Gaming hardware manufacturer Razer recently revealed a slate of new flagship products that will be releasing later this year.

Following up on last year’s release of the Razer Phone, Razer announced that the aptly titled Razzer Phone 2 is on its way later this year. The Razer Phone 2 will be priced at $799 and will offer up to 30% more processing power than that of its predecessor. It’s also equipped with rear dual-cameras with a 12 MP wide-angle lens. Wireless charging, a true 120 hz display, extended battery life, and dual front-facing speakers are just some of the other offerings that the Razer Phone 2 has.

Along with the phone, Razer also announced a new model of the Blade 15 gaming laptop. This new base model will sit alongside the advanced model while still filling many needs that both gamers and creatives desire out of their hardware. The 15.6-inch gaming laptop is valued $1,599 and includes a “NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q design graphics card, an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H 6 core processor, 16 GB of upgradable system memory, and a 15.6-inch thin bezel Full HD (1920 x 1080) 60 Hz refresh rate display.” The Razer Blade 15 base model is available for purchase now through select retailers with a Mercury White limited edition version of it going on sale later in the year.

By our estimation, Razer continues to release some of the best gaming hardware and accessories around and both of these new devices sound very promising.
