Razer's first smartphone to have the RAM of a MacBook Pro

Razer Phone by bit

Razer is launching something Nov 1st (probably a phone)

Razer says it is its "biggest unveiling", which is rather vague but promising at the same time.

A highly valued peripherals manufacturer like Razer developing something as unique as a modern-day smartphone is going to shake a few heads and not necessarily in the right direction.

According to the listing (via GSMArena), the smartphone will sport a 5.7-inch display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.

Razer is supposedly positioning this phone as a device meant for gamers, which would certainly explain the abundance of RAM onboard.

Razer hasn't confirmed that it's a phone the company is preparing to announce, but all signs would point to that. The teaser marks the beginning of something new for Razer, who has been known only for its gaming laptops and hardware. That being said, we will know more about the Razer Phone in the following days as it has started appearing on benchmarks.

The GFXBench listing of the Razer Phone. It also listed a Snapdragon 835 processor, single 12-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera, 64GB of internal storage, and, amazingly, 8GB of RAM. The question for Razer is, beyond specs, what features or optimizations can Razer create to make a phone truly desirable to a mobile gamer?

To put that in perspective, Samsung's S8+ has 6GB of RAM, and Google Pixel 2 XL was just released with 4GB of RAM. Reports that had surfaced earlier in this year has revealed that the upcoming smartphone from Razer will be targeted towards hardcore gamers. However, this version of Nougat will likely run a different type of UI that's custom made by Razer.

Since Razer purchased Nextbit, rumours started swirling across the internet that Razer may be developing some sort of mobile gaming device.
