Best answer: While the dimensions of the Razer Phone 2 are close enough to that of the original Razer Phone for you to slip it into a case designed for the older device, Razer has centered the main camera hardware on the back fo the Razer Phone 2. So technically yes it will fit, but you won’t be able to use the camera at all.

Close, but no camera
The Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 look similar first glance, and in terms of overall dimensions, the two phones are nearly identical, with the Razer Phone 2 just slightly larger than its predecessor. Yes, I was able to fit the Razer Phone 2 into the Spigen Rugged Armor case for the first Razer Phone, but not without completely covering both the Razer Phone 2 camera and that super cool Chroma logo.
Razer did a lot to overhaul the generally miserable experience that was using the first Razer Phone’s camera. In the process of adding better sensors and image stabilization, they ended up centering the camera hardware on the back of the phone. The result is a much better camera which is good but also requires a new line up of cases for the Razer Phone 2.
Of course, you could probably get away with using a Razer Phone case on the Razer Phone 2 as a temporary fix while you wait for a proper case to arrive — here are our top case picks for Razer Phone 2.
