Razer Phone 2 leaks thanks to premature Amazon listing

Finally, the handset was listed with a 5.72-inch LCD display sporting a QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh variable rate.

Razer has now announced the followup, obviously called the Razer Phone 2, and it improves on last year's model in many ways while retaining an nearly identical body and focus on gaming and media consumption.

As expected, the Razer Phone 2 has a Snapdragon 845 backed up by an insane 8GB of RAM. We are glad that Razer is calling its piping this, and not a "liquid cooling system" as most other brands do. How much for this wide-eyed gamer's puppy? In a world of $1000-and-up phones, I bet there will be more than a few Android users who will be happy with the Razer Phone 2's solid feature set for the price.

Boasting up to 30% increased performance when compared its predecessor, Razer has taken steps to substantially improve not only the components found inside the phone but also the methods with which they're cooled.

The Razer Phone 2, to add to the grand scheme of things, is also IP67-rated and supports wireless charging. It uses a dual-lens system with a wide 12MP f/1.75 lens and a 12MP f/2.6 telephoto lens, plus a dual LED flash. The front camera offers 60-FPS video at 1920x1080 for potentially crisp and smooth video chatting.

Among pacers, Mohammed Shami, who last played an ODI over a year ago, will once again be seen in the blue jersey. Hardik Pandya & Kedar Jadhav, who both picked up injuries during the Asia Cup, continue to be on the sidelines.

Razer hopes its gaming optimisation for titles such as PUBG Mobile and Marvel Suture Fight, and its work with developers will make its phone stand out for the gaming community.

Measuring at 158.5x78.99x8.5mm, the design is similar to what we saw in the first Razer Phone a year ago.

The glass rear of the product means it supports wireless charging and the camera system has also received a substantial upgrade. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack, but Razer bundles a 24-bit DAC dongle with the phone.

The rear of Razer Phone 2 features the Razer triple-headed snake logo that glows in 16.8 million colors. The phone is scheduled to be officially unveiled later tonight. Razer pre-installs its mildly tweaked version of Android 8.1, and a good track record of updates for the original Razer Phone should reassure software-conscious buyers. It will be available for $799 in Mirror Black and Satin Black variants in the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
