Razer Phone 2 Price Specifications Listed on Amazon Italy Ahead of Launch

Razer Phone 2 has a display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which means navigating the user interface and scrolling through web pages should be buttery smooth.

The Razer Phone 2 follows in the footsteps of the Razer Phone released back in 2017, seeing the first dedicated gaming phone to be released to the wider market. The new Snapdragon 845 chipset has a new vapor chamber cooling system. We are glad that Razer is calling its piping this, and not a "liquid cooling system" as most other brands do. A hearty 4000 mAh keeps the light on during those long title sessions, and the familiar tri-headed snake logo alone raises the framerate twofold.

Razer's new phone seems like a pretty decent upgrade from last year's Razer Phone. How much for this wide-eyed gamer's puppy?

The connectivity features of the Razer Phone 2 include a 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 5, GPS/ GLONASS, USB Type-C, NFC. The phone has a massive 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 2TB via micro SD card slot. Razer has also increased the brightness of the display by 50% compared to its predecessor.

"When playing games on your phone, switching to the Raiju nearly feels like cheating", said Michael Weitz Razer product marketing manager. Overall this phone measures 158.5 mm x 78.99 mm x 8.5 mm.

Also improved is the camera, which is now a dual camera system with a 12MP optically stabilized wide angle lens and a 12MP 2x telephoto lens. For the front, it has a 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. Razer will initially offer a high-gloss finish on the back glass, along with a matte finish that will accompany the larger internal storage option later this year. The phone is scheduled to be officially unveiled later tonight. It will be coming in Mirror and Satin versions priced at $799 (approx Rs. 59,500) and the Mirror version will be available for order in the US, Canada, UK, and Europe region initially starting today while the Satin version will be available later. The San Francisco, California-based manufacturer hasn't outright referenced its price hike but apparently feels convinced the newer chip, RGB lights, and extra software tweaks and additions are worth the price difference.
