Just yesterday, the Razer Phone 2
made its benchmark debut
with an appearance on Geekbench. This suggested that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 was present and confirmed the inclusion of 8GB of RAM. But thanks to an appearance on benchmarking site AnTuTu, even more Razer Phone 2
details have now been revealed.
While the majority of the smartphone industry has moved towards either 18:9 or 19:9 displays this year, subsequently leaving the 16:9 aspect ratio looking outdated, Razer’s dedication to gaming appears to have stopped it from adopting the taller display trend. In fact, as revealed by the resolution of 2560 x 1440p, the Razer Phone 2 will follow in the footsteps of the original by adopting a 16:9 panel, presumably with powerful stereo speakers above and below.
Checking out the other AnTuTu information, it’s confirmed that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will indeed be powering the device with the help of the Adreno 630 GPU. Additionally, this is set to be coupled with 8GB of RAM, just like the original device, and a whopping 512GB of internal storage. This works out to a huge upgrade over last year’s model which shipped with 64GB of storage. Elsewhere, the device was benchmarked running Android 8.1 Oreo. However, with an announcement not expected until October at the very earliest, this should be updated to the newer Android 9 Pie ahead of launch.
On a final quirky detail, it was revealed earlier today that the Razer Phone 2 may implement Razer’s iconic Chroma LED lightning
system upon launch, acting as a replacement for the more traditional LED light.
