Razer gearing up for a big unveil on November 1st


According to a tweet by Razer, it will be holding its "biggest unveiling" on November 1. And now, Razer is soon going to be revealing its own smartphone. Razer has introduced mobile gaming devices in the past but they were not very successful. While there are several smartphone brands playing to their strengths, Razer with its gaming DNA might offer a true gaming smartphone that can easily handle the graphic intensive games.

Razer is branching out of the gaming market. We don't know what exactly that is but we're betting on a Razer phone after teaming up with 3 and acquiring Nextbit.

Head on over to Razer's website for more information on the event. Razer didn't outline its plans for Nextbit at the time, though analysts widely believed the move signaled Razer's interest in mobile devices. It was a pocket gaming device that ran on Android Lollipop when it launched. Notably, Razer had earlier launched the Razer Edge tablet for gamers. Razer also killed off customer support for the phone, with no new warranties to be issued. The specs are what you'd expect from a flagship device in 2017 but there's one detail that catches the eye.

Razer's first phone supposedly rocks a 5.7-inch screen with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a Qualcomm Adreno 540 graphics chip (same as the Samsung Galaxy S8), and 64GB of storage.

The Robin, although it didn't set cash counters ticking for Nextbit, was a promising device nonetheless. You might have heard about the Nextbit Robin which was the first cloud phone where the phone can automatically backup not just photos and videos but also apps on its cloud service in order to free some space on the phone.
