Razor is bringing a flagship phone and that's now seen on GFXbench

Razor is bringing a flagship phone and that's now seen on GFXbench

While that's still a couple of weeks away, the device's potential specs have already found its way online via the benchmarking site GFXBench, which showed a listing for the upcoming device simply called "Razer Phone". It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and 8GB of RAM. There is also 64GB of internal storage.

After sharing a tantalizing tease on social media, Razer is set to announce its newest venture this 1 November.

Razer will probably market it as a gaming-centric smartphone, which makes sense as the company mainly focuses on the gaming department.

"As per the listing, the Razer smartphone will come with a 5.7" display running on a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels, which is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

The Razer Phone is an unexpected decision from the company who has pioneered in developing computing gaming peripherals with extended features, modified aesthetics and a premium experience.

Razer is supposedly positioning this phone as a device meant for gamers, which would certainly explain the abundance of RAM onboard.

Overall, the upcoming Razer smartphone seems to be a beast in terms of its processor and RAM. So Razer might just have an advantage over those phones. The device will run on a custom user interface, which will be based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Moving on to optics, the Razer smartphone has been tipped to come with a primary 12-megapixel sensor at the back and an 8-megapixel sensor at the front for clicking selfies. Razer is likely to add its own skin to the Android OS. Razer didn't outline its plans for Nextbit at the time, though analysts widely believed the move signaled Razer's interest in mobile devices.

There's no word yet on how much the new Razer smartphone will cost and there's even no information yet on its official name.
