Razer Phone 2 is Officially a Go

That most likely means upgrading to the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, or maybe even the next one after it depending on when the Razer Phone 2 will launch. In other words, that's US$16.5 million in growth, which was attributed to the Razer Phone. Now, the company has confirmed that the successor to the Razer Phone is in the works, and that it is "now focusing its resources into the development" of the new device. There are also plans to bring some of the company's PC software to the mobile space.

That might suggest the Razer Phone 2 (which is an unconfirmed name, by the way) will be rolled out in bigger numbers, targeting a wider audience, as well as the same "very positive" critical reception as its forerunner.

The Razer Phone arguably kick-started the current era of gaming smartphones following its 2017 release. The company has several PC services, such as its zGold wallet and rewards platform and its Razer Game Store, which could be prime candidates for a mobile release. The Razer Phone was launched with a price tag of $700 which was a bit on the higher side but hopefully, Razer will be able to maintain an acceptable price when it announces its successor later this year. But then, it is safe to assume that the Razer Phone 2 will be made available flaunting top caliber features as its predecessor has been praised with its powerful specs.

Unique feature possibilities aside, it's still nice to see Razer take another stab at a gaming-focused smartphone - in an industry that's relatively lacking in innovation, Razer is trying something different, and it just might pay off.
