Now that consumers have more choices in the form of Asus ROG and Xiaomi Black Shark, Razer is stepping up its game with brand new Razer Phone 2. Simply named as the Razer Phone 2, the new device continues to have the same gaming-oriented optimizations that the first-generation device came to be known for though things are only expected to be a notch higher on the new Razer 2 Phone. This also doubles as a notification light and thus the notification colours for various applications can be configured separately using an application. The handset is IP67 rated for water resistance and has a fingerprint sensor on the side.
The highlight of Razer Phone 2 is the 5.72-inch IGZO LCD with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, wide color gamut, UltraMotion technology and Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The Razer Phone 2 will feature an improved battery, faster processor, better camera, improved audio experience and a promise that numerous most popular games in the word have been optimised for use with the phone.
The phone has a dual camera on the back with 12 megapixels f/1.75 wide-angle lens and 12MP f/2.6 aperture telephoto lens.
However the gaming manufacturer is certainly more concerned with performance over futuristic looks with the Phone 2. It runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) which is said to be upgradable to Android 9.0 (Pie). The Razer Raiju Mobile will be available for $149 in Q4 this year and the Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC will be available for $99 from October 22, 2018.
The battery capacity of 4000 mAh now supports fast charging QuickCharge 4.0+. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack, but Razer bundles a 24-bit DAC dongle with the phone.
A single front-facing camera is present on the product that is 8-megapixels. It comes in a Satin finish and will be made available at a later date. What do a great deal of these phones have in common that make them suited to gaming? After creating the category of gaming phones with the first Razer Phone in 2017, Razer has further pushed the boundaries of mobile devices to power the world of mobile esports and entertainment. The company claims that the phone can offer almost 10 hours of on-screen time at the display refresh rate of 120Hz. Predictably, Razer sells a separate wireless-charging dock with the company's iconic Chroma lighting effects for your bedside. In addition to the original phone, the company also unveiled a laptop shell codenamed Project Linda back at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.
The phone is coming soon and will release for $799.
The speakers on the device mean the Razer Phone 2 does not deliver an all-screen design similar to the iPhone Xs or its other Android rivals. For a fee, you can purchase various accessories for your smartphone, for example, a wireless charger for $100, a leather case for $40 and protection for a display for $20.

The photograph is one of a long line of unintentionally freaky images taken for Google Maps and Google Street View. Poor guy was probably lost and looking up where to go, and then he found out he'd lost his wife to another man.

HMD has proven itself to be a reliable option when it comes to seeding software updates, so no questions in that aspect. The user experience is pretty much stock and except for the Nokia Camera app, there's no customisation whatsoever.
