Yesterday we shared a bit of leaked information on Razer’s impending foray into the mobile phone market – but a little later on they made it all official. The Razer phone is indeed coming, and as the leaked specs suggested, the phone will sport a glorious 120hz panel, the first of its kind in a phone.
Say what you like about Razer, but the manufacturer of gaming peripherals, laptops and a whole mess of other stuff has managed to establish its brand across the world. It’s a distinctive brand at that, easily identifiable and managing to create a positive image with most gamers globally. Razer has primarily existed within the gaming space of technology, thanks to some superb headsets, PC mice with ludicrous numbers attached to them and laptops which can double as Borg cubes. The next step for the company? The mobile space, as Razer’s first smartphone has managed to leak out all over the internet.
It’s a pretty good headset for its price, and locally its price (R1299) very nearly aligns with its current US one of $80. If you’re looking for something that offers good quality but no frills, you could do far worse
Most surround sound headsets are really just stereo ones that use software enhancements. Not the Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2, which stuffs five discrete drivers in to each cup to deliver a real 7.1 experience.
Twitch TV, the most dominant online streaming platform, is taking the next crucial step in welcoming sports to the website. While online streaming of sports is nothing new, even to Twitch, their latest venture includes exclusive broadcasting rights for the NBA G League. This includes six games every week.
