Razer's phone has a 120Hz screen, available November 17 for $700

The Razer Phone is the ultimate smartphone for gamers, we've gone hands on

The smattering of gamer features and Razer name are really about giving the phone a distinct identity in a sea of competitors more than anything else, and if there's one thing gamers and smartphones enthusiasts both obsess over it's cultivating personal identity through tech. The company began taking orders as soon as CEO Min-Liang Tan announced the phone at an event in London.

It also features cinematic sound, with Dolby Atmos and THX certification, the first phone with this.

The phone doesn't have an audio jack, so you either have to use Bluetooth headphones (Bluetooth 4.2 with AptX) or USB-C earphones.

Pre-orders for the phone will be available here at the official Razer site, and the phone will start rolling out, shipping around November 17 in North America and Europe.

But when the company purchased smartphone manufacturer Nextbit earlier this year, it was only a matter of time before Razer expanded into the mobile market.

Razer is best known for its gaming PCs, but everyone knew what its acquisition of smartphone startup Nextbit meant: the company wanted to get into handsets too.

Mobile fans who want the biggest and baddest device they can get their hands on won't have to wait long, as Razer plans to start shipping the Razer Phone out around November 17 in North America and Europe. The Razer Phone comes equipped with the best system-on-a-chip that Qualcomm has to offer right now, the Snapdragon 835, so it can compete with the rest of the flagship smartphones on the market right now. Moss added that other developers had also been impressed with the phone capabilities, so expect to see more studios unlocking 120Hz versions of their flagship games.

It also has large dual front-facing speakers and a 24 bit DAC for headphones. It comes with Qualcomm Quick charge 4 which will charge the smartphone to 85% in 1 hour.

We'll have to check out the Razer Phone for ourselves before reaching any firm conclusions about what it's like to use such a powerful device to play mobile games.

In short, they're fantastic. they're about the loudest, most immersive speakers I've ever heard on a phone.

It sports two 12 megapixel sensors at the back with one telephoto lens.

According to the product page that British mobile provider 3G United Kingdom posted, the Razer Phone will have some serious power under the hood. Some will love the phone's solid metal, black chassis and pristinely cut sides.

The Razer phone is real, sleek and powerful.

There's little doubt that Razer's Phone will run Android games incredibly well. "Supplied by SHARP, the 5.7" QHD IGZO screen is the first globally available smartphone with a 120Hz refresh rate. Similar to how Samsung has their own Game Launcher, Razer's software lets you configure how you want to play the game by optimizing for battery life or performance.

There is also 64GB of onboard storage that can be further expandable technically up to 2TB via a MicroSD card. Given the specs listed here, I personally can't wait to see what Razer has in store. Razer is releasing 1,337 limited edition versions of the phone that feature the logo in its original iconic green instead.

Razer tries to make a counterargument around a few specific titles coming to Android: Final Fantasy 15, from Square Enix; Shadowgun Legend; Hearthstone; Vainglory; and especially a Chinese MOBA called Honor of Kings, which is coming to the USA as Arena of Valor.
