The Razer Phone was spotted on a UK-based e-commerce site 3G alongside some specifications. Now, the image shown on the site is unlikely the Razer Phone as it looks like a photoshopped version of the Nextbit Robin. However, the image could be meant as an approximation as the Razer Phone may have some Robin-like design elements since Razer acquired the startup earlier this year.
Moving on to the specs, the website shows the Razer Phone will sport a 5.72-inch IGZO display. Razer has been known to use IGZO displays for its gaming laptops like the Razer Blade as they are known to improve video response, provide higher resolution and lowers battery consumption, so the Razer Phone getting an IGZO display makes perfect sense. The spec further highlights 120Hz refresh rate and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG), something that is rarely seen for a smartphone display as most flagships today are locked to 60Hz refresh rate. Notably Sharp has incorporated 120Hz refresh rate in its Aquos series while Apple brought 120Hz to its iPad Pro tablet.
Essentially, 120Hz refresh rate means you’ll see super smooth animation and movements on the screen, which again makes it a likely specification for the gaming-focussed Razer Phone. Of course, to back serious gaming performance the phone will need to go big on RAM, and if the listing is true then the Razer Phone could see a whopping 8GB of RAM. Additional specs mentioned include dual front-facing speakers with Dolby ATMOS sound that should provide adequate immersive experience. The phone could also sport a dual rear camera setup comprising one 12-megapixel sensor with f/1.75 wide angle and one 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.6 zoom along with autofocus. The smartphone is expected to support 4G and will pack a 4000mAh battery, as per the website.
A few of the specs mentioned here are in line with past rumours. A GFXBench listing earlier this month revealed the Razer Phone will sport a Snapdragon 835 SoC with Adreno 540 GPU. The smartphone could also be offered with 64GB of internal storage. Razer is expected to unveil the gaming-focussed smartphone on November 1.
