Did you like the first Razer Phone? Did you think they really changed the game (pun totally intended)? Well, a lot has changed in the meantime, including the release of a special gold edition. Now, we’re due for a successor and the company has now officially confirmed the Razer Phone 2 is most definitely in the works.

With the noted exception of devices like the old Nokia N-Gage and Sony Xperia Play, there hasn’t been much in terms of smartphones that are designed specifically for gaming. People complain that most phones look almost the same these days with rounded corners, (almost) bezel-free displays (with notches), and dual camera configurations thinly sandwiched between panels of glass.

The first Razer Phone dared to be different with hard edges and a block design, plus very obvious upper and lower bezels for the front-facing stereo speakers. And that high refresh rate. Let’s not forget about the high refresh rate.

So, what can we expect the second time around? Unsurprisingly, Razer isn’t exactly divulging all the details surrounding the Razer Phone 2 just yet. As part of the company’s earnings report, though, they do indicate that they’ve been “very pleased with the success of its first generation Razer Phone.” The Razer Phone 2 will most likely get a Snapdragon 845 and perhaps 8 GB of RAM.


And even though the blocky design and chunky bezels set the first phone apart from the crowd, Razer is probably working on thinning out those bezels too. Given the November launch window of the original, we can hope for the Razer Phone 2 to show up in time for the holidays too. How it stacks up against the Asus ROG Phone (and its cheaper cousin) will be very interesting to follow.
