A few days ago, Razer CEO, Min-Liang Tan has been spotted with a smartphone-like device in his pocket, which has company's logo on its back and this is as far as details go. The device sports a 5.7 Quad HD Display which comes with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the Razer Phone comes powered by 10nm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor clocked at 2.4GHz and Adreno 540 GPU.
It also includes 64GB of internal storage and there is no information about the presence of MicroSD card slot. (Credit: Razer) With Razer planning a November 1 launch event and teasing "our biggest unveiling" in a tweet, most industry watchers assume that a smartphone will take center stage.
We have faith that it will be a smartphone since Razer's acquisition of Nextbit, the company behind the Robin smartphone. On the front, there's said to be a 5.7-inch touchscreen, running at a healthy 2560 x 1440 resolution.
Razer's new smartphone is only expected to launch on November 1, but the leaks have already begun. "With the talent that Nextbit brings to Razer, we look forward to unleashing more disruption and growing our business in new areas". So Razer might just have an advantage over those phones. I'd say Razer Phone isn't worth your collection unless it offers exclusive apps, gaming titles and intractability, like once the Nokia N-gage did and they did it well. And given Razer's expertise in creating gaming devices (including high-end laptops), the phone should appeal to "hardcore gamers". Unless this Razer gaming smartphone features a competitive price tag and exclusive games, the handset might be nothing more than a novelty purchase for consumers who have their entire room decorated for a Razer-themed peripherals delight. However, this version of Nougat will likely run a different type of UI that's custom made by Razer.
