The phone's UltraMotion adaptive refresh technology removes image tearing or lag by synchronizing the GPU and display, which also drives efficient power usage.

Aping the Nextbit Robin design also means there's a big bezel on the top and bottom of the phone with front-firing Dolby Atmos speakers built in. However, there are still few traits that the phone lacks including being water resistant, OLED screen, wireless charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack, but there is a USB C to 3.5mm converter with the phone to overcome it.

The stock software launcher for this phone is Nova Launcher Prime and is now launching with Android 7.1, although an update to Android Oreo is expected for the first quarter of 2018. The attention to sound will allow for a more cinematic mobile movie or gaming experience. The Razer Phone sports dual 12-megapixel cameras on the back, one takes telephoto shots, while the other is used for wide shots, and a 4,000 mAh battery.

As far as gaming applications utilizing these high-end features, Razer established partnerships with several publishers like Square Enix, Tencent, and Bandai Namco. Mr Tan admitted he plays "a ton of games", on smartphones and that they are his go-to device for streaming content.

The Razer Phone will retail for US$699.99 (S$950), with the first wave of countries, such as the United States and select Europe markets, getting it on Nov 17.
