The Razer Phone was it's manufacturer's first attempt at building an Android phone with a gaming-focused outlook. It now appears that it will have a successor, which (as all the material on it to date suggest) is simply called the Razer Phone 2. On the other hand, it also seems that that is all we really have on the putative device right now.
The original Razer handset stood out with its 120Hz screen and dying-breed front-facing speakers. The website expertreviews.co.uk speculates that its second generation will bring improvements on the same. It also cites frandroid.com in claiming that the phone may be released in September. It follows that the Razer Phone 2 just may be debuted at IFA 2018.
However, there are no more concrete points of information about the phone at the time of writing. It may be reasonable to suppose that the phone will come with about 8GB of RAM (although one particularly eye-catching YouTube 'leak' video alleges that it will have 10). It is also not clear at this point if Razer will go with the Snapdragon 845, like every other 2018 flagship. There is also no pricing information at this stage. However, if this runs along the same lines as those of the original Razer Phone, it should cost no more than US$850 on release.
In the meantime, it will be interesting to see if Razer has addressed some issues seen as drawbacks in review (e.g. its rather sharp corners) while designing their second Android phone.
