Razer Phone leaked with 120Hz refresh rate IGZO display

Update: the website listing has now been removed, and it’s not clear whether the information which was published was holding text or the actual specs.

Gaming hardware brand Razer is set to enter the smartphone industry with the rumored Razer Phone on November 1, but it seems the handset has made an early appearance on UK retailer 3G’s website, revealing some key specs.

Keeping it simple in terms of aesthetics, the Razer Phone could end up as one of the first few phones to feature a display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

Outside of Sharp phones in Japan, there aren’t any phones featuring this refresh rate. Apple recently launched the new iPad Pro models with 120Hz refresh rate and the results are out there for everyone to see – super smooth animations and an improved user experience when interacting with the screen.

A familiar look

Drawing heavily on what appears to be the Nextbit Robin’s design (a company which Razer purchased earlier this year), the new Razer Phone looks set to come with a meaty 8GB of RAM under the hood if the listing leak is to be believed.

Other Razer Phone specs revealed on the site include a dual camera setup on the back with a 13MP f/2.6 zoom camera along with a 12MP f/1.75 wide-angle camera.

The listing also reveals that the Razer Phone will come with a big 4,000mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+, which is the latest version of Quick Charge and is faster by about 15% compared to the previous iteration.

The 3G listing reveals that the Razer Phone could cost £45 on contract, and about £595 (around $800, AU$1,000) on Pay As You Go.

The final retail pricing is not known yet, but we’ll be reporting live from the Razer Phone launch tomorrow in London to bring you all the details.
