Razer Working on Second Generation of Its Gaming Phone

Posted on September 4, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Hardware with 2 Comments

Razer announced its first Android phone just around a year ago. The company’s flagship phone was heavily focused on gamers, with specs and hardware that will satisfy the needs of a mobile gamer.

And now, Razer is apparently making a new Razer Phone. The company said on its earning statements that the company plans to make a second generation Razer Phone, reports 9to5Google. While the gaming hardware company is yet to announce how well the original Razer Phone actually did, the firm says it was “very pleased” with the success of the first pone.

To build on that initial success, Razer is going to introduce the second generation of the Razer Phone. The firm hasn’t revealed any technical details about the device, though it will presumably feature all the latest high-end specs like a Snapdragon 845, more memory, a better display, better cameras, and maybe a notch? Let’s hope not.

One thing I am interested to see with the second generation Razer Phone is Project Linda — it’s a lot like Microsoft’s Continuum for Windows Phone devices. The company showed off a concept at CES where you could simply dock in your Razer Phone into a laptop and use it just like a regular laptop, with the mobile’s display acting as the touchpad. That was just a concept, of course, so it will be very interesting to see if it comes to fruition with the second gen Razer Phone.

    Lack of carrier support, as always, was the big problem here. I was interested in the Razer Phone for a simple reason: it had a freaking enormous battery in comparison to the competition. The intent was so you could keep gaming, which I'm not all that interested in, but I'd take the 2 day battery life that would come with it.

    Project Linda looked a lot like the Sentio Superbook, a Kickstarter I backed (and, unfortunately, am still waiting on to be delivered) - down to including the same apps Sentio built. I love the idea myself, especially in this era of >$1000 phones.
