Razer’s First Ever Smartphone All Set for Launch Next Month

October 13, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Razer’s acquisition of NetBit has opened up all the possibility of the peripheral manufacturers to pull out its first ever smartphone. Things are looking more excited now with the company teasing a launch event that further solidifies the belief.

Razer’s event is scheduled for November 1, and the teaser shows off a guy playing around with a smartphone. The teaser barely reveals anything else, but thanks now to a GFXBench benchmarking that we can assume what’s going to be inside the new device.

According to the listing, the Razer smartphone will be featuring a 5.7-inch touchscreen with Quad HD resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. An edge-to-edge display seems to be out of the equation with that aspect ratio. Yet, the device is worth waiting for going by the other specs.

Beneath the display, it will be a Qualcomm octa-core processor that would power up the device, and going by the clock-speeds, we can safely assume that to be the Snapdragon 835 SoC. What keeps us more amused is a RAM of 7.5GB, which pretty much reveals that there’s an extra focus on gaming. Alongside, it will have a storage of 64 GB.

On the rear side, the device will feature a camera of 11MP, and it will be accompanied by a 7MP front cam. It’s also possible that the device would get bundled with a Razer Edition Android OS.

There’s still no confirmation from the side of the company, and the current listing could also be just another device in the offing than the one displayed in the teaser. The possibility of the one teased being a handheld console cannot be ruled out either. But sure, Razer will definitely wasting no time to turn its acquisition of NetBit into something fruitful.
