We've been hearing quite a bit about the Razer Phone 2 over the past few months, and today, the company finally announced its second-generation gaming phone. The Razer Phone 2 looks very similar to its predecessor, but includes key refinements internally and externally -- both for the better. The big internal change is the addition of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in place of the old Snapdragon 835. Razer says that new mobile chip offers a 30 percent uplift in performance compared to its predecessor, which combined with the Adreno 630 GPU should mean even smoother gameplay... Read more...
Razer is mostly known for making slick gaming laptops, mice and keyboards, but over the last couple of years the company has branched out greatly.

Razer is going to be releasing another smartphone built for gaming, one that will presumably look similar to the company's first generation Razer Phone, but with upgraded hardware and features. However, it doesn't look like Razer will be upgrading the second-gen handset with a 3.5mm audio jack, and feature that isn't included on the current generation model either. Notorious inside man and leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter) posted to social media what looks to be an official press render of the Razer Phone 2. He said it's "almost identical to the first one from a design perspective," though... Read more...

Microsoft and Razer have now made that partnership official with Microsoft announcing that it will be enabling mouse and keyboard support on the Xbox One for select Xbox Insiders in the coming weeks. Microsoft notes that with support for the mouse and keyboard at the platform... Read more...
We must wonder if Razer has realized the err of its ways after announcing in the Razer Phone 2 was in the works at its investor's conference.

Razer is best known for its PC gaming peripherals, especially its lineup of mice, but has expanded its portfolio over the years to include several different types of products. One of those is the Razer Phone, an Android phone built specifically for gaming. Razer recently confirmed its working on a Razer Phone 2, and a new Geekbench entry purportedly tips the phone's core specs and performance. Before we get to that, let's recap the current generation Razer Phone's specs. That devices sports a 5.7-inch IGZO display with a delightfully fast 120Hz refresh rate, 2560x1440 resolution, and an adaptive... Read more...
One of the most interesting smartphone launches last year was when Razer stepped into the mobile segment with a device called the Razer Phone.

The confirmation came in Razer’s latest earnings report, and the company said that it is focusing its resources on the development of the new mobile device. Perhaps the most... Read more...

Ask any PC gamer who stays far away from consoles why they don’t play console games and many of them will tell you it’s all about the controls. Once you are used to a mouse and keyboard, gaming with a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One wireless controller on shooters isn’t particularly smooth. Consoles gamers have also long felt that allowing people to play games with a mouse and keyboard gives them an unfair advantage. This hasn't stopped Microsoft from promising to add mouse and keyboard support to the Xbox One console -- Minecraft already has support for a mouse and keyboard. A new... Read more...

If there's one thing that can be said about Razer, it's that that company truly loves gaming (especially on the PC), and of course its gamer customers that lay down the smack with its products. We began to appreciate that passion from the company way back in 2010, when it introduced a human intravenous gaming solution, simply called Venom. Equipped with gold-plated needles to suit five different vein sizes, Venom helped keep the seriously committed gamer energized for up to four days of continuous gaming glory. Who wouldn't feel the temptation? As true as it is that Razer is committed... Read more...
