Razer is also launching a new gaming phone this year and the corresponding invitations to the media have already revealed the launch date. Called as Razer Phone 2, the device may come powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and 8GB RAM. The display size and in fact, the look as well is reportedly unchanged.
We have seen some leaked press-renders of the alleged device that have reflected the design is unchanged. Now, the device is spotted on the Google Play Console, however, the listing doesn’t reveal anything exclusive.
The listing reveals that the device’s code-name is “aura” and it has 8GB RAM and Snapdragon 835 processor with the Adreno 540 GPU. It’s somewhat disappointing to note that the upcoming device will still carry a processor from the past. We were expecting the Razer Phone 2 to come with Snapdragon 845 processor with the Adreno 630 GPU. Also, the Geekbench listing revealed the Snapdragon 845 processor but, this Google Play Console listing is contradicting.
However, XDA Developers, who has contacted many of its trusted sources on this information, said that this description might not be true entirely. It’s unclear if that information is based on actual device properties submitted during the CTS certification or marketing information that Razer copy and passed from the original Phone.
Talking about the other specifics, the listing shows the device will have a resolution of 1440x2560 pixels resolution. The render included in the listing shows a pre-installed “Chroma” app that could be rumored app to control LED effects for notifications.
The information caught up this time is pretty obscure and not clear as well. So, let’s wait for more information to come.
