Gaming company Razer launches smartphone for 'gamers'

Razer Gaming Smartphone Launched Milestone: The Razer Phone comes with Nova Launcher Prime preinstalled

The Razer Phone will be the first smartphone with a 120 Hz refresh rate display, meaning it can effectively produce 120 frames-per-second; for reference, most phone screens are 60 Hz displays. The main highlight of the display is its 120Hz refresh rate which is similar to what the iPad Pro has. The device is designed in an all-aluminium case with a 5.7 inch Quad HD display. To this end, it has endowed the device with dual Dolby Atmos front-facing speakers.

This is all powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 8GB of RAM, and runs on Android 7.

The Razer Phone will come with one of the most popular custom launchers for Android, Nova Launcher Prime, pre-installed, giving users unprecedented customization options and all the trendy features that arrived with Android 8.0. That refresh rate is double what you'll find on pretty much all the competition in the mobile space (apart from the iPad Pro) and should make for a pretty unbelievable gaming experience. The display of the phone will not affects its battery life as ensured by Razer Company.

If you're really interested in the phone, perhaps you'll want to invest in one of 1,337 sets of the Razer Phone Special Edition, featuring the green logo, available from Three stores in UK, Ireland, Denmark, and Sweden.

While 120Hz displays do exist on phones such as the Sharp Aquos, a vast majority of them are locked at 60Hz screen output, which doesn't offer adequate refresh rates for high-end gaming.

"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.

Connectivity options on the Razer Phone include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, 4G, and 3G. READ NEXT:"Widening gap" between digital transformation winners and losers In a period when many view the smartphone industry as stagnant, Razer's decision to enter the market with a power user's device might seem misguided.

The Razer Phone will be available in the United Kingdom exclusively on Three, which is already supposed to be taking pre-orders, although the company hadn't got round to updating its website at the time of writing.

Flanking the display are two large speakers, each with a dedicated amp. The standard model will be available with a Black logo.

The only thing the Razer Phone is missing, is an array of RGB LED's surrounding the phone. Sure this could wind up being a great phone for your emulators, or that newly announced Final Fantasy XV mobile edition, but Razer is asking a lot of consumers.
