Razer buys Nextbit, "unique mobile design and experiences" coming in the future
As part of Razer, Nextbit will operate as an independent unit focusing "on unique mobile design and experiences." The acquisition makes sense because, per Nextbit, the folks at Razer are "rebels like us" and "share our need to push boundaries."
Those concerned about the future of the Nextbit Robin phone (pictured above) should know that this will still be supported. Warranties will be fulfilled for 6 more months from now, while software updates, including security patches, will be rolled out until February 2018. However, the handset is no longer being sold via official channels.
Razer and Nextbit did not say if they have specific plans for new smartphones. Nevertheless, while Razer may not be working on a smartphone of its own, the company certainly looks ready to invest in upcoming Nextbit handsets. We're genuinely looking forward to seeing what will come out of this.
