Razer Phone Release date, Leaks, and Rumors
Razer is about to enter in the Smartphone competition, as the company will announce it first gaming focused phone on November 1. Despite close to the launch, we’re still not sure about the name of the Phone but we’ll stick to “Razer Phone” for the Moment.
Only a few pictures of the design are appeared online showing the back of the phone. The pictures give us the idea of the shape of the phone. I’ve created a render of the phone based on the back image leaked on the internet. The Razer Phone is set to be announced on November 1, as Razer has teased the launch on its website. Here is the teased image on the website.
Razer Phone design and screen
It has a blocky, angular design, very similar to the Nextbit Robin, which is no surprise since Razer has purchased Nextbit.
It’s shown in black here and while it may come in other colors. it’s possible that black will be the only option, as Razer is fond of that color. We can expect a White too as razer have gaming peripherals in Mercury White too.
The rear is plain other than a large white Razer logo. It’s hard to judge the material from images but based on high end specs, we can expect a metal or glass case rather than a plastic one.
Other visible details include a dual-lens camera and two small buttons on the left edge, likely to control the volume.
There are no images of the screen, but a GFXBench listing suggests it will have a 5.7-inch 1,440 x 2,560 one. I’ve created renders of the front of phones based on Nextbit robin design. Phone will probably have dual stereo speakers for better sound quality. We’re expecting a high-resolution display as the teased image focuses on 3 words that are “Watch, Listen and Play”.
That’s a conventional QHD resolution, suggesting the Razer Phone will probably have a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Razer Phone camera and battery
The one benchmark we’ve seen for the Razer Phone lists a 12MP rear camera, though there’s no mention of a dual-lens one, even though the picture we’ve seen seems to have a dual-lens camera.
The benchmark also lists a 4K video camera and a 8MP front-facing camera, though other than HDR and a flash on the rear camera. There’s no word on what capabilities and modes these cameras will have. We can expect to see a reasonably large battery if the Razer Phone is to be positioned at gamers.
Razer Phone OS and power
Benchmarks leaks suggest the Razer Phone will have a Snapdragon 835 chipset and an Adreno 540 graphics chip, which would make it a match for the likes of the LG V30 and the US version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Since the Razer Phone will likely be designed for high-end mobile gaming. So we can expect that Razer Phone will have 7.5GB of RAM which is more than almost any other smartphone – though there is a version of the OnePlus 5 with 8GB.
Razer’s CEO has previously mentioned creating a mobile device “specifically geared toward gamers”.
We can expect the Android Oreo with Custom Razer Skin although benchmarks show Android 7.1.1.
Razer Phone other features
Again, from the benchmarks, we can expect 64GB of storage in the Razer phone. Razer may use the ability to offload files and even apps to the cloud as shown by Nextbit. So that less internal storage is used.
Razer may even take it a step further and allow you to stream games from the cloud. That will allow the Razer Phone to run more demanding games than many handsets. Since much of the horsepower could also be provided by the cloud.
We can expect Razer to add Gaming featured controls in the phone apart from touch screen controls. Or a step further, We can have the capability to pair Razer Gaming peripherals to the Razer phone.
