Razer Phone 2 announced and you better believe it has RGB

Razer Phone 2 officially announced along with a mobile gamepad

Razer Phone 2 launched with Chroma RGB lighting, IP67-rating and wireless charging

Razer Phone 2 has a display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which means navigating the user interface and scrolling through web pages should be buttery smooth.

Razer has now announced the followup, obviously called the Razer Phone 2, and it improves on last year's model in many ways while retaining an nearly identical body and focus on gaming and media consumption.

Laden with Qualcomm's current top-shelf Snapdragon 845 chipset, the Razer Phone 2 gets a gaming performance boost of 30% compared to the original. We are glad that Razer is calling its piping this, and not a "liquid cooling system" as most other brands do.

The Razer Phone 2 packs a truckload of upgrades over its predecessor, including Dolby Atmos dual front-firing speakers, IP67 water resistance, and a redesigned dual-camera set-up with Sony IMX sensors. A hearty 4000 mAh keeps the light on during those long title sessions, and the familiar tri-headed snake logo alone raises the framerate twofold. The Razer Phone 2 looks very similar to its predecessor, but includes key refinements internally and externally - both for the better.

How much does the Razer Phone 2 cost? But Razer has improved the brightness of the display by 50 percent. This has allowed Razer to incorporate Qi wireless charging support, which seems to be a must-have feature these days. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack, but Razer bundles a 24-bit DAC dongle with the phone. Overall this phone measures 158.5 mm x 78.99 mm x 8.5 mm.

The camera was one of the weaker areas of the previous Razer gaming phone and we're seeing a substantial step up to correct this error on the Razer Phone 2. Round the front there is an 8MP camera that supports fullHD video streaming. The dual-camera setup found on the phone with optical image stabilization and a 2x zoom thanks to the second telephoto lens will certainly be an improvement. Razer will initially offer a high-gloss finish on the back glass, along with a matte finish that will accompany the larger internal storage option later this year. Out of the box, the device will be coming with Android 8.1 Operating system and might be getting further updates also. The phone is scheduled to be officially unveiled later tonight.

The new phone will be made available "soon" in select Asia-Pacific markets including Singapore, Razer said.

Also, it wouldn't be gaming hardware without RGB lighting.
