Razer CEO Tan Min Liang has mentioned not too long ago that the company will be unveiling a mobile device by the end of 2017. And now, Razer is soon going to be revealing its own smartphone.

Razer is set to launch a gaming-centric mobile device before year-end.

The image used in the tweet shows someone looking down at a smartphone-like device, so we can assume that this is what Razer is planning to launch in November. It could simply be a smartphone but with premium and powerful specs, making it good enough for more media and gaming functionalities.

Ever since Razer acquired Nextbit, it was basically confirmed that a Razer phone was on the cards. It's unclear what mobile processor will power the device, what its screen size and resolution will be or what other special features Razer might include to appeal specifically to gamers. Also, it is appreciable how Razer has managed to prevent the smartphone from appearing in leaks. 2015's Nextbit Robin was marketed as the phone that never runs out of storage thanks to Nextbit's cloud platform, but obviously the device needed to be connected to the internet at all times for it to work.

Razer's primary focus may be on gaming laptops and peripherals such as mice, keyboards and headsets.

We aren't exactly sure how a smartphone is made for hardcore gamers, but it's Razer, so we're assuming rainbow colored LEDs with strobe effects and hardware that can withstand hours of Gamma Lab sweat being poured all over it. You might have heard about the Nextbit Robin which was the first cloud phone where the phone can automatically backup not just photos and videos but also apps on its cloud service in order to free some space on the phone.
