The Razer phone kicked off the trend of gaming smartphones that we’ve seen over the last year. The ASUS ROG phone and Xiaomi Black Shark followed. Rumblings about the Razer Phone 2 have picked up in the last week. Razer already confirmed the device and a rumor says it could have cool Chrome LED effects. But now we’re getting a close look at the device via a leaked render.
The image above is the Razer Phone 2. If you’re thinking it looks a lot like the original, you are correct. The design is basically unchanged. A side-by-side comparison shows the only difference is the lock screen wallpaper. This actually isn’t that big of a surprise. When Razer showed off the Project Linda laptop that uses the Razer Phone as a trackpad, it seemed likely that the next phone would have to fit in that same spot.
There are some very subtle differences if you look close. The front cameras are a little farther apart and the side bezels are a bit thicker. We don’t know much about the internals yet, but it’s possible they could see as little change as the design. Current rumors peg the device as having 8GB of RAM, the Snapdragon 845 SoC, 512GB of storage, and Android 8.1 Oreo. It will undoubtedly have the same great display, which had a QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh rate.
No official release date has been announced yet, but the October 10th date on the lock screen could be a clue. That would put it one day behind the Pixel 3 event.
