Razer launched the "Razer Phone 2" today, and it retains many features that made Razer's first phone stand out. Like the original, it has a 120hz 2560x1440 LCD with support for variable refresh rate input, HDR content, and a 120hz touch sampling rate. Combined with the Snapdragon 845, a vapor chamber cooling system, and 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, Razer seems to think it is one of the most responsive Android phones on the market. While it doesn't have a headphone jack, the headset does feature stereo front firing speakers, Dolby Atmos support, and a "24-bit DAC Audio Adapter." On the back, Razer went with a wide angle/telephoto dual camera setup. Razer will paint the phone with any color you want, as long as its black, though the 64GB and 128GB models do come with different finishes, an SDCard slot, IP67 water resistance, and RGB lighting. The Razer Phone 2 starts at $799, which actually undercuts recent flagships like Google's Pixel 3 or LG's V40.

Industry-leading gaming performance meets premium flagship features-the Razer Phone 2 is the ultimate daily driver that smoothly handles your work, unleashes supreme mobile gaming power, and even lets you enjoy an unparalleled mobile entertainment experience. This time it comes with massive upgrades, featuring an upgraded processor with vapor chamber cooling, wireless charging, water resistance, and the long-awaited illuminated logo with Razer Chroma.
