Gaming company Razer has debuted its first Smartphone dedicated towards gamers! Earlier in the year, the company had purchased a Smartphone company called Nextbit.
Now the question which arises in our minds is that how can a gaming company design a Smartphone that caters to their needs, keeping in mind that games take up a lot of storage space, RAM needs to be plenty, no hanging issues, quality display, and much more.
Well, Razer has tried to make the impossible happen with Razer Smartphone aka Project Cheryl.

According to AnandTech, the Razer Phone is the first smartphone to bear the THX certification. In this case, Razer is offering a THX certified DAC for external audio, which will be available as a USB-C adapter since the Razer phone doesn’t offer a headset jack. Apparently, this is the new normal now, so RIP 3.5mm on phones.
Razer has chosen to ape the camera hardware from the iPhone, with dual 12 MP rear cameras. One offers a f/1.75 wide angle, and the other offers a f/2.6 zoom lens. It offers phase-detection auto-focus and a dual-tone dual-LED flash. The front camera is an 8 MP f/2.0 camera.
