There has been word in the rumour windmill in the past hinting that Razer was silently working on its first smartphone and had plans to unveil it in the month of November. The phone is largely touted to come with jacked up hardware, which will surely please the hardcore gamers. Now, the alleged Razer Phone has finally come to light through some of its leaked specs.
The Razer Phone was spotted online on a UK-based e-commerce website along with its spec listing. However, the image claimed to be the Razer Phone might not be legitimate since it looks more like a photoshopped version of the smartphone Nexbit Robin. Meanwhile, others speculate this could suggest that the upcoming Razer Phone would sport Robin-like design elements.
As for the specs, the website shows that the Razer Phone will come with a 5.72-inch IGZO display in a similar fashion to its gaming laptops which are known to sport IGZO displays to provide improved video response, higher resolution, and lower battery consumption. Seems like the company is trying to duplicate their laptops’ highlight feature onto its smartphone as well.
Furthermore, the spec list boasts of a 120Hz refresh rate and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) which is rarely seen in smartphone displays. Essentially, a 120Hz refresh rate means you’ll see super smooth animation and movements on the screen, which again makes it a likely feature for a gaming-focused phone. Going by the listing, the Razer Phone will pack a whopping 8GB of RAM. Additional specs include front-facing speakers with Dolby ATMOS sound to provide an immersive experience.
The Razer Phone is also expected to come with a dual rear camera setup including one 12MP sensor with f/1.75 aperture and a second 13MP sensor with f/2.6 aperture along with autofocus. According to the website, the device will likely support 4G and will pack a 4,000mAh battery.
Earlier this month, a GeekBench listing suggested that the Razer Phone might possibly sport a Snapdragon 835 SoC with Adreno 540 GPU. The handset is also expected to offer 64GB of internal storage along with the aforementioned 8GB of RAM. Razer is expected to launch the smartphone on November 1.
