It has been rumored for quite awhile that Razer was going to debut an Android phone this year. ever since the company acquired Nextbit. Just yesterday, Razer posted a teaser on Twitter with a link to a livestream for November 1. Their “biggest reveal yet” is undoubtedly going to be the Razer Phone.
While there has been rumblings of a Razer Phone, we haven’t heard any details on what to expect from the phone. That has changed due to a new listing on GFXBench showing off the device’s specs. According to GFXBench, the Razer Phone will run a customized Razer version of Android 7.1.1 out of the box. It will also feature the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 processor backed by 8GB of RAM. The device will also feature 64GB of on-board storage, but it is unknown if it will be expandable.
Since this is expected to be a gaming phone, it is no surprise that it will feature a 5.7 inch QHD display. We do know that it will have a 16:9 aspect ratio, but we do not know if it will have an LCD or AMOLED panel. The Razer Phone will also sport a 12MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front-facing camera.
Camera samples from what could be the upcoming Razer Phone can be seen above. This was posted by Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tan on Instagram stating “some random test photos with a new camera #nofilter.” If that “new camera” turns out to be the Razer Phone, the device is looking pretty impressive.
