Razer, a company best known for its PC peripherals and gaming laptops, is set to launch its very first smartphone. However, given how rampant leaks are these days regarding unreleased products, we're getting an early look at what Razer will officially announce tomorrow.
UK retailer 3G spilled the beans by posting a product listing for the smartphone to its website. Once the retailer realized its error, the listing was pulled. However, it was too late, and many were able to grab screenshots pertaining to the Razer Phone's specs.
The phone comes with a 5.72-inch IGZO display with a 120Hz refresh rate (something that we've seen previously with the 2017 iPad Pro models) and Wide Color Gamut support. The smartphone is fully embracing the current trend of featuring dual main cameras, as you'll find 12MP f/1.7 wide angle and 13MP f/2.6 units on the Razer Phone. Other features tipped include a generous 8GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage (there is no word of microSD support) and a massive 4,000 mAh battery.
Previous leaks have suggested that the 5.72-inch display with a resolution of 2560x1440 and that Razer Phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
One other that thing that we should note is that the specs are accompanied by a single, small image of the Razer Phone. It shows a device with sharp angles and very thick display bezels at the top and bottom, bucking the current trend for flagships which have adopted minimal bezels and more "organic" designs.
The Razer Phone is the product of the gaming company's acquisition of Nextbit. Nexbit launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for its Robin smartphone, and Razer obviously saw something in the company that it liked that would help jumpstart its efforts to enter the smartphone market.
Given that we are gamers at heart here at HotHardware, we're eager to see how the Razer Phone will advance mobile gaming, and smartphones in general, when it launches tomorrow.
