Razer Phone 2 officially announced along with a mobile gamepad

Finally, the handset was listed with a 5.72-inch LCD display sporting a QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh variable rate.

Razer today officially unveiled the Razer Phone 2, its second generation flagship gaming smartphone.

The same Snapdragon 845 that powers the Pixel 3 is found inside the Razer Phone 2, but it bundled with twice the memory - the phone has 8GB of RAM compared to 4GB for the Pixel. We are glad that Razer is calling its piping this, and not a "liquid cooling system" as most other brands do. Apart from these, there are Stereo front-facing speakers with Dual amplifiers and Dolby Atmos, 24-bit DAC Audio Adapter.

Razer proved it was serious about phones with its first, and the company is keeping the concept sharp with the Razer Phone 2. How much for this wide-eyed gamer's puppy?

Though it is broadly the same in appearance, Razer has smoothed out and rounded the edges subtly and the new device is said to be more comfortable in the hand. But Razer has improved the brightness of the display by 50 percent. It uses a dual-lens system with a wide 12MP f/1.75 lens and a 12MP f/2.6 telephoto lens, plus a dual LED flash. The Razer Phone 2 is being touted as a gaming phone, and it has some specs to reflect that. On the front you'll find an 8MP shooter.

Hurricane Michael gains strength, takes aim at north Florida
As it came ashore, Michael was just shy of a Category 5 - defined as a storm packing wind speeds of 157 miles per hour or above. The area is known for its small beach towns, wildlife reserves and the state capital, Tallahassee.

Measuring at 158.5x78.99x8.5mm, the design is similar to what we saw in the first Razer Phone previous year.

The smartphone has 4,000mAh battery supporting QuickCharge 4.0+ and fast Qi wireless charging. Another improvement comes in the form of the handset's body that's now IP67-certified for resistance to dust particles and water, whereas the first Razer Phone had no official IP rating.

The biggest letdown is arguably that the Razer Phone 2 is launching with Android 8.1 (with Nova Launcher) rather than Android Pie, though Razer says it is working on an update to Pie that will come later.

The phone will be available in two shades of black, including Mirror Black and Satin Black, and it will ship in the fourth quarter in the US, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, with preorders set for October 11th. The San Francisco, California-based manufacturer hasn't outright referenced its price hike but apparently feels convinced the newer chip, RGB lights, and extra software tweaks and additions are worth the price difference.
