Razer’s first ever smartphone is almost a year old. Which is why it’s just ripped for a refresh.
Min Lian Tan, CEO of Razer, did already confirm that they are working on the Razer Phone 2. However, he did say that it’s not coming until December of 2018.
And while that’s still a few months from now, the device has already surfaced in AnTuTu Benchmark, which reveals some of the key specifications that this device will have.
It looks like the Razer Phone 2 will have the usual specs upgrade that most 2018 devices have. As per the listing, the device will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and an Adreno 630 GPU.
That’s a bump from the first Razer Phone, which had a Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540 combo.
What’s more interesting is, the device will have a whopping 512GB of storage. There’s a chance that the upcoming Razer Phone will now come with different storage configurations, to make it flexible and accommodate different price markets.
The 8GB of RAM that it has is really not surprising, while on the OS side, it will run on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo. Hopefully, Razer can get it to run on Android 9 Pie once it hit the store shelves.
It’s also listed that the Razer Phone 2 will have a 2560 x 1440 resolution display. It will most likely inherit the previous model’s IGZO screen panel with an ultra-fast 120Hz refresh rate.
As stated earlier, the new Razer Phone is not due until December 2. So we can still expect tons of leaks and rumors to come up in the next couple of months, or even weeks.
