A couple of days after we found the GFXbench listing, the Razer Phone is now spotted in a leaked image. On the rear of the device, we can spot the dual camera sensors along with a LED flash. The rear camera bumps out of the body which looks to be a metal surface. Just like the Nextbit Robin, the Razer Phone also looks to come in a rectangular slab design without any curved or rounded edges. While the Nextbit Robin came with a rounded volume rocker and power buttons, the Razer Phones also features similar buttons on the left edge.
There is a huge Razer logo in green color on the rear and we expect the company to make it backlit. Based on the GFXbench listing, the Razer Phone might feature dual 12MP sensors on the rear. However, there is no confirmation whether the company will be opting for the RGB + monochrome or the wide-angle + telephoto camera setup. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details, as we expect more leaks to follow soon.
