Through a recent earnings report, Razer had confirmed that it is working on a successor phone for the Razer Phone that was unveiled in November last year. The Razer Phone 2 has been recently spotted on various benchmarking platforms such as Geekbench and AnTuTu through which its key specs have been revealed. Today, Android Headlines has shared a render of the upcoming Razer Phone 2. The publication has claimed that it has acquired the render from a reliable source.
In the below image, the Razer Phone 2 is placed on the right whereas the original Razer Phone can be seen on the left. The image reveals that the front design of Razer Phone 2 resembles a lot with the original Razer Phone. A close observation reveals that the Razer Phone 2 features slightly thicker side bezels. Also, there the alignment of the selfie camera is also a bit different on the Razer Phone 2.
The Razer Phone 2 render suggests that it is equipped with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio like the predecessor model. Since the new leak reveals only the front appearance of the Razer Phone 2, there is no confirmation on whether the handset will be sporting a different rear design than the original device. Earlier in this week, popular tipster Roland Quandt had claimed that the Razer Phone 2 will be sporting Chrome LED effects that will light up when the device receives notifications.
The Geekbench and AnTuTu benchmarks of Razer Phone 2 have revealed that is equipped with Snapdragon 845. The SoC will be coupled with 8 GB of RAM. The device will come loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo OS. According to the AnTuTu listing of Razer Phone 2, its screen carries support for Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels which indicates that it may feature a 5.7-inch IGZO IPS screen that has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The handset is also expected to arrive with an internal storage of 512 GB.
The Razer Phone 2 may feature a 4,000mAh battery or slightly larger battery. The dual 12-megapixel rear cameras of the original phone were criticized because of it delivered mediocre photography experience. The company had to release multiple updates after the launch of the smartphone to improve its camera performance. Hence, it is very likely that the Razer Phone 2 will be equipped with an enhanced dual camera setup.
The original Razer Phone was unveiled on Nov. 1 and the same date can be seen on its render. The Razer Phone 2 has Oct. 10 date mentioned on its screen which suggests that it could be its launch or release date.
