Razer’s second smartphone takes a similar approach to its predecessor. Start out with the fastest processor, best screen technology for gaming, and most potent audio, and then wrap all that up into an Android phone to make power-users giddy. In the case of the Razer Phone 2, that means a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and up to 30-percent more performance than before.
The display supports 120 Hz for both screen refresh and touch sampling, and is now 50-percent brighter than on the old phone. On the back, there’s a new dual camera array, with twin 12-megapixel sensors. One gives you OIS and wide-angle support; the other has a 2x optical zoom.
Razer Chroma color effects, wireless charging, IP67 water resistance, and Dolby Atmos audio round of the key specs. A 4,000 mAh battery, meanwhile, should keep gamers going on their more intense sessions. It’ll go on sale in October, priced from $799 unlocked.
