Razer Smartphone leak

Gaming company Razer is developing a mobile device that will be ready by the end of the year

Razer today teased a big event for November 1st, just two days ahead of the release of the iPhone X. The company teased the big unveiling with the tagline "Watch".

Razer has become a very popular brand in gaming world with hardware and computers it produces.

Razer is finally doing something with Nextbit.

A hefty helping of RAM helps a ton when it comes to powering games, but it's by no means the only factor in getting graphically intensive games to run smoothly. But it's dabbled in gaming-centric mobile devices before.
