Razer Phone 2 with 512GB of storage, 16:9 display pops up on AnTuTu7
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industry has moved towards either 18:9 or 19:9 displays this year, subsequently leaving the 16:9 aspect ratio looking outdated, Razer’s dedication to gaming appears to have stopped it from adopting the taller display trend.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.
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.
