Photo of Razer's smartphone leaks; handset features Robin's square-cornered form factor

Razer has released a teaser revealing that it will unveil its first smartphone on November 1st. Today, an image alleged to be the device surfaced. And with the squared-off corners, you can see that Razer got the inspiration for the design from the Robin.
Just the other day, we told you how the handset had been run through the GFXBench site, giving us a possible look at the specs for the new Razer phone. With the Snapdragon 835 chipset powering the phone, it appears that Razer is not messing around. The SoC features an octa-core 2.4GHz CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 8GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 12MP camera adorns the rear of the device and there is an 8MP selfie snapper in front. Oh, we almost forgot to mention the 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. That works out to a QHD resolution for the screen, with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed.
There is a lot we don't know about the phone, including the name. Previous rumors had the device focused on hardcore gamers (natch!). November 1st will soon be upon us, and we should know all when the phone is unwrapped on that date.

The problem for this device may come from those who are obsessed with having the latest specs. By the time this phone releases, we will be right up against the announcement of devices featuring the next Snapdragon 8XX processor. And we all remember what it was like for the G6 being released just before the S8.

Sorry but is Snapdragon 835 enough for "hardcore" gaming and non-exclusive titles? I was hoping for nvidia hardware and big battery

There's nothing better they could use for a phone at the moment The only phone SoC with a better GPU is the recently released A11, which Apple obviously wouldn't sell to others

I've never known a newer gen chip to be slower than a last gen chip. Are you sure about that? Also, why would you mention the A10X which is exclusive to the iPad? Especially since the A10X would be pushing a higher resolution vs the chips in the iPhone in general?
