Is Razer launching its own phone?

  • Gaming company Razer is developing a mobile device that will be ready by the end of the year

It could very well be a tablet/phone/gaming device hybrid, which would make Razer a direct competitor of the Nintendo Switch.

Again in July, a report had claimed Razer is working on a smartphone designed for gaming. The image on the site shows a man, holding what seems like a smartphone enjoying content on the go - which we suspect will be focused on gaming and entertainment.

Would you ever buy (or want) a Razer Smartphone? Of course, time will tell, and we'll know more on November 1st.

The company had previously purchased Nextbit, a smartphone maker known for its Robin phone - a phone optimised for cloud storage. The teaser that was posted up by Razer on its website leaves a whole lot to be speculated and imagined, as the only information to note is its November 1 launch date.

The terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but the investment was significant enough that Hyperloop One will now be called Virgin Hyperloop .


Razer is finally doing something with Nextbit.

There's also been more concrete evidence that Razer is leveraging its Nextbit purchase into a smartphone play. The device also packs 8GB of RAM which should be good enough for offering seamless gaming experience. But it's dabbled in gaming-centric mobile devices before. Notably, Razer had earlier launched the Razer Edge tablet for gamers. It's assumed a new mobile device would tackle those issues, tapping into Nextbit's expertise with phones. 9to5Mac speculates that because this is Razer, a portion of the phone will probably be flanked by customizable LEDs. So, we are not really sure what to expect from the upcoming device.

Hopefully, Razer will have a few more surprises for us apart from what we see here during its reveal event. When we reviewed the Robin past year, we were pretty impressed by its marquee cloud-based storage feature.
