Razer has come out with a new phone along with accessories to take mobile gaming to the next level.
First up is the new Razer Phone 2, which claims to be the flagship of mobile gaming as it pushes boundaries beyond that of the first Razer Phone released in 2017.
“The first Razer Phone disrupted the smartphone industry and created a new category,” Min-Liang Tan, the co-founder and CEO at Razer Inc., said. “With the Razer Phone 2, we have pulled out the stops to define flagship and gaming on our terms.”
In terms of gaming and performance capabilities, the Razer Phone 2 has up to 30 per cent more performance than the first Razer Phone. This is due to using the the Razer vapor chamber cooling system and the newest components, which include the qualcomm 845 Snapdragon chipset and Qualcomm Adreno 630 graphics processing unit. Whether gamers are playing PUBG, Rival Crimson x Chaos, Marvel Future Fight, Guns of Boom, Runescape, or other mobile games, they can be assured that Razer is working with publishers to ensure optimized gameplay.
The Razer Phone 2 has also amped up its camera game with a new rear dual-camera setup. It uses Sony IMX sensors to help users capture scenes in low lighting, as well as has a 12 MP wide-angle lens and a 12 MMP telephoto lens. On the front of the phone is a 8 MP camera that supports high-definition video streaming.
Other features of the new Razer Phone 2 include wireless charging, a 120 Hz display, improved battery life, the Razer Cortex app, the Razer Theme Store, as well as being powered by Razer Chroma.
The Razer Phone 2 is available for preorders starting at $799 MSRP.
Of course, a shiny, new phone is not complete without equally new accessories. Along with the Razer Phone 2, the Razer Raiju Mobile and Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC have also been launched.
The Razer Raiju Mobile takes mobile gaming to the next level, as it is a gamepad with not only an adjustable phone mount, but also Bluetooth connectivity. There are four remappable multi-function buttons, as well as Razer Mecha-Tactile action buttons.
Meanwhile, the Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC is an in-ear headset that has noise cancellation capabilities without the bulk of a larger headset. Comfort is added to the Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC thanks to its Comply Foam Tips.
“The Razer Raiju Mobile and Hammerhead USB-C ANC further deliver on our vision of providing the ultimate mobile entertainment experience,” Min-Liang Tan said. “You no longer need to be at home to experience movies, music and gaming, in all its glory.”
The Razer Raiju Mobile is $149.99 MSRP, while the Hammerhead USB-C ANC is $99.99 MSRP.
