Entering the smartphone market, Razer made a surprise by presenting Razer Phone in November 2017. Yes! This is the first gaming smartphone that is present in the world and after that not a few smartphone manufacturers are following in the footsteps of Razer.
As if addicted to the success achieved, Razer also has plans to present Razer Phone 2 by the end of this year. At least this remark was made directly from the mouth of Razer Vice President Chen Xiaoping .
Speaking at the 2018 China Joy annual gaming conference held in Shanghai, Chen said that the next generation Razer Phone is expected to come in December 2018 . And hope that China will become the first market that sells Razer Phone 2 .
So, what about the embedded hardware specifications? Although Chen shut up, he confirmed that the second-generation Razer Phone was in the development stage and would come with the latest chipset.
Not a few who suspect, the chipset that will be pinned into the Razer Phone 2 is Snapdragon 855 , although Qualcomm itself has not announced when the top board chipset will be present in the market.
As we all know, Razer introduced its first Razer Phone with the Snapdragon 835 chipset . In addition, the smartphone is also packed with a 5.7-inch QHD IGZO LCD screen and has a 120 Hz refresh rate .
Equipped with 8 GB of RAM , Razer also buried a fairly large battery, which is 4,000 mAh. In addition, the embedded battery is also equipped with the support of Quick Charge 4+ and has been running with the Android Nougat operating system which then in Q1 2018 is Android Oreo.
Sold in the United States market, Razer sells the device at a price of US $ 699 or around Rp10 million . While in the European region, this smartphone is priced at € 699 or around Rp . 11.7 million . There is also a limited edition with a luxurious green Razer logo on the back.
Most likely, Razer Phone 2 will be sold in the same range as the flagship smartphone that currently appears on the market. Or maybe the price isn’t as high as the Samsung Galaxy S9 + , but it’s also not as low as the OnePlus 6 .
