Razer partners with devs to debut $700 game-focused Android phone

Tonight, at an event in London the gaming manufacturer unveiled its first smartphone - the Razer Phone. On top of that, the 5.7-inch LCD screen renders a QHD 1440p resolution (2560x1440) and uses Ultramotion adaptive frame syncing tech (actively matching refresh rate to real-time framerate) to eliminate screen tearing.

The device is also equipped with a Quad HD display with a wide colour gamut, so everything looks vibrant and sharp. Razer has provided high-end technologies like Dolby ATMOS and THX certified audio, mixing it with 8GB of RAM, 12-megapixel dual cameras, and a 4000mAh battery.

There's also an 8MP camera on the front of the Razer Phone and a 7MP one on the iPhone 8. And no matter how hard you push the Razer Phone, its 4,000 mAh battery and Quick Charge 4+ technology will keep it alive for hours. My games, for instance, are generally retro Japanese RPGs that could run on phones two years old. The Razer Phone releases in North America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark, and Sweden for $700 USD / £700 GBP / €750 Euro.

This panel does stand out in one key way: Razer has delivered a 120Hz Ultramotion display with its new phone. Razer says you'll even be able to overclock the processor. To be honest, at the time, I thought it was a terrible idea. It'll begin shipping on November 17th. I play virtually zero mobile games as it is, but the few minutes of Arena of Valor I tried did look and play better than any other mobile game I'd tried before thanks to that screen. The large speaker grilles on top and bottom of the screen, along with a fingerprint sensor inside the power button are reminiscent of the Nextbit Robin.

The Razer Phone and iPhone 8 aren't entirely aimed at the same audience. Apple was commended for using a 120Hz display on the new iPads and it fits in perfectly with the new Razer Phone. Another interesting tidbit is that the device will haveNova Launcher Prime Razer Edition pre-installed right out of the box.

The one thing Razer's Phone doesn't have, however, is a 3.5mm headphone jack. Despite its immense resources and history in the mobile sector, Microsoft tucked its tail between its legs with Windows Mobile 10 and its Lumia hardware. In the United Kingdom, the wireless carrier Three will be the exclusive launch partner. I'm eager to see what happens at the 30-minute mark. "Razer would likely seek to cater to high-end customers, but faces two big challenges, the need for compelling content that will convince consumer to buy the unproven device, and competing with both Apple and Samsung, which have set their sights on the high-end smartphone market themselves".

The Razer Phone is not flourescent green.

Razer has lined up a number of recommended games for the launch.

Tan says the company wanted to steer clear of bloatware, but believes that its characteristic "game slant" is evident in the design.

"There is still room in the phone space to be innovative, despite how mature it is", said Eric Lin, product marketing manager at Razer, in an interview with GamesBeat. That's why Razer has outfitted the phone with a 4,000 mAH battery.

Razer is into this competition by buying out nextbit which made only smartphone. As this report shows, many more people in China are "mobile only", and game console ownership, especially, is much lower there.
