According to Slovakian website TechByte (via GSMArena), the smartphone was acquired by a source from the gaming industry. The smartphone is photographed with its back panel shown. Based on the image, the Razer smartphone sports a dual-camera setup placed at the top-left corner alongside a LED flash. On the right side, the volume rocker is visible. We can also see Razer’s logo which is placed at the center of the rear chassis.
Judging by the design, the smartphone does resemble the Nextbit Robin somehow with the geometrical edges and the camera placement. Razer acquired the short-lived smartphone brand, Nextbit earlier this January. Ever since the acquisition there have been speculations and hints dropped of Razer possibly launching a gaming smartphone.
In terms of specifications, the Razer smartphone will feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD display. The smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor clocked at 2.4GHz, and paired with Adreno 540 GPU. The smartphone is also expected to come with 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. ALSO READ: HP Omen 17 Review: The laptop for gaming on-the-go
