Hours after Samsung unveiled its quadruple camera-toting Galaxy A9, Razer announced the second-generation of its gaming-focused smartphone, the unimaginatively branded, Razer Phone 2.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset - and now there's a new contender with Razer's Phone 2, an update on the company's pioneering gaming phone that came out in 2017. Yes, it's the creatively named Razer Phone 2. There is a 64GB storage model that has a "classy mirror back" and a 128GB storage variant with "rugged satin finish".

Talking about specifications, the Razer Phone 2 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor - which has become a top-notch preference for flagship phones, 8GB RAM, a 5.7-inch 120Hz 2560x1440p IPS LCD display coming at a brightness of up to 645 nits, and a 4000mAh battery to power the entire thing. But more importantly for gamers, it's claimed to be one of only two phones (the other being the first Razer Phone) with a true 120Hz display, as it features both a 120Hz refresh rate and 120Hz touch sensitivity.

Along with the display quality and gaming performance, Razer is also talking up the Phone 2's camera setup.

The 845 Snapdragon coupled with the Adreno 630 GPU will make short work of the most demanding apps, with the Razer vapour chamber cooling system providing excellent cooling utility that hasn't been found on a smartphone before.

Clearer and louder dual front-facing speakers, improved from the original Razer Phone.
