We’ve been hearing rumors starting last month about a potential successor to the Razer Phone and now, leaked information from benchmarking tools, Geekbench and AnTuTu, have drawn us a rough picture of the specs of Razer’s new upcoming gaming phone.
Based on the leaks, the ‘Razer Phone 2’ is packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage, and a 2560x1440p 120Hz high refresh rate display. Par for the course, it’s running on Android 8.1 Oreo, but that could be updated to Android Pie after it’s officially announced.
The AnTuTu score seem quite normal while the Geekbench scores are lower than what you would expect from a Snapdragon 845-equipped smartphone.
Granted, this is an unreleased and unfinished product at this point, but Razer really has quite the daunting task of squeezing more performance out of the Snapdragon 845 if it wants to stand out among its many rivals.
Upon release, it will go head to head with the Xiaomi Black Shark and the ASUS ROG Phone, both equipped with the same SoC and 8 GB of RAM.
It will be an interesting showdown between these three devices and the approaches and philosophies Razer, ASUS, and Xiaomi use for a gaming phone.
