Razer phone specs overpower established flagships

Ahead of the Razer phone’s unveiling on November 1, many have wondered how the phone will differentiate itself in a crowded market. Razer has already said the device will be focused on gaming and content consumption, but so many other phones already fill that gap.

While it remains to be seen how Razer will cater to its fervent fanbase, at least one spec is already gaining attention. According to GFXBench results, via Phone Radar, the upcoming device will feature 8GB of RAM, outmuscling some of today’s top flagships, including the Google Pixel 2 and Galaxy S8.

Some of the phone’s other specs include a 5.7-inch display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, Snapdragon 835 processor, 12-megapixel camera, and 64GB of internal storage. Pretty standard for a flagship device in 2017, though that 8GB of RAM stands out.

Now, it’ll just be a matter of Razer utilizing those specs as it hones in on its gaming community. Razer seemingly feels confident it has a novel idea to differentiate itself while targeting its core audience. But the device will also have to appeal to a wider audience in order to truly compete against mobile’s juggernauts.

With the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X, and Google Pixel 2 XL in the picture, there isn’t much room to compete—just ask Essential. We’ll find out more about the Razer phone when it’s announced on November 1.
