Razer Revealing First Smartphone On November 1

Razer is continuing its expansion beyond pure gaming products with a smartphone, which will be revealed on November 1. The company is now teasing the unveil event. It shared an image of someone holding a device that appears to be a handset.

It acquired Nextbit, a relatively small smartphone marker, in the beginning of 2017. It appears to be putting that acquisition to work by entering an entirely new hardware market.

Razer says the event will be a "big unveiling." Right now we know next to nothing about the product.
