Razer Phone With 120Hz UltraMotion Display & Snapdragon 835 Is Priced At $699

Our guess was right, Razer indeed had a smartphone in the making. The aptly titled Razer Phone was launched late last night and it has managed to create a strong impression among early reviewers. The Razer Phone as you might have already known focuses on a good multimedia experience but that does not mean it has skipped on other features like camera and performance. The Razer Phone is undoubtedly a flagship smartphone and could give phones like OnePlus 5, Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 run for their money. The Razer Phone has been priced at $699 in the US which comes to around Rs. 45,127 in India.

The Razer Phone has been built by using the expertise of Nextbit. As you might remember Nextbit, the makers of Robin smartphone were acquired by Razer last year. Razer wanted a piece of the smartphone market and a smartphone was in the making since. Razer has focused on making the Razer Phone as a complete entertainment solution and it has implemented the following features to make it one. The Razer Phone is the first smartphone in the world to have a display with refresh rate of 120Hz. As some of you might know the iPad Pro was the first tablet with a 120Hz display and this is the first smartphone to do that. The Razer Phone has an unusual 5.72inch IGZO LCD display with Quad HD resolution. This is the same kind of display that Razer uses on its gaming monitor range. Display done, it is time to talk about the audio. The Razer Phone has front facing speakers with dedicated amplifiers and is powered by Dolby Atmos. The Razer Phone has a USB Type C port and no headphone jack and that is why in the box you have a THX certified USB C audio adapter. THX is another of Razer’s acquisitions.
