Razer has unveiled its new US$799 Razer Phone 2

Razer Phone 2 officially announced along with a mobile gamepad

The previous Razer Phone was criticized for its mediocre camera. And the back is now made out of glass so wireless charging support is on offer. Overall this phone measures 158.5 mm x 78.99 mm x 8.5 mm. You can choose to have the logo light up when you get app notifications or have it display different effects.

The Razer Phone 2 also has a hefty 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM.

While extremely similar to its predecessor in most aspects, the Razer Phone 2 does introduce some novelties. The company is using the Razer vapor chamber cooling system to keep the internals cool under heavy load. Razer is shipping the Razer Phone 2 with Android 8.1 and Nova launcher.

Also improved is the camera, which is now a dual camera system with a 12MP optically stabilized wide angle lens and a 12MP 2x telephoto lens. Just a few days ago, Google unveiled the Pixel 3 phones, practically confirming every rumor that we heard in the past few months.

Sharma leads India's largest contingent at CIMB Classic
I've been quite consistent with my play, but I didn't have enough good finishes on the board, after the win at the CIMB Classic . I've been playing Malaysia Open many times, especially on this course I'm playing so well and have a good record over here.

The speakers on the device mean the Razer Phone 2 does not deliver an all-screen design similar to the iPhone Xs or its other Android rivals.

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 new phone will also continue to have industry-leading features such as its 120hz display. Coupled with the return of the 120Hz display and the fact that the device is running a lightweight implementation of Android, anyone who games a lot on their mobile device will certainly at the very least want to consider the Razer Phone 2 this fall.

One of the most identifiable features about the Razer Phone 2 is its illuminated logo that sits on the back of the product. It will be available for $799 in Mirror Black and Satin Black variants in the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The San Francisco, California-based manufacturer hasn't outright referenced its price hike but apparently feels convinced the newer chip, RGB lights, and extra software tweaks and additions are worth the price difference. Something which was lacking on the original Razer Phone, and was perhaps one of the most requested features, should Razer launch a second device.
