Second-gen Razer Phone confirmed as 'in development', no specifics revealed
While Razer stayed mum on the sales figures of its rookie mobile device effort in announcing interim financial results for the six months ended June 30, the “leading global lifestyle brand for gamers” is apparently looking to focus its resources squarely “into the development of the second generation Razer Phone.”
No words on exactly when to expect this product to see daylight, but earlier reports hinted at a commercial debut by the end of 2018. The original Nextbit Robin-inspired Razer Phone was both unveiled and released in November last year, so we may still need to wait a couple of months for the sequel’s introduction.
Interestingly, Razer took the time in its latest financial report to not only confirm the impending arrival of a “second generation” phone, but also highlight the first-gen was “released in a limited run”, garnering “very positive reviews internationally.”
That might suggest the Razer Phone 2 (which is an unconfirmed name, by the way) will be rolled out in bigger numbers, targeting a wider audience, as well as the same “very positive” critical reception as its forerunner.
Razer is also (vaguely) teasing “accompanying software releases”, aiming to extend its “software and services from PC into the mobile market.” We genuinely have no idea what that means, but we know we’d love to see that crazy Project Linda concept from back at CES in January take shape commercially. Fingers crossed, y’all!
