Now that Android P is in alpha form, manufacturers are expected to shift their focus to the next version of Google’s mobile OS. Many Android flagship owners are still without Oreo, which is downright disappointing. So before manufacturers jump on Android P, it would be nice if some companies update their devices to last year’s version to prevent further fragmentation of the OS. The Nextbit Robin buyer is doing just that.
Razer jumped the smartphone bandwagon last year when it acquired OEM Nextbit, the company behind the Nextbit Robin smartphone. Just a few months later, Razer Phone was unveiled, and now we have a Special Edition Razer Phone.
Razer entered the Android ecosystem in 2017 with Razer Phone. The smartphone, which runs on Android Nougat, is among the very first to have a 120Hz screen. Razer said the phone would be for “hardcore gamers,” since Razer is a gaming company, and that’s exactly what we got.
Razer, in common with a number of other manufacturers, has not included a 3.5mm headphone jack on their smartphone, the $699 Razer Phone. Critics have shamed Razer for this decision, but Razer’s Chief Executive has gone to Facebook to explain why the company elected to do this.
The gaming centered phone from Razer is now available for $699 USD. Here’s where to get it.
Major gaming equipment vendor, Razer, has announced its first-ever Android smartphone, just as we expected, and it’s optimized for the high-end market and “hardcore mobile gamers.” Some of which we got was known following several rumors, but there were many surprises as well. Here’s everything you need to know.
Razer will host its “biggest unveiling” on November 1. We’re anticipating the announcement of Razer’s first-ever smartphone, one that is said to attract “hardcore gamers.” We could be looking at a super powerful phablet, and it may have just leaked.
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.
