Razer Raiju Mobile is a new gaming controller for Android

Razer Phone 2 officially announced along with a mobile gamepad

Razer up their ante in the smartphone space with Razer Phone 2

Razer today officially unveiled the Razer Phone 2, its second generation flagship gaming smartphone. In the not-too-distant future, we'll also be seeing a Razer Phone 2 with a clear glass back.

The speakers on the device mean the Razer Phone 2 does not deliver an all-screen design similar to the iPhone Xs or its other Android rivals. A hearty 4000 mAh keeps the light on during those long title sessions, and the familiar tri-headed snake logo alone raises the framerate twofold. But the glass is Gorilla Glass 5, an upgrade in durability compared to the GG3 used in the screen in last year's Razer Phone. How much for this wide-eyed gamer's puppy?

Whereas last year's Razer Phone launched at $699, its successor is now $100 more expensive.

The Mi Box S has the same design as the Mi Box 4 sold in China but it comes in black and not white like its Chinese version. The Android TV device has gone live, exclusively with Walmart , with shipping set to begin at the end of the month.

A hefty 8GB of RAM should help the push for high-performance, but the 64GB of onboard storage seems a little trim.

The back of the Razer Phone 2 is also now made of glass, which has allowed the firm to include support for Qi wireless fast-charging for the first time.

Measuring at 158.5x78.99x8.5mm, the design is similar to what we saw in the first Razer Phone past year. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack-just a USB-C port.

Why was the charge dropped? However, an email from Evans from 2015 suggests that the interaction was consensual. His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said in court that he believes Evans lied to the grand jury about what happened.

In a classic Razer flourish, the logo on the back of the new smartphone now lights-up and can be customised to change colors for different types of notifications - flashing blue when you get a Facebook notification, and green for a WhatsApp message, for example. On the front you'll find an 8MP shooter.

All told this will allow the Razer Phone 2 to handle the latest and greatest games easily. The listing, which has since been removed, included images of the handset, as well as some details about its new features, including the presence of RGB lighting and wireless charging.

The biggest letdown is arguably that the Razer Phone 2 is launching with Android 8.1 (with Nova Launcher) rather than Android Pie, though Razer says it is working on an update to Pie that will come later.

The Razer Phone 2 is available for pre-order right now over on Razer.com for customers in the USA, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Another improvement comes in the form of the handset's body that's now IP67-certified for resistance to dust particles and water, whereas the first Razer Phone had no official IP rating.
