Razer today officially unveiled the Razer Phone 2, its second generation flagship gaming smartphone. Thanks to the Qualcomm 845 Snapdragon chipset and Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU, the Razer Phone 2 offers up to 30 percent more performance than its predecessor. Performance will also be improved because of the presence of Razer vapor chamber cooling system that provides thermal cooling.
