When we hear about Razer, we usually think of its sleek line of high-end gaming laptops and gaming accessories.

Earlier today, Razer has confirmed to unveil its first smartphone on November 1st. However, something that we havent associated Razer with just yes is smartphones. In the meantime, you can head over to the website and sign up to receive updates on whatever it is that Razer plans on unveiling.

Along with all the assets of Nextbit, Razer also brought its core management and employees. Also, it is appreciable how Razer has managed to prevent the smartphone from appearing in leaks. It was a pocket gaming device that ran on Android Lollipop when it launched. But it's dabbled in gaming-centric mobile devices before. Reviewing the Razer Edge Pro for Laptop Mag, Sherri Smith praised the tablet's overall performance, but criticized its battery life, lackluster resolution and high price tag. A phone? Well, if previous reports were spot on, we're talking about a phone that is made specifically for "hardcore gamers".

Hopefully, more details will surface as we draw closer to the launch date.

The Robin, although it didn't set cash counters ticking for Nextbit, was a promising device nonetheless.

It's likely the company killed off support for the Robin to be able to concentrate on its own device. Such a feature could come in handy for gamers who like to load up their mobile device with a lot of different apps. The company now seems ready to announce the phone it's been working on since acquiring Nextbit.
