Razer has announced that it is going to announce something exciting on November 1. And we know for sure it’s going to be a handheld device, which, of course, hits at a smartphone. And knowing Razer, that device is going to be one hell of a beast.

Razer currently makes a lot of gaming-focused products, a lot except a smartphone. Read what the CEO of Razer said back in June,

Right now I don’t see any mobile device or software platform that really fulfills the needs of the [mobile] gamer … there is a huge opportunity to disrupt the mobile market.

I fully agree with what he said. The last time someone launched a gaming-oriented smartphone was Sony with the Xperia Play. However good that phone was, it never got a sequel. There was also the Nvidia Shield, which was more like a tablet than a smartphone.

Razer announced the news with a tweeted quote “WATCH for our biggest unveiling… ” with a picture of a person using a handheld device which definitely isn’t another tablet since it looks a little too small to be a tablet.

On a side note, Razer did acquire the Nexbit System Inc – a smartphone company which had launched the popular Nextbit Robin. We’ll have to see how much of an influence that will create for their new product.

The alleged smartphone will surely deliver a hardcore gaming experience its buyers. And going by their approach to the gaming laptop platform, we can’t help but hope for something really exciting.
