Razer will announce a 'mobile device' later this year

Road to the Razer Phone CEO tips 2017 release IPO war chest

Quite interestingly, Razer has been speculated to be working on mobile gaming device since a year ago.

Interviewing Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, CNBC is told that the manufacturer is working on a mobile device, but the actual term is somewhat ambiguous because a mobile device can also mean a handheld gaming computer.

According to Tan, Razer's upcoming mobile device will focus on gaming and entertainment. Unfortunately, he refused to shed light on the phone's specifications and features. Doesn't it remind you of something Nintendo released earlier this year?

Razer has bought various entertainment industry companies such as THX, video game publisher Ouya and smartphone developer Nextbit. Razer tablet? Or something else entirely?

The Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc. has had 2 insider trades in the last 3 months, including 0 open market buys and 2 sells. The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a widely used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time.

In 2013, the company introduced the Razer Edge, a mobile gaming tablet that could be compared to the iPad.

Naturally, the rumor mill began suggesting Razer will launch a gaming smartphone soon. I'm willing to give him an extra two weeks (so generous, I know), but if we don't hear about anything by the time CES 2018 wraps up, it might be time to put to rest your dreams of a Razer version of the Switch. After the acquisition, Nextbit is a working as an independent company. The report had claimed that the company is raising funds for its upcoming gaming smartphone.

It should be kept in mind that Razer's CEO didn't mention the word "smartphone" to describe its upcoming gaming smartphone. The device has been available for buying in the US with a price tag of $299. Hence, the mysterious mobile gaming device is also speculated as a competitor product for Switch.

"One of the most hotly rumored things about Razer is that we're coming up with a mobile device". Share us your thoughts by adding your comments.
