Razer Phone's full list of leaked specs confirms dual-camera setup, 8GB RAM, IGZO display


We're just one day away from the official reveal of the Razer Phone, a device aimed at “hardcore gamers.” The smartphone is expected to be officially unveiled on November 1 and judging by what's been leaked until now, it will be a beast.

A listing found at graphics benchmark developer GFXBench two weeks ago revealed some of the handset's hardware such as a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 8GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

We now have another source that confirms some of the specs that we're reported about earlier this month. An independent mobile phone blog, an affiliate to major carrier Three UK, has already listed the Razer Phone on its website.

According to the listing, the Razer Phone will indeed pack 8GB RAM – enough for the most demanding games and apps – and a massive 4,000 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ technology.

The 5.72-inch IGZO display has a 120Hz refresh rate and Wide Color Gamut (WCG), while the dual-camera setup on the back comprises of 12MP and 13MP cameras. Since this is supposed to be a gaming smartphone, it comes with Dolby ATMOS sound, dual front-facing speakers and amplifiers certified by THX.

There's no mention of price since the product appears “out of stock,” but it's hard to believe it will cost less than $600. We'll be providing you first-hand info on Razer's upcoming smartphone on the day of its reveal, so stay tuned for more on this one.

They should've made the screen at least 6in.

Why???

13. fyah_king unregistered

Because it's much better for gaming with a 6in+ screen.

Definitely. When it comes to gaming and multimedia, the bigger the better!

Nah, 5.7in is the sweet spot for an 18:9 aspect display anything larger becomes to tall. This is of course amusing it's 18:9.

Agreed. There’s a balance to strike now

I'm still waiting on a high-end 5.5in 18:9 phone, I don't think it's going to happen though, everyone seems to be stuck on 5.7-6.3in displays when it comes to 18:9, I have large enough hands to use those sizes easy enough but I don't prefer them.

It's certainly does not sound bad on paper. It looks like a Sony / Robin hybrid design wise. It's Razer i know, they often make products with questionable quality, but still they might pull of something interesting.

It should hopefully not be a next nextbit robin or the essential phone.

Its main focus will be games.

Yay, with 4,000mAh and QuickCharge 4+... Gaming all day long!

Good luck with that on Android ... or iOS for that matter. To be honest i can't think of more than 10 solid games for mobile platform, that are actualy worth a while.

Okay? To each his own.

I mean if you look at something like nVidia Shield, they at least tried to bring some games, that are not some Flappy Bird, microtransaction, mindless garbage. But what are some interesting games on android? Limbo, Grim Fandango, Tell Tale games, Pinball games by Zen, Banner Saga, Hearthstone, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Scribblenauts, Plants vs Zombies, Alto, Terraria, Minecraft etc. but that still just a few in a sea of match three games, "free to play strategy" games and other tosh. It still can be a good phone, but gaming phone on android? I don't think so.

If they keep the bezels at a minimum, this could be a pretty enticing device.

It sounds more like 800 to me. Unfortunately it is another Essential in the making...

120Hz refresh rate, I love this !!!!

32. WingMan unregistered

cool for bragging rights, but why? Is there even anything that works with that frame rate on android?

They've waited this long... why not use the Snapdragon 845? This will be yesterday's news before it's released..

That makes absolutely no sense. Even the newest Pixels, which always have the latest Snapdragon processors, don't have the 845. The design, RAM, battery capacity and battery life, display technology, quick charging (if true, it's the 1st one that has Quick Charge 4.0), and its focusing on gaming, will set it a part.

845 is available in Dec so if Razer would wait a month and a half to release the phone then it won't be outdated as soon as it's unveiled... https://www.phonearena.com/news/Snapdragon-845-pegged-to-debut-in-early-December-new-rumored-specs-pop-up_id99366

Yes, you're right, if they release it in December, but it's not out now. So the comment about it being "outdated," makes absolutely no sense. Even if it releases in December with the 845, doesn't make the 835 outdated. Using the 821 would make it outdated. A heavy load of 835 devices just released around July. And of course the Pixel, Google the owner of Android, just came out with the 835. So it couldn't be outdated.

120Hz will be useless since most games capped at 30 fps, only few of them capped at 60fps, never know if there's a popular mobile game that can reach 120fps

Ridiculous. Can anyone take smartphone gaming seriously?? I mean in a tiny screen without proper controls....LOL

18. mikehunta727 unregistered

120 hz screen woah.. now that makes it truly stand out from other 835 devices for gaming At first I thought it was just gonna be really another 835 device with 8GB of RAM but this is looking really interesting

What will be interesting about this phone is seeing if they rely on the built in graphics of the SD 835 or give the device its own dedicated graphics.

23. mikehunta727 unregistered

There is no dedicated graphics it's using S835. It might have a variable refresh rate, which would be stellar

Can't wait! I feel like these last 2 years have truly been what Nextbit states in the smartphone industry, a state of "sameness." I really want something different. Key features for me in a smartphone comes down to: camera quality, battery life/mAh capacity (quick charging helps too), and audio (recording and playback). This seems to check all of those areas.
