We’ve come across several leaks about the Razer Phone 2. The handset has been already spotted on Geekbench and Antutu benchmarking databases. Now, leakster extraordinaire Evan Blass aka @evleaks has posted a seemingly authentic render of the upcoming game-focused smartphone, showing off the handset’s front and the back.
Going by the latest render, the Razer Phone 2 will feature a similar design when compared to its predecessor. That said, the company has made a few subtle changes. For instance, it appears that the primary camera unit has been repositioned in the centre of the device rather than on the top left corner found on its predecessor. Though all in all, the Razer Phone 2 will be similar to the original Razer Phone in terms of design along with similar dimensions. It will have the same front-facing speaker grills on the top and bottom.
That said, it appears that the logo on the back of the Razer Phone 2 will glow as it does in Razer laptops. Evan Blass has himself confirmed that the Razer logo on the back of the Razer Phone 2 will be LED-illuminated.
