As you might have heard by now, Razer is looking to enter the mobile space by launching a smartphone of their own, and sure enough it looks like the Razer Phone has been made official. However unlike most Android smartphones, it seems that Razer is gearing up this phone to be aimed at mobile entertainment and gamers.

This is thanks to the use of a 120Hz “Ultramotion” display and Dolby Atmos audio technology which will be some of the hardware features of the handset. We’re also looking at a 5.7-inch QHD IGZO LCD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and it will also come with a whopping 8GB of RAM, which is rare amongst smartphones these days (4-6GB seems to be the standard these days).

The Razer Phone will also pack dual 12MP rear-facing cameras on the back and it will also feature a 4,000mAh battery that should keep you going all day, but your mileage may vary depending on how you use it. In addition to what appears to be your typical flagship hardware specs, Razer also announced partnerships with various developers/publishers who will be releasing games optimized for the handset and its display. There will also be a Razer theme store.

As for pricing and availability, we’re looking at a price tag of $700 and the Razer Phone is expected to be released on the 17th of November, with pre-orders currently being accepted on its website.
