The Razer Phone sports a 5.7-inch 2K display that uses a Sharp IGZO panel, and is capable of adjusting its refresh rate of up to 120Hz, depending on what you’re doing. Basically, you get smooth and fluid animations when gaming, and slightly less when the phone is idle.

It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with 8GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+ support. It also runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Nova Launcher Prime on top, with a planned update to Oreo in Q1 of 2018.

For imaging, the Razer Phone features two 12MP cameras at the back, one with a wide-angle lens, and one with a telephoto lens. It also has front firing speakers, Dolby Atmos Technology, and is the first smartphone to have THX audio certification.

The Razer phone has a 24-bit DAC, which promises audiophile-grade sound quality. But for all it has, it doesn’t have a headphone jack. At least, you do get a dongle for connecting your favorite pair of headphones.
