Going by the listing spotted by Slashleak, the smartphone will come with a design similar to that of the Nextbit Robin. In terms of specifications, the website shows the Razer Phone will sport a 5.72-inch IGZO display. The display is something we have noticed Razer using for its gaming laptops previously. The listing also reveals that the phone will come with 120Hz refresh rate, something that is rarely found on any smartphone display. While the chipset is not listed, previous rumors suggest that the phone is expected to run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. It will be paired with 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. Also, given the Nextbit acquisition, it may feature some cloud-based feature too. Also Read - Samsung brings Google Assistant support for 2020 Smart TV lineup
Further, the listing on the site mentions that the smartphone might come with dual front-facing Dolby ATMOS speakers with THX amplifiers. On the camera front, the smartphone will feature a dual-camera setup on the back with a 13-megapixel f/2.6 zoom camera along with a 12-megapixel f/1.75 wide-angle camera. There is no mention of the front camera. Armed with a 4,000mAh lithium-ion battery, it will also support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+.
Going by previous leaks, the Razer smartphone sports a dual-camera setup placed at the top-left corner alongside a LED flash. We can also see Razer’s logo, which is placed at the center of the rear chassis. However, rumors from the past also suggest that the smartphone could possibly house an 8-megapixel selfies camera. On the software front, the smartphone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat which would be ‘Android Razer Edition’.
