Microsoft Store to sell Razer's new Android smartphone

Another area where the Razer Phone is head and shoulders above other even flagship smartphones is the brilliant display. The phone comes with Dolby Atmos audio and is certified by THX, the first for a smartphone.

The first major setback that the phone has or doesn't is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile processor, the smartphone comes with 8GB RAM and an internal storage capacity of 64 GB that can be extended using micro-SD card. The attention to sound will allow for a more cinematic mobile movie or gaming experience. The Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 technology on its USB-C port will also enable users to get it up and running fast when it does run out of juice.

On the back, it has two cameras with 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The back also includes a dual-tone LED flash module. The device will receive Android 8 in 2018.

The Nova Launcher is the default launcher on the phone. Expertly tuned audio delivers all the highs and lows of your favorites tracks whether you listen through the stereo speakers or your favorite headphones. To power up this device, the phone is also backed up by a 4000mAh battery pack.

Hence, you will be able to add hardware configurations to have a great gaming experience. With normal use, this battery will likely last most of the day, however the focus here is with gaming and mobile entertainment.

Razer CEO and co-founder Min-Liang Tan spoke at the launch: "It's common knowledge that I'm obsessed with my smartphones, I play a ton of games on them, and they're my go-to for streaming content".

But if you don't want to eat through that big phone battery by playing games at insane speeds, Razer has brought over another big feature from PC gaming: Choice. Most people already have the phone they want, and I'm curious to see how many will be wooed by nothing more than an (really nice) 120Hz display and the promise of Android gaming.

The announcement was made on Wednesday and it is assumed that the phone can outdo iPhone X, Pixel 2, and Samsung's Galaxy devices in terms of performance and the price range. Here in the United Kingdom, and in Ireland, Denmark and Sweden, 3 Mobile is the exclusive launch carrier.

Dave Dyson, CEO at Three UK, said: "My ambition is always to innovate in ways that deliver better experiences to our customers and a partnership with Razer is a flawless fit".

In Ireland, the phone will be available to order exclusively from Three from 7 November, with an official in-store launch to come on 17 November.

Razer has just announced the Razer Phone, an absolute beast of an Android device, coming soon to a palm near you. This area also provides a good place for your thumbs to rest while you're jamming away on whatever game you're going at, as long as it plays in landscape mode.
