While Razer is primarily known for its work in the gaming field, the 12-year-old company is also planning to get into the smartphone market. Taking to an event in London earlier today, Razer has introduced the fittingly-titled Razer Phone. Billed as a phone for gamers, the Razer Phone is powered by Android and comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, 64GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, a dual 12-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera and more. Regarding the physical details, Razer’s new creation has a 5.74 inch, 120hz display; as The Verge notes, this might be the first time a smartphone has come out with a 120hz display. Consumers can also expect the Razer Phone to use Android Nougat 7.1.1. when it arrives, while Android Oreo 8.0 is expected to be added in the beginning of next year.
You can take a look at The Verge‘s visual breakdown of the new Razer Phone above, and expect the phone to retail for $699 USD; pre-orders will launch soon, and begin hitting North American and European locations on November 17.
