It looks like global gaming hardware maker Razer is planning to bring its gaming-centric smartphone, the Razer Phone to the Indian market. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan confirmed this in a tweet to Mr. Phone editor Ershad Kaleebullah. This was in response to a tweet asking Anuj Sharma, a Razer India executive who recently moved to the company from Lenovo India, about the availability of the device in India. Sharma had tweeted about the 24-bit DAC that comes inside the USB Type-C to 3.5mm converter that the company ships with its Razer Phone.
Razer entered the smartphone market when it launched its first smartphone, the Razer Phone in November last year. The company claimed that the device was optimized for gaming and that it is the first smartphone with a display with 120Hz refresh rate termed “Ultramotion” that is similar to Nvidia’s G-Sync or AMD’s FreeSync as per the claims. However, if the company is planning to launch the Razer Phone in India, it is better that it launches the successor to the original Razer Phone because it makes little sense to launch a flagship smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the year 2018. Especially when Asus India has already confirmed that it will launch its Asus ROG Phone in the coming weeks in the Indian market with Snapdragon 845.

Talking about the specifications of the Razer Phone, it comes with a 5.72-inch QHD display with Gorilla Glass 3 as protection. As mentioned above, the device runs Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 8GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. Users can expand the storage up to 2TB with the help of a microSD card. Razer has added a dual-camera setup with a combination of a 12-megapixel sensor and a 13-megapixel sensor on the back along with an 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture on the front for selfies.
The device is powered by a 4,000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4+ and sports a near-stock Android Oreo 8.1. It comes with Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, and NFC.
