Razer's new smartphone is only expected to launch on Nov. 1, but the leaks have already begun.
According to Phone Radar, a listing has already appeared on GFXBench titled "Razer Phone", that could just very well be the phone we're set to see in a little over two weeks.
According to the listing, the phone will have a 5.7 inch screen with a 2650 x 1440 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 64 GB of internal storage — all pretty standard stuff for a smartphone, except for one standout. It'll also come with 8GB of RAM.
To put that in perspective, Samsung's S8+ has 6GB of RAM, and Google Pixel 2 XL was just released with 4GB of RAM.
So the upcoming Razer should be a lot more adept at handling heavy 3D games and multitasking, going by its specs. This should come as no surprise, given Razer's plan to position its phone as a gaming powerhouse.
We could also see aspects of the Nextbit Robin smartphone incorporated, thanks to Razer's acquisition of the smartphone startup back in January. Some of its hyped features include the ability to manage and offload data in the cloud.
And for those curious to see what the phone will look like, here's the tiniest of sneak peeks, courtesy of Razer SVP Tom Moss who had earlier last week tweeted a photo of him with CEO Tan Min Liang.
Look closely at his pocket. For now, there's no way of verifying the leaked details, so we'll just have to wait till next month.
