Razer, the gaming hardware giant, has launched its latest product – the Razer Phone, a smartphone designed for gaming.

First thing’s first – the dimensions. The Razer Phone is 158.5 x 77.7 x 8 mm (6.24 x 3.06 x 0.31 in), and it is encased in an aluminum body. You can see how it looks in the video below.

The main problem with playing games on your phone is that around mid-day you’ll probably need to charge up your battery, so you can enjoy playing on your way back. That’s why the Razer Phone is equipped with an enormous 4,000 mAh battery, with a Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ rapid charging technology.

Why does the Razer Phone needs such a powerful battery? Well, besides letting you play all day long – it needs to power up its unique screen: A 5.72″ Quad HD IGZO LCD screen. The screen is also tith the world’s first 120 Hz UltraMotion display, which means it has the fastest refresh rates in market.

Of course, in order to support this staggering display, the phone is powered up by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform and a huge amount of RAM: 8GB DDR4.

What is a smartphone without a camera, right? The Razer Phone comes with dual rear 12 MP cameras. One is for wide-angle shots, and the other has a f/2.6 2x telephoto zoom.

Next on the list – sound. Every gamer knows that a good-quality sound is a must have for the best gaming experience. Razer knows that too, and has equipped the Razer Phone with a pair of front-firing speakers with dual dedicated amplifiers, using Dolby Atmos technology.

In case you want your privacy – you can plug in your favorite headphones by using the THX-certified USB-C audio adapter with a 24-bit digital audio converter. The only downside is that you can’t use your headphones while charging the smartphone.

Because this a “smartphone for gamers”, Razer teamed up with some of the top gaming companies in order to bring you games that will take a full advantage of the phones’ hardware. These companies will develop a special version of their games that supports framerates of up to 120 fps.

Some of these games are:

  • Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition, Square Enix
  • RuneScape, Jagex Limited
  • Tekken, Bandai Namco
  • Titanfall: Assault, Nexon and Particle City
  • World of Tanks Blitz, Wargaming

The Razer Phone will cost you $700. There’s a special edition, of which only 1337 pieces will be available. The main difference between the editions is that the Razer logo on the back of the phone will be colored neon-green in the special edition.
