In the company’s latest earnings report, Razer confirmed their plans to release a second generation model of their Razer Phone, hoping to build upon the success of their gaming smartphone.

Now a mobile phone called the Razer Phone 2 has appeared on Geekbench, sporting what appears to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, which replaces the Snapdragon 835 that was used in the original. In this test, the Snapdragon 845 is listed as “ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 6 part 2050 revision 13” an identifier that is used with known Snapdragon 845 powered devices on Geekbench, such as the OnePlus 6.    

The benchmark result is available to view here, revealing slightly higher single-core performance than its predecessor and a significant boost in multi-threaded performance. 

If this score is legitimate, the Razer Phone 2 will offer the same amount of DRAM as its predecessor, 8GB, though at this time the handset’s other specifications remain unclear. The original Razer phone provided users with a 5.7-inch 120Hz 1440p display, a 4,000 mAh battery and Dolby ATMOS support.

The Razer Phone 2 is expected to release later this year, though at this time specifics about the phone remain a mystery. Will the Razer Phone 2 be designed with Razer’s Project Linda concept in mind? Will Razer follow ASUS and create a range of accessories to compete with the ROG Phone?
