Razer confirms that the Razer Phone 2 is in development


The Razer Phone was the first dedicated gaming smartphone which was later followed by the Asus ROG Phone. That most likely means upgrading to the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, or maybe even the next one after it depending on when the Razer Phone 2 will launch. To recall, Razer has a few nifty PC services like the Razer Game Store, and its zGold wallet and rewards platform, and both of these services (and more) could make their way to the mobile device when it launches.

What the Razer Phone 2 will include is anyone's guess, however the inclusion of the statement that they will ' extend its software and services from PC into the mobile market' sounds intriguing.

After Razer acquired Nextbit in early 2017, we knew that a Razer Phone was inevitable. There is now more proof to that, thanks to a couple of paragraphs in the company's financial report.

"The Group is very pleased with the success of its first generation Razer Phone, which was released in a limited run and has garnered very positive reviews internationally".

When we reviewed Razer Phone a year ago, we loved almost everything about the device, minus the bulky hardware and lackluster cameras. But then, it is safe to assume that the Razer Phone 2 will be made available flaunting top caliber features as its predecessor has been praised with its powerful specs.

Razer will launch new products and given the complaint that there were no new GPUs in H1 this year (GPUs are the main motivation for people to buy a new gaming laptop), theres a good chance that will see laptops with Nvidias new Turing architecture.
