Razer wants to revolutionize mobile gaming with its new smartphone
Hardware company Razer has just introduced its first mobile device—the Razer Phone.
The phone was revealed earlier today, and is now available to preorder or reserve on Razer's website.
The phone's screen uses UltraMotion technology to provide zero lag gameplay with refresh rates as high as 120 Hz. The Razer Phone's audio is certified by THX, powered by Dolby ATMOS, and includes dual front facing stereo speakers.
This device also has a 4,000 mAh battery, which is "one of the largest capacities found in any smartphone," according to Razer. In comparison, the iPhone 8 has a 1,821 mAh battery and the iPhone 8 Plus has a 2,675 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S8, on the other hand, features a 3,000 mAh battery, and the Google Pixel 2 has a 2,700 mAh battery.
To make up for this increased battery capacity, however, the Razer Phone is a bit heavier than other smartphone options. The Razer Phone weighs 197 grams, in comparison to the Google Pixel 2, which weighs 142 grams, the iPhone 8, which weighs 148 grams, the Samsung Galaxy S8, which weighs 155 grams. The Razer Phone is slightly lighter than the iPhone 8 Plus, however, which hits the scale at 202 grams.
The Razer Phone is on sale for $699. Prospective buyers can reserve a Razer Phone as of today, and the device will ship starting on Nov. 17.
