The Razer Phone appealed to a large enough crowd that Razer has confirmed it will be releasing a successor to the gaming device. Renders of the Razer Phone 2 surfaced a short while ago, showing a device that looks identical to its predecessor bar a few changes.

Razer all but kicked off the gaming smartphone rat race last year, with the Razer Phone doing well enough to convince OEMs like Xiaomi, Nubia, and Asus to have a go at making their own gaming devices. The company recently confirmed that it would be releasing a direct successor to the Razer Phone, and renders of that device finally appeared earlier in the week.

There’s no major takeaway from the leaked renders, as the Razer Phone 2 and its predecessor look identical. The only significant difference in design appears to be the dual rear camera placement. While the Razer Phone sports two cameras horizontally aligned at the top left corner of the device’s rear, the second-gen opts for two horizontally aligned sensors at the middle of its back—a bit like the Galaxy Note 9’s, in fact—but with the LED flash between the two sensors.

The selfie camera placement remains the same across both iterations of the phone, and there aren’t any notable differences in bezel sizes or form factor.

It’s unknown when the Razer Phone 2 will be launched but with last year’s release in mind, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a November launch.
