Razer launches smartphone built for gamers

Razer is normally known for their line of gaming products and laptops, but this week, they hopped into the smartphone field with a notable android version, dubbed the Razer Phone.

Razer Inc, a Singapore-based American company that specialises in computer hardware specifically for gamers has made its entry into the world of smartphones.

Guts-wise the Razer Phone is on par with what you'd expect from a high-end Android device. Because this phone has a insane 120Hz refresh rate and needs to play back games at 120 frames per second.

In their official announcement, Razer described the Razer Phone as "the ultimate in mobile entertainment". "We spent an insane amount of money", said Mr Tan. You may recall that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro also features 120Hz refresh rate.

Pre-orders are now available for the Razer Phone, which costs $700 / €750 / £700. Razer had acquired Nextbit earlier this year, revealing plans to foray into the mobile phone segment.

The bezel above and below the display on this smartphone is there for a good reason.

But if you don't want to eat through that big phone battery by playing games at insane speeds, Razer has brought over another big feature from PC gaming: Choice. It runs on Android 7.1.1 out-of-the-box and assures Android Oreo updates in the future.

The Razer Phone has its own unique settings that allow users to choose their max framerate.

Razer revealed its first ever smartphone at an event in London yesterday evening and while it's quite nice to see a new player entering the flagship smartphone market we wonder if Razer really needed to enter it. But that highlights another oddity-technologies like G-Sync and FreeSync don't typically engage above a certain refresh rate because the advantages of both shrink the higher the native frame rate.

Aping the Nextbit Robin design also means there's a big bezel on the top and bottom of the phone with front-firing Dolby Atmos speakers built in. Razer wanted to build a phone intended for gamers first, and a riff on the Robin, which we called "an fantastic 1.o device", was the best path forward.

South Africans may have a hard time getting their hands on a Razer Phone. The phone will be offered with 64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 2TB via microSD card.
