10 Facts About Razer Phone, The Not-so-S’pore Phone That Isn’t Coming to S’pore Yet

We’ve all heard the buzz on how there’s going to be a gaming smartphone in town pretty soon, and well, it is from Singapore leh.

Okay, maybe not from Singapore, but the founder is a Singaporean, so we took a lot of liberty in calling it a Singapore phone. Don’t blame us; it’s not often that we can make this kind of association.

But here are 10 facts that you’d want to know before the phone, because why not?

About the Camera
Yes, let’s talk about this first. There are dual 12-megapixel cameras on its back end, both of which give you different variations as far as optical zoom is concerned. One covers wide angled pictures, while another is a telephoto.

There’s another 8MP camera up front also.

A Speedy Chip
This bad boy runs on a Snapdragon 835 chip, the very one that Google’s Pixel 2 uses, and the Galaxy S8 too!

Clear Clarity in Your Display
The Razer phone has a 5.72 inch screen which is equipped with a slick 120Hz display. Its screen refreshes at a super-fast speed, so much so that you’ll get a seamless view while you scroll or game on your phone. This feature’s already on the iPad Pro, but it’s possibly the first ever in a smartphone. And the reason for this? It’s a gaming phone first, WhatsApp phone second.

Kinda Lightweight
The phone weighs a mere 197 grams. No lugging around heavy stuff in your bag or pocket.

On Its Internal Storage
The phone comes with 64Gb of space, but if that’s not going to be enough for you, throw in a microSD card, and you’d be able to expand that figure to 1TB. Now that’s a HUGE amount of a storage space. Then again, it’s a gaming phone: we who use it for mere WhatsApp won’t need 1TB of storage, do we?

Crazy Sound Features
Imagine a phone that has a superb sound effect. Razer’s smartphone comes with speakers that have Dolby ATMOS within, so as far as you and your games are concerned, your audio effects are covered.

The Android Nougat 7.1.1
This possibly another reason to grab this phone when it’s in the market. There are also plans in place to update it to Android Oreo 8.0 when it’s out in 2018.

Fingerprint Censor Activated
Yes, there’s a fingerprint censor on its power button that’s on the side end of the phone. Not something new, but still, cool.

A Strong Battery
4,000 mAh is one of the biggest battery capacities you’ll find in the market – absolutely no need to bring your power bank around with you. Listen, play and watch as much as you like without worrying about a red back sticking out like a sore thumb. You can game as much as an N-gage (anyone remembers the first gaming phone?).

Wireless Features
The phone runs on Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Sounds all technical and stuff, but It makes your online experience a dream.

Availability
Okay, maybe we took too much liberty in calling this a “Singapore phone”, because unfortunately, it won’t be in Singapore yet. Currently, the phone will be released in the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark and Sweden at USD$699, and so far there hasn’t been any update on whether it’ll be available here in Singapore.

Too bad. We need some magic from Razer to bring it to Singapore, but given how small our market is, maybe we should be contented that at least a Google phone is finally coming to Singapore after soooooo many years.
