple-snake logo at the back. The logo glows when you have notifications from apps like Facebook and WhatsApp.

Idlib: Opposition ‘completes’ removal of heavy weapons
"Until now, heavy weapons have been removed from northern Hama and eastern Idlib " located in the proposed zone, he said. Government forces are stationed just five kilometers away in the town of Al-Hader, but the front is calm.


Thanks to that glass rear the Razer Phone 2 is also Qi wireless charging compatible, although you'll need to buy a charging mat separately (or the light-up Razer dock). Razer has announced its new wireless charger with Chroma - the world's largest RGB lighting ecosystem. It also supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 4+ so that you can charge the phone from 0 percent to 50 percent within just 30 minutes.

The Razer Phone 2 is IP67 certified device which protected when submerged up to 1 meter of water.

The Razer Phone 2 flaunts a 5.7-inch IGZO LCD display with Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and the company says, "it's still the only smartphone with a true 120Hz screen, and that includes both touch sampling and display refresh rate".

The first Razer Phone made history by being able to churn out audio at record levels without distortion. Further enhancing the feel is the dual front firing Dolby Atmos compatible stereo speakers as well.

The gaming smartphone packed with the same Non-removable Li-Po 4,000 mAh capacity battery inside the body like its predecessor.

The Raiju Mobile controller is a mobile gamepad with a phone mount and Bluetooth connectivity that brings a full-fledged console gamepad to mobile gaming. Razer is also touting the presence of dual cameras with image stabilisation on the Razer Phone 2. The app is also available for other phones, on Google Play. In the camera department, Razer Phone 2 has dual 12-megapixel cameras with OIS and 4K video recording support. And this is another reason selling an Android phone as the ideal gaming machine is a challenge; that chip is significantly outperformed by Apple's A11 and A12 in last year's and this year's iPhones.
