Gaming phones have recently seen a revived interest from the phone companies. A lot of credit goes to Razer which kicked off the trend with a powerful Razer Phone last year.

"The Razer Phone 2 features a Snapdragon 845 2.8GHz processor, with a vapor-chamber cooling system that allows heat to spread throughout the phone via a custom vapor chamber which vastly increases the surface area for heat to dissipate, resulting in fewer hot spots. This allows greater performance and stability compared to traditional cooling methods," Razer explains on its website.

The company claims the new display is up to 50% brighter than the previous generation. Other important features of the display include HDR content support and anti-fingerprint protection.
