Razer Phone 2 with 512GB of storage, 16:9 display pops up on AnTuTu

Razer Phone 2 with 512GB of storage, 16:9 display pops up on AnTuTu
Original Razer Phone

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industry has moved towards either 18:9 or 19:9 displays this year, subsequently leaving the 16:9 aspect ratio looking outdated, Razer’s dedication to gaming appears to have stopped it from adopting the taller display trend.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.

Do we know what it scored by chance, anyone? I don't care benchmarks don't mean anything to others, in some cases they're beneficial to buyers looking for performance capability. Nuff said. I'm daft, found the score, my bad.

I hope they unlock it for all carriers. I think the original Razor phone was underrated. I'm not too sure about their update policy, but I hope they do stay on top of updating their devices.

Finally a new phone with a 16:9 screen ratio. I hope the screen is at least 6" dia if not larger. We need to get back to the true tablet format. Manufactures can still make the 18:9 screen ratio for people who want smaller phones.

It's actually great that Razor will stick with the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio which seems ideal for gaming. After some 18:9 I come back to a 16:9 and I've missed it!
