Razer Phone 2 specs: Familiar, but better in all the ways that matter

The front of the Razer Phone 2. It’s flagship season and that means plenty of high profile releases from LG, Google, and more. Now Razer is joining the fray, with its newly announced Razer Phone 2. The original model was one of 2017’s most surprising flagships, offering an 120Hz display, a big battery, and plenty of horsepower. How does the company’s second release fare in the specs department? We’ve got the answers for you — check out the specs table below.  Razer Phone 2 Display5.72-inch IGZO LCD 1440 x 2560 resolution 513ppi 120Hz Wide Color Gamut Corning Gorilla Glass 5 ProcessorQualcomm Snapdragon 845 GPUAdreno 630 RAM8GB LPDDR4x Storage64GB or 128GB UFS MicroSDYes, up to 1TB CamerasRear cameras: 12MP wide-angle sensor with f/1.75 aperture, OIS, PDAF 12MP 2x telephoto sensor with f/2.6 aperture, PDAF Dual tone, dual LED flash Front camera: 8MP fixed focus sensor with f/2.0 aperture SoundStereo front-facing speakers Dual amplifiers Audio adapter with THX-certified DAC Battery4,000mAh Non-removable Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0+ Qi fast wireless charging ConnectivityWi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Dual band MIMO with 2x2 antennae Bluetooth 5.0 NFC USB Type-C NetworkCAT18 DL/CAT13 UL GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 WCDMA: B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B8 FDD-LTE: B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B7/B8/B12/B13/B14/B17/B18/B19/B20/B26/B28/B29/B30/B32/B66/B71 TDD-LTE: B38/B39/B40/B41/B48 LAA: B46 TDSCDMA: B34/B39 SoftwareAndroid 8.1 Oreo Dimensions and weight158.5 x 78.9 x 8.5mm 220g You might be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the Razer Phone 2 and its predecessor when looking at the front of the phone. We’ve got a 120Hz Sharp-made IGZO LCD screen (2,560 x 1,440) with the same 16:9 screen ratio, and the same camera and proximity sensor position. Look at the back and you’ll notice a few differences, such as a redesigned dual-camera housing and an illuminated Razer logo/LED notification light. The biggest design-related difference is the addition of IP67 water/dust resistance, which instantly makes the new phone more durable than the original model. The rear cameras on the Razer Phone 2. As you’d expect from a 2018 flagship, the Razer Phone 2 packs a Snapdragon 845 chipset. This means that if you had a few games that were struggling to hit 120fps on the older phone, they should be a little closer to that magic mark. Other than the chipset upgrade, it’s business as usual with 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage. Editor's PickWhy hardcore gaming phones are now a thing Asus Playing games on our mobile phones has been popular for a long time, but for the most part popular games are pretty casual fare, like Angry Birds, Candy Crush, or Pokémon Go. Plenty of Android games … The original Razer Phone had a very respectable 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+, so we’re happy to see the sequel maintain this setup. There is one battery-related addition however, as the Razer Phone 2 sports Qi wireless charging. So if you have a Qi-compatible wireless charging pad, you’re good to go. The Razer Phone 2 changes very little in terms of camera-related specifications. You get two 12MP main cameras (a normal and telephoto shooter), and an 8MP selfie snapper. We do see optical image stabilization on the main camera, however, so hopefully this makes a big difference compared to the original phone. All in all, we see a few meaningful additions to the spec sheet, but does this all make for a must-have flagship? You’ll have to read our Razer Phone 2 review to find out.
