Razer’s first smartphone might have 8GB of RAM

We're a couple weeks away from Razer unveiling its very first smartphone, but it looks like we may be receiving some historical details today. Phone Radar spotted a list on GFXBench to get a "Razer Phone" that lists a lot of high-end but very plausible details about what can be inside the upcoming phone.

According to the listing, which has since been eliminated, the telephone is going to have a 5.7-inch screen with a 2560 x 1440 resolution -- about the same as the LG G6. It will have a Snapdragon 835 processor and include just one 12-megapixel rear camera, also an 8-megapixel front camera, and 64GB of internal storage.


That is all fairly standard stuff for a flagship smartphone at 2017, however there's one truly standout spec here: the phone will seemingly come with 8GB of RAM. Many flagship Android phones have 4GB of RAM at this time, with some such as 6GB. So this leak suggests that Razer might be about to leap forward.

Razer is supposedly planning to position its mobile as a device for gaming, that makes sense since Razer is a gaming company. Extra RAM should assist with this, but it's by no means a guarantee that this telephone will function better than its competitors. Ultimately, what'll matter is how well the entire package has been optimized.

The telephone will seemingly be running a custom version of Android based in addition to Nougat. That means it will be somewhat out of date once it comes out, but it is not too surprising to hear that there'll be some customizations. Razer's phone comes in the ashes of Nextbit, which assembled some really smart cloud features into the operating system. It is possible we'll see some of those once more here. (It'd be a waste if we didn't!) And I wouldn't be amazed to see Razer construct in certain customized gaming features, also. An announcement for the telephone is planned for November 1st.
