Finally, the dual stereo speakers of the device now support Dolby Atmos, allowing for a mobile surround experience that's both louder and more immersive.

For the optics, the Razer Phone 2 has a dual rear camera setup of 12-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.75 wide-angle lens, optical image optimisation (OIS), Dual PDAF and 12-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.6 aperture telephoto lens, Sony IMX Sensors, dual-tone LED flash. Called the Razer Phone 2, the device improves the camera, adds wireless charging, and bumps up the specs across the board compared to its predecessor.

Other key internal components are the 8GB LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB UFS storage, SIM & micro SD slot (up to 1TB), 4,000mAh LiPo battery (for 10hr+ 120Hz refresh screen on time) with Qualcomm Quickcharge 4.0+, wireless fast charging, dual-band 2x2 Wi-Fi, BT 5.0, GSM, CDMA, and LTE connectivity speeds up to 1.2Gbps, and IP67 water resistance.

The new phone is an updated version of the brand's flagship Razer Phone, which was launched previous year. The handset is also both wider and thicker (158.5 x 78.99 x 8.5 mm) than its predecessor (158.5 x 77.7 x 8 mm), so it stands to reason it's heavier as well, though its weight info has yet to be disclosed. You can choose to have the logo light up when you get app notifications or have it display different effects. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack, but Razer bundles a 24-bit DAC dongle with the phone. The new Snapdragon 845 chipset has a new vapor chamber cooling system.

Razer made good on a similar promise with the last phone, so we're expecting the update to actually happen on schedule-it's just a disappointment that it has to be an update at all. Razer also takes pride in the fact that its new handset is the only smartphone on the market that now features Netflix certification for HDR and Dolby Surround 5.1 content.

The Razer Phone 2 will be available from US$799 in mirror black and satin black finishes. The San Francisco, California-based manufacturer hasn't outright referenced its price hike but apparently feels convinced the newer chip, RGB lights, and extra software tweaks and additions are worth the price difference.
