Android Razer Phone Pumps Up Features For Gamers
"We have wanted to make a phone with gaming-level tech for years," said Razer Co-Founder/CEO Min-Liang Tan. "The Razer Phone delivers in every way we imagined." They've got quite an imagination.
Gamers love to have leading stats and Razer's approach to "more power" might induce shock. Display uses 120Hz UltraMotion with a wide color gamut to show more, faster and more smoothly. The two speakers have independent amplifiers, Dolby Atmos quality, and a line out provides 24-bit THX audiophile-grade sound. The list goes on (and on). The Qualcomm Snapdragon processor controls 8 GB RAM, 64 GB storage. Cameras front and back, large quick-charging battery, customizable performance features.
"Razer has produced something that is a step ahead of any other mobile gaming device," said Three U.K. CEO Dave Dyson.
Both Razer Phone and its release are synchronized with and optimized for multiple game company partnerships, for example Tencent's upcoming U.S. launch of "Arena Of Valor," described as a "multiplayer online battle arena."
"'Arena Of Valor' brings gamers a fast-paced, competitive experience, and the Razer Phone was built to handle the visuals, sound and quick-reflex mechanics of the game," said Tencent Games Global Marketing Director Vincent Gao. "This partnership sets the standard for the next generation of mobile screen play."
"We're not getting into the phone business," Tan told Rolling Stone. "The phone business is coming to us."
