After all, the company has made both laptops and PC accessories geared towards gaming - why wouldn't a phone also reflect that gaming expertise?
Today, a teaser has gone live, which confirms Razer plans to announce its first smartphone.
Right now I dont see any mobile device or software platform that really fulfills the needs of the [mobile] gamer. there is a huge opportunity to disrupt the mobile market.
"One of the most hotly rumored things about Razer is that we're coming up with a mobile device".
Earlier claims undoubtedly point to a gaming mobile device by Razer, which could possibly mean an Android powered Razer gaming smartphone. Razer's CEO, Tan Min-Liang, said that the project has been in development for years, and he is excited to reveal all to the world soon. We look forward how Razer will integrate Nextbit's DNA into its smartphone, when it launches on 1st November.
As far as features go, we will probably be expecting front firing speakers at the very least, along with longer than usual battery life and Razer's own gaming services pre-installed onto the device.
A Razer-branded smartphone could be on the way, naturally.
