Description

The Razer Phone 2 has a good old 16:9 display, 120 Hz IGZO LCD panel, with no notch. What is modernized is the metal back panel, which has been replaced with a one made of glass. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 845 SOC with 8 GB RAM and 64 gigs of storage. Android 8.1 Oreo is available right out of the box. There is a dual camera combo on the back - one wide angle and one telephoto, both with Phase detection AF. A 4000 mAh battery is keeping the lights running.
