Razer Announces Razer Phone 2, Blade 15 Base Model & More

Razer Phone 2

Mobile Accessories include Razer Raiju Mobile and Razer Hammerhead USB-C with Active Noise Cancelling. Razer Blade 15 – Mercury White Limited Edition Model also announced.

Razer, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Razer Phone 2, the very definition of flagship performance and true mobile gaming.

After creating the category of gaming phones with the first Razer Phone in 2017, Razer further pushed the boundaries of mobile devices to power the world of mobile esports and entertainment.

“The first Razer Phone disrupted the smartphone industry and created a new category. With the Razer Phone 2, we have pulled out the stops to define flagship and gaming on our terms.”

said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer Inc.

GAMING // PERFORMANCE

The Razer Phone 2 offers up to 30 percent more performance than its predecessor, thanks to the combination of the latest flagship components and thermal cooling solutions.

The Qualcomm 845 Snapdragon chipset and Qualcomm Adreno 630 graphics processing unit (GPU) will blitz through the most demanding apps, and their performance is further enhanced by the Razer vapour chamber cooling system that provides for industry-leading thermal cooling.

The vapour chamber provides more surface area for heat to dissipate, while sustaining high frame rates for an overall cooler and more powerful experience.

FLAGSHIP // CAMERA

The Razer Phone 2 improves on its imaging capabilities with a new rear dual-camera setup that offers a 12 MP wide-angle lens with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and a 12 MP telephoto lens with 2x zoom. Be it fast action or low-light scenes, the Sony IMX sensors are tuned to produce low-noise images with a wide gamut of colours.

On the front, the 8 MP camera supports video streaming at full HD resolution, a boon for all live-streaming professionals.

FLAGSHIP // ESSENTIALS

The Razer Phone 2 is now powered by Razer Chroma, the world’s most popular RGB lighting system for gamers. The rear of the phone features the Razer triple-headed snake logo that glows in 16.8 million colours to provide app notifications (such as Facebook comments or WhatsApp messages).

Wireless charging is now enabled on the Razer Phone 2 with its new glass back. If you prefer plugging in a USB-C cable, Qualcomm QuickCharge 4+ allows users to charge the phone from a flat battery to 50 percent charge within just 30 minutes.

The Razer Phone 2 has also been tested for IP67 resistance to dust and water.

GAMING // TRUE 120 HZ DISPLAY

One year after Razer launched the world’s first true gaming phone, the Razer Phone 2 continues to take the lead with the only true 120 Hz display.

Unlike other competing phones, the Razer Phone 2’s 5.7-inch UltraMotion™ IGZO display remains the only display in the industry that offers both 120 Hz screen refresh and 120 Hz touch sampling. What you see is what you touch.

GAMING // DUAL FRONT-FACING SPEAKERS

The first Razer Phone made history by being able to churn out audio at record levels without distortion. The Razer Phone 2 is even louder and clearer than before, thanks to upgraded hardware and Dolby Atmos.

The dual front-spacing speakers take up home position on the top and bottom bezels, allowing for both incredible sound projection across any room, as well as an ergonomic form factor for long hours of handheld gaming.

GAMING // BATTERY LIFE

The Razer Phone 2 packs a 4,000 mAH capacity battery for all-day gaming and entertainment needs, and Razer continues to improve battery efficiency.

Where its predecessor was benchmarked for 10 hours of battery life at a screen refresh rate setting of 90 Hz, the Razer Phone 2 is optimised to also last 10 hours at a higher 120 Hz

GAMING // OPTIMISED

As the pioneer in PC esports, and now mobile esports, Razer continues to work with the largest number of game publishers in the industry to bring about the best gaming experiences.

The Razer Phone 2 has been optimized for today’s hottest mobile titles like “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBG Mobile),” “Rival Crimson x Chaos,” “Marvel Future Fight,” “Guns of Boom,” “RuneScape” and more.
