The team behind the Nextbit Robin from 2016 hasn’t been torn apart. It’s hard at work creating the upcoming Razer phone.
Razer will announce its first phone in just a couple weeks, and somehow the company’s kept it hidden for so long. Well, that’s until now. Specifications for Razer’s mobile device surfaced online the day after the launch date was announced. The leaked GFXBench results revealed the phone will ship with high-end specs matching and even besting other flagships on the market today.
As for the design, it’s been rumored that Razer would take a phone from last year and refresh it. Razer purchased Nextbit earlier this year, which was a startup that released just one phone before being acquired. A new leak practically confirms what everyone already thought. Razer will look at the Robin and improve on it for a spiritual successor.
Here’s the alleged Razer phone, courtesy of TechByte:
When the Robin launched almost two years ago, Nextbit pleasantly surprised us with its appearance. The phone wasn’t very curvy. Instead the Robin was proud to be rectangular and have more pronounced edges. It also came in two unique colors. So the mobile industry received a breath of fresh air even though the Robin wasn’t a massive success in terms of sales.
The Razer phone won’t be too different. From the leaked image, we can see that Razer is keeping the shape identical to the Robin. The difference, however, is that Razer’s mobile device will have a two-camera setup as well as the company logo stamped on the back. Razer is all about branding, so the tri-headed snake logo is bigger than what you normally see on flagships.
You should expect a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 with 8GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and two 12MP rear cameras. Those are a few of the specs captured by GFXBench.
The launch event for Razer’s first phone will be held on Wednesday, November 1.
