Razer could be inching closer to releasing its own smartphone. At least that seems to be what CEO Tan Min-Liang and Senior VP / GM of Mobile at Razer Tom Moss are hinting at. The company has already confirmed that it’s building a mobile device of some sort, but has been content to let rumours circulate without providing any updates on the project.
As a recap, Razer bought over NextBit in January to bolster its mobile portfolio. Nextbit was the maker of the Robin smartphone, an Android-based device that connects to the cloud for storage.
The hint of Razer’s next big product comes in the form of a photo featuring Tan and Moss. What makes the photo interesting is the device in Tan’s jeans pocket. It is clearly something small that can fit into a pocket and features a prominent Razer logo.
So far there has been no news or leaks on what Razer is doing with the Nextbit team. The company’s route into the smartphone business may be unorthodox, but Razer itself is an unorthodox company to begin with.
We hope that the gaming pedigree that is Razer will be intact with whatever the device that it will be releasing under the mobile division. On the other hand, it could also possibly just be a Razer power bank; because trolling the community isn’t out of the realm of possibility for the company.
