    Flagship//Gaming has never looked this good, meet the Razer Phone 2: http://rzr.to/phone2


    The next generation Razer Phone is here, and the silky-smooth screen is better than ever. The 5.7’’ UltraMotion display boasts true 120Hz touch sampling and display refresh rate—making this the fastest screen in mobile gaming.

    Coupled with the unapologetically loud Dolby Atmos dual front-firing stereo speakers, the Razer Phone 2 supports both HDR and 5.1 surround sound content. Perfect for games, music, and movies on the go, nothing comes close to this ultimate mobile entertainment machine.

    What’s more, we made no compromises with the all-new upgrades. Featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 2.8GHz processor, 8GB RAM, and advanced vapor chamber cooling—the Razer Phone 2 provides great performance at work and play. We’ve even upgraded the camera, so you can capture stunning photographs and precious memories no matter where you are.

    Last but certainly not least, we’ve added Wireless Fast Charging so you can get juiced up quick, IP67 water resistance to weather any storm, and of course an illuminated logo powered by Razer Chroma for full on customization.

    Premium flagship features combined with industry leading gaming performance—this is the all-new Razer phone 2. This is Flagship//Gaming: http://rzr.to/phone2

    Great phone! I wonder if any carriers in Canada will work with it, and if the $799 is usd so it would be more in Canada or if it will be the same across the bored.
    That was a concept at CES, so it may be a long time even if it does become a real product. Those bigger more arcane concepts don’t become real products very quickly because they might have issues or they may cost way to much to make it worth it.

    So it supports verizon but the lte 25 band was removed which killed its sprint support capability...

    Interesting to see how the IP rating is gonna work with those giant speakers. Sound might not be the same as the Razer Phone 1.

    Is the Cortex app gonna be available through the Playstore? Or it is restricted to the RP1 and RP2. :slightly_sad:

    my thoughts as well. If it's anything like what Logitech did with the UE roll 1 & 2 (my only real experience with decent water resistant speakers, bluetooth no less). It might be decent quality. I was thinking Razer would go the lifeproof case route for the water resistance. That way speakers would not be messed with, nor thermals for that matter and still have protection via a case.

    I managed to fix my Google Nexus 6P recently by replacing the battery so I can hold off until the next Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 5G Technology comes out.

    But I do have to say that Razer did a great job with this one. If I have to buy a phone right now, I would definitely buy the Razer Phone 2 over the Google Pixel 3 XL especially since the Google Pixel was very disappointing this year.

    Keep up the good work Razer and don't copy the Apple iPhone lineup like what Google did with their Pixel phones. I have a lot more respect towards this company with how much more original the Razer Phone 2 is and how it defies the mainstream aesthetics like the ugly notch in favor of what gamers want such as good front-firing stereo speakers.

    All that AND still well under the thousand bucks other big names are trying to make into a normal phone price!

    Not surprised to see this after the recent cheap clearance Best Buy had on the gen 1 Razer phone.

    That's pretty awesome, but if Razer Phone could have a IP68 water resistance and Sony Hi-Res Audio it will be my dreaming phone. I'm using Xperia Xzs and hoping next time Razer could give me a real surprise since Sony has given up its traditional forms of its phones which I like and Razer Phone is the product which inherits the Sony's spirit in my opinion.
