Gaming company launches phone good enough for everyone

The smartphone is also equipped with a "quad HD" display with a refresh rate of 120Hz.

On to the display - it's a big 5.7in IGZO LCD with a QHD resolution, wide colour gamut and 120Hz refresh rate, just as the rumours said. That Ultramotion tech includes adaptive refresh rate - syncing the GPU and display to reduce the likelihood of image tearing or lag while driving efficient power usage. Instead, you can plug headphones in via the Type-C USB port and a 3.5mm-to-Type-C adaptor is bundled-in with the phone. Huawei's Kirin 970 processor - while not as popular as other chips - is quite a powerful SoC, and the same go for Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 and Samsung's Exynos 8895 chipsets. Initially, the Razer Phone will run on Android Nougat but it will receive the upgrade to Android Oreo in spring of next year. In every aspect, the Razer smartphone is an incredible gaming device and the best of its kind for a first launch except for the expensive price tag $699.99 which is a given considering the specs of the phone.

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.

Razer's first phone is expected to hit the shelves on November 17th and is available for pre-order with a price point of $699.

We'll know just how important gaming is to phone owners sometime after the Razer Phone starts shipping internationally November 17th. The name of the phone is Razer phone.

Taking inspiration from Razer's range of gaming laptops, the Phone is crafted from matt black aluminium, giving it the appearance of a stealth jet.

Razer has finally launched its gaming-focused smartphone, a day after announcing its initial public offering.

One person in custody, multiple fatalities in Manhattan
The Associated Press initially reported 15 people were injured in the incident, but later corrected that number to 11. US President Donald Trump said on Twitter that "a very sick and deranged person" had carried out the attack.


"Today, we are the world's leading lifestyle brand for the 2.2bn gamers worldwide and we continue to disrupt the gaming industry with the Razer ecosystem of hardware, software and services", Razer CEO and founder Min-Liang Tan said. "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 for our customers and a partnership with Razer is a ideal fit".

Flanking the display are two large speakers, each with a dedicated amp.

There is an enormous Razer logo in green shading on the back and we anticipate that the organization will make it illuminated.
