Razer Gaming Smartphone to Release by End of 2017

Recently, there have been rumors spreading throughout the media about a Razer gaming smartphone. Reports state that Razer is developing a mobile device that was made specifically for hardcore gamers.

The rumors surfaced when Razer acquired smartphone-maker Nexbit last January. It was also reported last July when Razer disclosed its aim to make an IPO (Initial Public Offering) in Hong Kong this coming October. Last August, Razer terminated its technical support to Nextbit’s smartphone Robin. This indicated that Razer was about to push through with its own branded phone.

Min-Liang Tan, CEO, and co-founder of Razer has recently confirmed the rumors. In an interview with CNBC, he announces that the research and development for the gaming smartphone are already in progress. Tan is hoping that the smartphone would be released in the markets by the end of the year.
