Razer obviously isn’t known for its smartphones. But with the company’s recent acquisition of Nextbit, many of us have been eagerly awaiting a potential Razer smartphone of sorts. Just two weeks ago, a picture of the alleged Razer device leaked showing off its dual cameras. Now, a mobile carrier in the UK has leaked a product page for the Razer Phone, and potato photo aside, it’s mighty interesting.
According to the product page that British mobile provider 3G UK posted, the Razer Phone will have some serious power under the hood. It’ll sport a 120Hz 5.72″ IGZO display, as well as 8GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a giant 4000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0+, and THX-certified dual front-facing speakers with Dolby ATMOS. The dual camera setup out back consists of a 12MP f/1.75 wide-angle sensor and a 13MP f/2.6 zoom unit. There’s also something called “4G Super-Voice” listed, which appears to be some sort of tech that prevents dead zones. It looks like the phone will run a stock-ish version of Android, given the clean-looking lock screen. Oh, and check out that 13:37 Easter egg in the potato-cam photo. Razer has a sense of humor.
A reddit user (/u/The_King_of_Okay) dug up two links pointing to Razer becoming an official partner with 3G UK and Three as a whole (3G is, confusingly, a subsidiary of Three), indicating that Razer is working hard to expand its smartphone brand. In fact, the 3G UK press release goes as far as to say, “We may even see Razer-branded handsets exclusively on Three, offering all the power needed by gamers.”
So let’s see what exactly is unveiled on November 1st, but I suspect this will be the star of the show.
