It was only a few days ago that Razer’s latest financial report confirmed to investors that the sequel to the Razer Phone is indeed on its way. According to the earnings release, the company is “focusing its resources into the development of the second-generation Razer Phone and accompanying software releases.”
Now, multiple reports say the Razer Phone 2 has been spotted on the Antutu Benchmark and Geekbench databases, hinting at the phone’s internals, and that it may well be nearing a release. And interestingly, both listings identify the phone as the Razer Phone 2.
Antutu Benchmark has encoded a single-run score of 283,397 points for the device, which features a 2,560 x 1,440 screen of unknown size and runs Android 8.1 Oreo on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 mated to 8GB RAM, Adreno 630 graphics, and a whopping 512GB of storage.
Geekbench reports Android 8.1 on a octa-core Qualcomm processor (likely a Snapdragon 845) paired with 8GB RAM as well. The results uploaded on September 6, 2018 registered scores of 2,026 and 8,234 points in single- and multi-core tests, respectively.
All these numbers are in line with other Snapdragon 845-powered phones like the OPPO Find X, Vivo NEX, Xiaomi Mi 8, Pocophone F1, and ASUS ROG Phone, which has an 8GB RAM and 512GB ROM configuration, too.
The Razer Phone 2 is expected to be unveiled in the last quarter of this year, just like its predecessor. The original Razer Phone launched in December 2017 to a lot of positive feedback over its gaming-focused hardware and extras.
In the wake of the Razer Phone 2 leaks, the company has reduced the price of the original to $400 (around P21,558) from $700 (P37,727), which is an awesome deal for one of the smoothest phones anyone could ask for.
