The Razer Phone 2 is making its presence felt. Almost on a daily basis. Just yesterday it got listed on Geekbench benchmarks, now it has made its way to AnTuTu benchmarks revealing its key specifications. Though the Geekbech leak did reveal vital configurations of the upcoming gaming phone from Razer, AnTuTu benchmark listing reveals some more critical information.
The key highlight of this leak is the fact that the Razer Phone 2 may still have an old-school display with 16:9 aspect ratio. The resolution 1440*2560 suggests the same. Razer seems to have retained the stereo speakers at the top and bottom bezels like the ones present in the original Razer phone.
Other specifications of the Razor 2 may include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with Adreno 630 GPU, a mammoth 8GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage. It also reveals that the Razer 2 may run on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and an impressive benchmark score of 283,397 which puts the phone right at the top performers in the league. Though by the time the phone goes official, we can expect that the Razer 2 comes out with Android 9 Pie.
The Razer Phone 2 will (highly likely) finally have Chroma LED effects built in. They're working to use an LED controller from Texas Instruments to make this happen so the phone lights up when notifications come in.— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) September 7, 2018
Reports suggest that the Razer Phone 2 may implement Razer’s iconic Chroma lighting. For those unaware, it is basically an LED technology that Razer incorporates in almost all its gaming products, Keyboards, Mice and laptops etc. This LED light can be customized as per the users need and taste. It also allows the lighting system to automatically switch between a variety of colors.
When Razer had initially announced the Razer phone, people did expect the company to include Chroma LED lighting into the phone however that didn’t happen may be due to hardware restriction. Now with the improved hardware specifications, Razer is said to be working with Texas Instruments to implement the Chroma lighting system in the Razer Phone 2.
