  • Razer Phone 2 could be 2018’s sleeper hit flagship smartphone

    The gaming phone may be the latest smartphone fad to snuggle up to consumers in 2018. And perpetuating that movement is Razer. Generally known as a gaming peripheral and laptop manufacturer, Razer this week debuted its second edition Razer Phone. Not your typical 2018 flagship (with notch, no headphone jack, and a screen so large it requires a crane to lift), the Razer Phone 2 keeps much of the original device's specs. It still features a 5.72 inch screen that refreshes its 2560x1440 pixels at 120Hz. Rather disappointingly, you'll still only find 64GB storage in the phone, but it does come with...

  • ‘Expect’ a gaming phone from Asus in the future

    Mobile gaming is a giant portion of both Google and Apple's app revenue, but smartphone makers haven't really latched onto the idea of 'gaming phones' at all. Sure, the Razer Phone launched late last year, but it's one of few companies that have stretched the idea beyond marketing and into actual hardware. But it may not be alone in this space for much longer. And according to Asus's global CEO Jerry Shen, consumers can "expect" a gaming phone from the company at some point in the future. And it might arrive with ROG branding too. In an interview with Philippine publication Astig, Shen...

  • Project Linda: a laptop shell for Razer Phone with 120Hz display

    The Razer Phone was one of the more interesting releases of 2017, bringing flagship-level specs and a Nextbit-style design to the smartphone world. But the biggest addition was the 5.7-inch screen, delivering a smooth 120Hz refresh rate that was a first for the smartphone industry. But what if you want to enjoy that experience on a bigger screen? Razer has the answer at CES in the form of Project Linda, a laptop shell concept that packs a 13.3-inch QHD (2560x1440) display that also has a 120Hz refresh rate. The Razer Phone itself acts as a trackpad or second screen, while...

  • Razer Phone official: 120hz display and what else?

    We saw the Razer Phone leak earlier this week, but now it's gone official. And it seems like the leaks were true for the most part. The phone indeed packs a 120Hz IGZO LCD screen (2560x1440), 8GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage and a 4000mAh battery (with Quick Charge 4+ indeed). We also see confirmation of a dual-camera system for the back, in the form of a 12MP f/1.75 standard shooter and a 13MP f/2.6 telephoto snapper. As for other specs and features? Yep, it's indeed packing a Snapdragon 835 processor, a Game Booster tool (presumably Razer's take on Samsung's tool for...

  • Razer Phone ‘leaked’ on UK retailer’s website, packing 120Hz display

    The Razer Phone has been teased by the eponymous company for several weeks now, but it would appear that some of the phone's specs have leaked. Yep, redditors spotted a listing for the phone on online retailer 3G's website (being an affiliate of the Three network), so what should you know? Well, for starters, the retailer claims that the Razer Phone will have a 5.72-inch IGZO LCD display with a very slick 120Hz refresh rate and wide colour gamut. Otherwise, the listing also claims Dolby Atmos sound via dual front-facing speakers and a 4000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+. Meanwhile, in the camera department,...
