A few weeks ago Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan revealed a series of updates coming to their gaming focused smartphone, the Razer Phone.
The handset features the world’s first 5.7 inch 2K 120 Hz screen with Ultramotion technology, which syncs the GPU signals with the screen, similar to NVidia’s gsync technology, preventing lagging or screen tearing, has 8 GB of RAM, Qualcomm 835 processor, and faster benchmarks than the Samsung Galaxy S8, is powered by a 4000 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quickcharge 4+ (which lets the phone charge to 85% in only one hour) which can offer up to 7 hours of gaming, 12.5 hours of video and 63.5 hours of music and has 64 GB of storage expandable by microSD card.
It also features dual 12-megapixel cameras with seamless fusion for smooth zooming from wide angle to telephoto with a quick pinch on the display and uses a dual-tone flash.
The update is now live with the following changelog:
- Added 2X zoom button.
- Improved shutter speed in low light and when using HDR.
- Reduced noise and clearer shadows.
- Improved picture quality with better color cast.
- Multiple new image optimizations and improvements.
Razer promised even more camera updates will be coming in the near future.
