The Razer phone 2 was announced to the gaming world just over a month ago and now it has arrived at the Australian shores courtesy Optus, a leading Telecom operator in the island nation down-under. It is worth remembering that the Razer Phone 2 is the successor to Razer Phone which, arguably, spearheaded the creation of the gaming smartphone market.
This gaming phone comes with the heavy-duty and gaming friendly Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB RAM, and vapor chamber cooling technology that ensures your phone doesn’t overheat despite the prolonged gaming. It is also IP67 water and dust resistance certified, ensuring that the gaming doesn’t stop even in inclement weather!

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the phone is the Chroma lighting that’s embedded in the Razer logo on the rear panel of the device. It enables you to change colors and use wave effects while gaming or whenever you receive a notification. The screen is also reportedly 50% brighter, making gaming a really serious affair.
Finally, gaming enthusiasts in Australia can treat themselves to the phone. However, you need to be an existing Optus customer or purchase a new line to own the device. Prices start from AUD $90/month for 24 months which includes the cost of the phone as well as the plan.
