New Razer Product Coming on May 22: Gaming Phone or Laptop?
Manufacturers are looking for new niches regularly. This is the only way to attract new customers and boost the sales. The latest mainstream in the smartphone market refers to the gaming models. And if the laptop market is full of gaming notebooks, there are only a few devices dubbed as the gaming smartphones. As you remember, the Xiaomi Black Shark and Nubia Red Dev (aka Nubia Red Magic) were announced just recently. Both models look outstanding, but the Xiaomi model is way more powerful due to the Snapdragon 845 chip. Well, it’s clear these smartphones are competing with each other, and the rest is a matter of taste. But there has been another gaming phone launched a bit earlier. The Razer Phone can be considered as the first gaming smartphone of the new era. But what about the next move? On May 22, Razer will hold a conference. What do you think what a product it is going to launch?
Today the manufacturer released a warm-up poster with a mysterious number of 144. Many geeks think it can refer to the countdown. Supposedly, there are left 4 days before the event. So with this number, maybe the company wants to say it will launch a new product in 4 days. But this sounds not plausible. So the second proposition is more trustworthy. According to it, this number refers to the refresh rate of the upcoming model’s screen. At present, the maximum refresh rate for game phones is 120Hz. If Razer launches a new mobile phone with a refresh rate of 144Hz, it will be a new breakthrough. However, this assumption is obviously more reasonable for notebooks.
Seems, Razer will launch a new gaming laptop rather than a new gaming smartphone on May 22. But this doesn’t mean we can’t think of a gaming smartphone as well. At present, Razer’s latest Blade is equipped with the seventh-generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and the GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. It is expected that the new Razer notebook’s configuration will be on top of this.
