Following the Android Pie rollout to the Razer Phone 2 yesterday, the company is now gearing up to give the handset a significant price cut (via GSMArena). Starting tomorrow, March 1, the Razer Phone 2 will be reduced to $499 — $300 off the regular $799 price.
The discount follows just a week after Razer confirmed staff layoffs from its mobile division.
The handset comes with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and a 5.7-inch QHD display with 120Ghz refresh rate. In our Razer Phone 2 review, we praised the gaming phone’s build quality, battery life — while the price now gets a big tick — though it wasn’t one for photographers, and the lack of a headphone jack is worth noting.
