Pretty much every flagship smartphone costs close to $1,000, especially if we're talking about Apple's iPhone X, which starts at $999. However, Razer's first flagship smartphone is much more affordable, but still relatively expensive. Announced today, the handset is expected to go on sale on November 17.
The expected price tag is set at $699 in the United States, €749 in Europe and £699 in the United Kingdom. Pre-orders are available as we speak and you can order it from Razerzone.com in the US and Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark and Sweden. Customers in the US can also pre-order it from Amazon.com or select Microsoft Store locations.
There is also the 1,337 Special Edition phone that features a green logo (without LEDs) and will be available from Three in Europe and Razerzone in the US and Canada.
