Razor launches smartphone with 120Hz display and 4000mAh battery

Posted November 03, 2017

This week gaming company Razer unveiled the Razer Phone, a brand new android-powered smartphone with a strong focus on gamers. On top of that there's a built-in adaptive UltraMotion refresh technology - co-developed with Qualcomm - which synchronises the display with the GPU for maximum smoothness. It has 5.7-inch QHD display with 120Hz with Ultramotion and a wide colour gamut made by Sharp. Razer has worked on it and had made it into an advantage by including dual firing front speakers providing the best audio, not only during gaming but also for music and when watching videos on the large, lovely display.

The first major setback that the phone has or doesn't is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Also included are twin front-facing speakers, 64GB of memory, 8GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, along with dual rear 12MP cameras and a front 8MP one.

Razer Phone makes for an interesting choice in the high-end phone segment given its high-end performance to support gaming while still offering nearly all that one would expect of a flagship phone. This is not to say that the Razer Phone will automatically have poor battery life, but to illustrate that there are some factors in play that could pull a 4,000 mAh battery down to Earth.

"The future of gaming is rapidly expanding to mobile devices, and both Razer and Tencent are at the forefront of fast-tracking development", said Vincent Gao, global marketing director at Tencent Games. Pre-orders for the Razer Phone will begin today and the sales will start on November 17 in the US. For purchase, it will be available on November 17th, 2017.

The phone is equipped with Dolby Atmos audio, DAC and has multiple equalizer settings which can easily be switched through based on whether you are watching a movie, music or playing a game.

In a grand launch event, Razer proudly launched their smartphone which has been truly created to be the ultimate gaming phone anyone could get their hands on. For a device aimed at pro-gamers, the Razer phone appears to have arrived with all the right tools to get the job done.

During an event at the National Science Museum in London, Razer chief executive Tan Min-Liang announced the Razer Phone, which he billed as one built with gamers in mind.

Susan Buttsworth, CEO at Three's worldwide opportunities development division at CK Hutchison, said: "The launch of Razer Phone with Three marks another step in growing our Group strategic partnership with Razer and our position in the wider mobile gaming space".

The Razer Phone will be exclusive to Three in the UK.

Dave Dyson, CEO at Three UK, said: "My ambition is always to innovate in ways that deliver better experiences for our customers and a partnership with Razer is a flawless fit". This area also provides a good place for your thumbs to rest while you're jamming away on whatever game you're going at, as long as it plays in landscape mode.

Mark Gardiner, head of products, services and logistics at Three, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Razer to be the only network in Ireland offering this premium gaming handset". Note that this is for the plain version with a white Razer logo on the back.
