Razer expected to launch a gaming-centric smartphone at 1 November announcement

The company has posted a teaser of a launch event scheduled for November 1 where it is reported to launch the device. 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. While we still don't much about the mysterious-smartphone, it is certain that the device will target the gaming crowd.

What is certain is that Razer will be adding its own expertise with gaming hardware to the device.

Earlier today, Razer has confirmed to unveil its first smartphone on November 1st.

According to Recode, all of Nextbit's employees made the move to Razer. The device also packs 8GB of RAM which should be good enough for offering seamless gaming experience. A few extra gigabytes of system memory isn't going to make a huge difference in performance which means Razer will need to do something with the form factor or software to really appeal to gamers.

Razer's primary focus may be on gaming laptops and peripherals such as mice, keyboards and headsets.

What can we expect from Razer's smartphone?

A listing has been spotted on GFXBench for the "Razer Phone" which lists some details about the specifications that this handset might possibly have. It seems a given that the phone will run on Android, since that was the operating system that powered the Nextbit Robin. Such a feature could come in handy for gamers who like to load up their mobile device with a lot of different apps. 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.
