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.
Effective August 1 2017, support is no more for Nexbit’s Robin smartphone. Chat and call support is finished, though outstanding RMA tickets will be handled via email. It’s sad news, indeed.
Early this year, Razer surprised us all with its acquisition of Nextbit, the maker of the standout Robin smartphone. Razer has now reported to sources an IPO filing in Hong Kong, and that they are working on a smartphone thanks to the mobile division of Nextbit.
Nextbit is a promising company, but unfortunately its journey being independent has concluded. Razer, a computer hardware company, has bought out Nextbit, and to make matters upsetting, it seems that many Nextbit products will be no more after this year.
