After plenty of anticipation, Razer has finally announced its first smartphone, after purchasing Nextbit earlier this year.
The Razer Phone is a smartphone that is aimed primarily at gamers, and every single aspect of this smartphone demonstrates just that.
The Razer Phone has the ‘world’s first 120Hz display’ on a smartphone, which is going to be great for gaming as it gives the users a much smoother experience. The display itself is a 5.7-inch Sharp IGZO panel with a resolution of 2560×1440.
Razer has also included cinematic audio in the phone, which has Dolby Atmos support. There is a dual-camera setup on the rear of the phone. The company is using dual 12-megapixel cameras.
The standard 12-megapixel camera has a f/1.7 aperture while the zoom lens has a f/2.6 aperture and both lenses do sport phase detection auto focus. Rounding out the camera module on the back, there is also dual tone LED flash for getting some great low-light photos.
Software-wise, the Razer Phone is running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and it will get updated to Android 8.0 Oreo in the future, but no firm date has been set. The Razer Phone will be available on 17 November 2017 in both the US and Europe for US$699.
