Razer Phone 2 leaked images

The Razer Phone 2 is set to make its official debut later today, but apparently one retailer just couldn't wait for the announcement to put up a product page for Razer's new phone.

A listing for the Razer Phone 2 briefly appeared on Amazon Italy earlier today. The page included several renders of the Razer Phone 2, showing a device that looks largely similar to the original model but with a redesigned dual rear camera setup.

Also included in the product page were some spec details. According to Amazon's listing, the Razer Phone 2 will offer a 5.7-inch 2560x1440 display with 120Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 845 processor with Vapor Chamber cooling, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot. Also said to be included are dual 12MP rear cameras and IP67 water and dust resistance.

The dual front-facing speakers found on the Razer Phone will reportedly be available on the Razer Phone 2, and around back, Razer has reportedly included a Chroma RGB logo. The pricing included in this leaked Razer Phone 2 listing was set at €871 ($1,003 USD), but considering that the original Razer Phone launched at a price of $699 USD, I wouldn't expect the new model to cost that much more in the U.S.

According to these leaked specs, the Razer Phone 2 may not be a huge spec upgrade over the original model. The first Razer Phone was a pretty well-specced device, though, offering features like a big screen with a high refresh rate, dual front speakers, and 8GB of RAM. The good news is that it sounds like Razer will be including Qualcomm's newer Snapdragon 845 processor in the Razer Phone 2, and perhaps we'll see some camera improvements in the new model as well.
