Razer Phone 2 Launch Set for October 10, Company Sends Invites

While the Razer Phone 2 price is not known, its predecessor started at $699 in the US

Highlights
  • The Razer Phone's second-gen model will be launched in the US
  • Specifications have not been revealed
  • Pricing and availability are not out yet

Gaming brand Razer has announced that it will be unveiling its second-generation flagship smartphone at a launch event slated for October 10. Successor to last year's Razer Phone does not have an official name yet and the teaser just mentions the phrase "Flagship // Gaming", not revealing any other details around the upcoming Razer Phone 2 smartphone. Coincidentally or deliberately, Google is hosting its Pixel range refresh event just one day before this launch, that is, on October 9 in New York. While the Razer Phone 2 price is not known, its predecessor started at $699 (roughly Rs. 50,800) in the US. It is likely that the gaming company might give it the same price tag, however we shall have to wait till next month to get clarity of pricing and availability details. The invites were sent out to media outlets, as reported by Engadget.

This development comes right after the company had confirmed in a financial call that its next flagship, presumably the Razer Phone 2, would arrive soon. The company had also expressed interest in extending its PC services to the mobile division. These include services like Razer Game Store and the zGold wallet and rewards platform that could soon make their way to the mobile platform with the Razer Phone 2. Other features could include the Snapdragon 845 SoC and a 120Hz display. The company could also launch certain accessories to go with the phone, however this is based on pure speculation. Let's recap the specifications of last year's Razer Phone.
