Photo of Razer's smartphone leaks; handset features Robin's square-cornered form factor
When gaming hardware company Razer bought Nextbit early this year, the assumption was that Razer intended to produce a smartphone. What else could you think considering that the only product offered by Nextbit was the Robin handset. The Robin's claim to fame was the cloud based storage system that sends apps and photos not opened recently and sends them up to the cloud to open up room on the phone. When you want to use one of these archived apps, they will come down immediately from the cloud and appear on your handset.

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.
