The Razer Phone 2 comes with 64GB of internal storage plus a microSD card slot. For cameras, the Razer Phone 2 comes with dual cameras, one 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with OIS and one 12-megapixel telephoto.

You also get stereo front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos, USB-C, 4,000 mAh battery with Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+ and Wireless Fast Charging.

The back of the device also has an RGB Illuminated Razer Chroma Logo. It’s also IP67 water and dust resistant and is running Android 8.1.
