Razer begins teasing November 1 unveiling, first-ever smartphone expected

Earlier this year, Razer, the company well-known for its high-end gaming products, acquired a smartphone maker in that of Nextbit. On Wednesday, Razer began teasing an unveiling to take place on November 1, which will be the company’s “biggest unveiling.” Take your guess.

Razer’s teaser image above gives us a clue at what we can expect on November 1. As you can see, there’s a person in the image who’s looking down at something on a handheld device. The handheld device itself is the clue. That’s right, given that the company has had a few months to work with the knowledge gained from its acquisition of Nextbit, Razer could debut a smartphone designed “for gamers” next month.

Nextbit was the proud maker of the eccentric Robin smartphone, and Razer may be looking to pick up on the success the company had achieved before the two came together in January. Since, we heard a report suggesting that Razer would use Nextbit to produce a high-end mobile device designed for “hardcore gamers.” November 1 looks like it will be the day.

Early signs have pointed towards a large smartphone running a near stock version of Android with high-end internals. These high-end internals could include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB or 8GB of RAM paired with a graphic-intensive capable chipset. If you enjoy playing mobile games, this could be worth holding out for. We can’t wait to see what we get. Sit tight.
