Razer launched its first gaming smartphone, Razer Phone, in November last year. Last month, the company revealed that it is working on second-generation Razer Phone and it will be launched by the end of 2018 in China. At annual gaming trade show ChinaJoy 2018 in Shanghai, Razer Global vice-president Chen Xiaoping spoke to press about the Razer Phone 2, and now for the first time the handset has been listed at a benchmarking website.
The alleged GeekBench listing of Razer Phone 2 has been spotted by Mysmartprice. The CPU benchmark scores for the Razer Phone 2 is listed as 2,026 points for the single-core test and 8,234 points in the multi-core test.
Going by the Geekbench results and specification of 1.77GHz clock speed, it can be assumed that the Razer Phone 2 will pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC. The RAM is listed to be 8GB and it will run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.
As of now, Qualcomm’s flagship mobile processor is the Snapdragon 845, and going by testing reports of Razer Phone 2, it seems that Razer has no other option because there is no Snapdragon 855 chipset yet.
The original Razer Phone was launched for gaming enthusiast with high-end specifications and desktop gaming technology built-in. It sports 5.72-inch Sharp IGZO screen with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels.
