First Razer phone to be a beast with 8 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 835 CPU inside


Gaming powerhouse Razer may have been working on a smartphone for over a year, but, until now, it provided almost no details about the device. Thankfully, the company is seemingly planning to unveil the handset on November 1. This will be Razer's very first smartphone, and it looks like it's going to be packed with high-end features.

According to a listing found at graphics benchmark developer GFXBench, the Razer smartphone sports a 5.7-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, thus it won't have an 18:9 aspect ratio à la Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG V30. 


The upcoming handset should be extremely powerful - thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor (also found inside most current Android flagships) and no less than 8 GB of RAM. 


In case you're wondering, this won't be the world's first phone to offer 8 GB of RAM, as the OnePlus 5 and the Asus ZenFone AR already have that much RAM on board.

 

The Razer phone - which currently has no exact name that we know of - should run Android 7.1.1 Nougat (almost certainly customized by Razer). Apparently, the handset will come with 64 GB of storage space, an 8 MP front-facing camera, and a 12 MP rear one with 4K video recording. A previous report had it that the device would be targeted at hardcore gamers, but it's not clear what this means in terms of features.   

 

Back in January this year, Razer purchased Nextbit, maker of the interesting (and now discontinued) Robin smartphone. While we're pretty sure that the Nextbit team was/is deeply involved in developing Razer's first phone, it remains to be seen if the new device has any Nextbit DNA in it.
