The Razer Phone is official — 120Hz 'Ultramotion' display, Snapdragon 835, 8GB RAM, $699
Razer has announced its new Android device: the aptly named Razer Phone. It has the world's first 120Hz "Ultramotion" display, the first use of Qualcomm's QuickCharge 4+, and a great set of specs like 8GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (further expandable via microSD), and a 4,000 mAh battery. It will cost $699 and pre-orders will be live as soon as today, with general availability for North America and Europe on November 17th.
On paper, the Razer Phone sounds like most 2017 flagships, but there's definitely more to it. Most of this device's unique appeal is a result of the screen. The 120Hz 1440x2560 IGZO display takes advantage of Qualcomm's QSync — similar to Nvidia's G-SYNC or AMD's FreeSync — so if performance ever does start to become a problem, you shouldn't see much stutter when it does drop below 120fps. If the framerate drops below the refresh rate, the display will adjust to match, without having to worry about tearing or stuttering.
So yes one has to wonder what the battery life will be like on this device...
