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


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


According to a listing found at graphics benchmark developerGFXBench, the Razer smartphone sports a 5.7-inch display with 1440 x 2560pixels, thus it won't have an 18:9 aspect ratio à la Samsung Galaxy S8 or LGV30. 

The upcoming handset should be extremely powerful - thanks to Qualcomm'sSnapdragon 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 tooffer 8 GB of RAM, as the OnePlus 5 and the Asus ZenFone AR already have that muchRAM on board.


The Razer phone - which currently has no exact name that weknow of - should run Android 7.1.1 Nougat (almost certainly customized byRazer). Apparently, the handset will come with 64 GB of storage space, an 8 MPfront-facing camera, and a 12 MP rear one with 4K video recording. A previousreport had it that the device would be targeted at hardcore gamers, but it'snot clear what this means in terms of features.  


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