Gaming firm Razer unveils powerful smartphone loaded with premium features

Razer Announces First Smartphone with 120 Hz Display

Razer the company which bears the slogan, "For Gamers, by Gamers" has ventured out to launch their first smartphone.

This high refresh rate is a technology Razer uses in its gaming laptops, and is now making its way into a mobile device.

The Razer Phone features UltraMotion adaptive refresh technology, which synchronizes the display and GPU to remove any lags or motion distortion.

There's also stereo front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos, dual rear cameras and a massive fast-charging 4,000mAh battery. Like the new Apple iPhones, the Razer Phone will not have a 3.5mm audio jack, but it will come with a USB-C adapter.

The Android 8.0 Oreo phone (it will ship with Nougat initially) boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a more than reasonable 8GB of RAM. It's uncertain why the gaming company is taking a crack at this sector, but it only means the already-crowded industry gains another player, and more players mean increased competition - and, boy, the Razer Phone can really compete.

All of this hints at the essential problem with the Razer Phone-it's built by a company with no previous experience in smartphone design in a market inundated with choice.

Cosmic-ray imaging reveals mysterious 'void' in Great Pyramid of Giza
Last year, the team found a smaller void on the North Face of the pyramid using a new technique called Muography. Muon particles originate from interactions between cosmic rays from space and atoms of Earth's upper atmosphere.

Mobile games are being optimised by partners for the Razer Phone display, with frame rates of up to 120fps. The company said games will be optimized for the device, pointing to some even running at 120 frames per second. The new Razer Phone is very different, resembling last year's crowdfunded Nextbit Robin more than any phone from the big guys.

The Razer Phone is priced at $699 (roughly Rs. 45,000) and will be available for purchase later this month.

Gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer announced that it's getting into the smartphone business with what's simply called The Razer Phone. For a device aimed at pro-gamers, the Razer phone appears to have arrived with all the right tools to get the job done. "This partnership sets the standard for the next generation of mobile screen play".

Dave Dyson, CEO at Three UK, said: "My ambition is always to innovate in ways that deliver better experiences to our customers and a partnership with Razer is a ideal fit". But it's historically been the case gamers care less about whether SSAO is implemented in a tiny smartphone screen, and more about whether they can play Angry Birds, Flappy Bird, or Minecraft.

For those who like Razer's traditional luminescent colours, there will be a Limited Edition model with a bright green logo.
