Razer the gaming centric laptop and computer hardware manufacturer is now planning to make a gaming smartphone, according to a report from Bloomberg.
The company is planning an IPO in Hong Kong later this year that could value its business at $3-5 billion. It will use some of this funds to drive this project.
Earlier this year Razer acquired the smartphone company Nextbit. So this is not a big surprise that they would try to make a smartphone, not to mention a gaming smartphone considering their history of products.
Razer said Nextbit would operate as an independent company at the time of the acquisition but hasn’t said much publicly about it since. A lot of things are yet to be known, like will the smartphone come under the Nextbit or Razer brand.
