The new device looks nearly identical to the Razer Phone, save for having a slightly revamped front-facing lens and an RGB lighting system installed beneath the rear-facing Razer logo on the back that depicts a triple-headed snake. This has allowed Razer to incorporate Qi wireless charging support, which seems to be a must-have feature these days.

Other key internal components are the 8GB LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB UFS storage, SIM & micro SD slot (up to 1TB), 4,000mAh LiPo battery (for 10hr+ 120Hz refresh screen on time) with Qualcomm Quickcharge 4.0+, wireless fast charging, dual-band 2x2 Wi-Fi, BT 5.0, GSM, CDMA, and LTE connectivity speeds up to 1.2Gbps, and IP67 water resistance.

Measuring at 158.5x78.99x8.5mm, the design is similar to what we saw in the first Razer Phone a year ago. It comes with four remappable multi-function buttons, Razer Mecha-Tactile action buttons, a hair trigger mode and an adjustable phone mount.The Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC is an in-ear headset that draws power for its Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology through the USB-C port on your Razer Phone 2. You can choose to have the logo light up when you get app notifications or have it display different effects. Now it can display images up to 50 per cent brighter than before and sports a Wide Colour Gamut.

On the back of the phone, Razer has completely redesigned the dual-camera system, which now uses Sony camera sensors with optical image stabilisation. Performance will also be improved because of the presence of Razer vapor chamber cooling system that provides thermal cooling.

Unlike the Pixel 3 which comes out with Pie on board, the new Razer Phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

Astronauts make emergency landing after escaping malfunctioning rocket
Russian and USA space officials said that the crew is heading for an emergency landing in Kazakhstan at an unspecified time. NASA and Roscosmos officials say they are launching an investigation into exactly what went wrong with the rocket and why.

The new phone will also continue to have industry-leading features such as its 120hz display.

The Razer Phone 2 has been launched at a price of $799 and it will be available for buying in two colours: a glossy Mirror version and a matte Satin version.

The Phone 2's body sticks with the large-bezeled design of its predecessor, allowing it to deploy a pair of speakers for stereo sound.

Also, it wouldn't be gaming hardware without RGB lighting. While many OEMs discount their previous-generation products after releasing their successors, Razer didn't do so and is actually still prominently featuring the original Razer Phone on its website, going so far as to allow consumers to easily compare the two and decide which one is the "right" fit.
