Ten months after acquiring smartphone maker Nextbit, Gaming company Razer has finally revealed its first smartphone device.

As you would expect, the phone is particularly tailored to attract gamers as the specs tilt towards supporting gaming applications.

Earlier this year, the gaming company, Razer had taken over Nextbit including the management and employees of the company.

After 2011, Razer’s new prototypes again stolen from CES 2017

Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 8GB RAM makes sure your phone never stops in the middle of the game.

It also has a 120Hz refresh rate which is twice the refresh rate than most smartphones offer.

Along with that, it has Quad HD display depicting vibrant colours on the screen.

Like the iPhone 7, Razer has ditched the headphone jack giving the music an “audiophile-quality” sound.

The phone is also equipped with 4,000 mAh battery that gives limitless time for you to play, listen to music or watch videos.

Priced at $699, its ideally placed to capture perfect images with the f1.7 wide-angle lens and a 12MP dual camera.

Although the phone boasts some impressive specs many smartphone analysts stated the phone isn’t quite living up to its gaming hype. It doesn’t have the exclusive gaming specifications that it marketed itself on.
