The Razer Phone is most likely the most anticipated smartphone among gamers, and for good reason. Razer has made its reputation as being a gaming company by gamers, for gamers. And now it is entering the smartphone space with its first smartphone, the Razer Phone, following its acquisition of Nextbit earlier this year. The Razer Phone is a pretty impressive phone, if you are just looking at the specs. But when you look at the audio and multimedia side, it's a powerhouse. Complete with Dolby Atmos support, and it's even certified by THX.
Razer says that the audio on its smartphone is tuned by Dolby and has Atmos support, which means you are going to get some powerful sound out of this smartphone, which is even more impressive since it already has stereo front-facing speakers. Additionally, there is a 24-bit DAC included, which is certified by THX. Now the DAC isn't actually in the phone, it's part of the USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, since, as you might expect, the Razer Phone does not have a headphone jack. So Razer has worked with two of the biggest names in the industry to bring the best audio quality on the planet to its first smartphone. Which will not only make gamers happy, but those that love watching videos on their smartphone, happy as well.
This is all part of its "cinematic audio". Now Razer could have just stopped with giving users stereo front-facing speakers, something that many companies have gotten away from, in order to get thinner bezels. But Razer did decide to take it a step further here and bring in Dolby as well as THX for making the audio experience even better. Both of these companies tune the speakers you'll find in most movie theaters, so these aren't just run of the mill companies that Razer is working with, it's working with those that really know what they are doing. Which is going to make streaming on Netflix even more impressive. Now Netflix has not yet announced that it will have Dolby Atmos support on the Razer Phone, but that will likely come in the very near future.
