The Razer Phone surfaces on GFXBench with Snapdragon 835 onboard
Back in July 2015, Nextbit introduced the Robin Android smartphone. In early 2017, the company was acquired by Razer. Now, we are only a few weeks away from the launch of the first Razer smartphone. Earlier this week, Razer confirmed that the so-called "Razer Phone" is scheduled to launch on November 1. The device is now listed on GFXBench with a set of specs and features that looks impressive.
According to the benchmark database entry mentioned above, the Razer Phone has a 5.7-inch 1440p touchscreen display and sports the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that most flagships are using these days. Next to that powerful chip, this handset for gamers comes with no less than 8 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage, reveals GFXBench.
The Razer Phone also features NFC connectivity, a 12 MP main camera with 4K video recording and HDR support, and an 8 MP selfie shooter. Sadly, it looks like this phone has no microSD slot and only one SIM card is supported. The operating system installed on this model is Android 7.1.1 Nougat that might come with a custom UI since it is listed as "Android Razer Edition" by the well-known benchmark database.
Since Razer has been manufacturing gaming-related gear for a while, we can only hope that their phone comes with a few unique features for gamers. Unfortunately, we have no info about that yet, but we hope to see more official teasers that give us at least a few hints on the path that leads us to the official launch. We will get back to this interesting mobile device as soon as we find out anything new about it, so stay tuned.
