The Razer Phone Is Here, But Is It For Real?

Read More Nokia 2 With 2 Day Battery Life Launched In India

"Arena of Valor brings gamers a fast-paced, competitive experience, and the Razer phone was built to handle the visuals, sound and quick-reflex mechanics of the game".

For starters, it's about the design.

The rear cameras are made up of a 12 megapixel wide angle camera and a 13 megapixel Zoom camera.

Why was ghosting a concern?

According to the listing, which has minimal specifications, the Razer Phone will sport a 5.72-inch IGZO display with 120Hz refresh rate which clears that the device is targeted at gamers. There's no time for a frame to linger longer than it's welcome. We're slightly disappointed with this given Razer's propensity for picking names such as Naga or Manticore for its other products. Razer has assured that the high refresh rate will have no impact on the battery life.

That frame rate is insane.

Taylor Swift's new music video promo uses the 'Batman Forever' font
The futuristic video clip was first released on the singer's Instagram seven hours ago and already has over two-million likes. There, she's reanimated as a robot, wearing only a second-skin bodysuit that appears to make her look totally nude.

The Razer Phone will come with one of the most popular custom launchers for Android, Nova Launcher Prime, pre-installed, giving users unprecedented customization options and all the trendy features that arrived with Android 8.0. The framerate never dropped below 80. Capping the frame rate on a mobile game has been a common practice as most displays are capable of only 30 or 60fps.

But if you don't want to eat through that big phone battery by playing games at insane speeds, Razer has brought over another big feature from PC gaming: Choice. The company emphasized that the Razer Phone targets those consumers who are after high-quality gaming experience right in their mobile devices. So you can do 30 on something like Twitter or Facebook and 120 on Final Fantasy XV.

And will people beyond Razer's admittedly hardcore fanbase, even be interested in this phone?

Razer has been solidifying itself as a gaming company, from the moment it acquired Android-based console maker Ouya, released its Razer Serval gaming controller at Google Play, to the creation of its Nabu watch that's "smart, but not a smartwatch".

Why on earth would anybody need a 120Hz mobile phone display?

Razer revealed its first ever smartphone at an event in London yesterday evening and while it's quite nice to see a new player entering the flagship smartphone market we wonder if Razer really needed to enter it. Sadly there is no word when will the device hit markets like India.
