Razer Phone leaks with monstrous specs including 120Hz display, 4000mAh battery, dual cameras, and more

Razer Phone leaks with monstrous specs including 120Hz display, 4000mAh battery, dual cameras, and more

Razer obviously isn't known for its smartphones. But with the company's recent acquisition of Nextbit, many of us have been eagerly awaiting a potential Razer smartphone of sorts. Just two weeks ago, a picture of the alleged Razer device leaked showing off its dual cameras. Now, a mobile carrier in the UK has leaked a product page for the Razer Phone, and potato photo aside, it's mighty interesting.

Alleged image of upcoming Razer smartphone leaked

Alleged image of upcoming Razer smartphone leaked

All the way back in January, Razer acquired smartphone startup Nextbit for an undisclosed amount. Nextbit's only product to date was the Robin, so the natural assumption was that Razer wanted to get into the smartphone business. The company is expected to announce something big on November 1, and a new leak seems to confirm that a smartphone will be revealed.

Nextbit has ended customer support for the Robin

Nextbit has ended customer support for the Robin

The Nextbit Robin has been popping up for next to nothing on eBay and Amazon lately, which isn't surprising as the company behind the funky little smartphone has been swallowed up by the glowing green maw of Razer. Nextbit has been winding down support for the Robin as it moves on as a Razer subsidiary. Today, support for the Robin is officially ending. Bummer.

TWRP adds support for LeEco Le Pro 3, Android One 4th Gen, Xiaomi Mi 6, and more

TWRP adds support for LeEco Le Pro 3, Android One 4th Gen, Xiaomi Mi 6, and more

As great as LineageOS and other ROMs are, they wouldn't be possible without a custom recovery available for the device. TWRP is usually pretty quick to support new devices, with older phones and tablets being added to the list frequently too. Since our last post, TWRP has added support for 17 more devices, including the LeEco Le Pro 3 and Xiaomi Mi 6.

Razer's new (expensive) power bank charges all the things, even your USB-C laptop

Razer's new (expensive) power bank charges all the things, even your USB-C laptop

Razer, are you okay? You need help? I only ask because this new power bank doesn't have any unnecessary glowing LED accents, which is sort of your thing. This unusually understated battery has a capacity of 12,800mAh, which is on the large side. The real selling point here is that Razer's power bank can fast charge any phone, or even a laptop with USB Type-C.

Razer has shut down the Nextbit community site [Update]

Razer has shut down the Nextbit community site [Update]

It's hard for a startup to get into the competitive world of smartphones, but Nextbit made a go of things for a while. The Robin was a good phone, but the company was acquired by Razer early this year. Nothing much has changed since then, but now the Nextbit community site has been taken offline. It simply redirects to the Razer home page.

Nextbit has been acquired by Razer, promises Robin patches through February 2018

Nextbit has been acquired by Razer, promises Robin patches through February 2018

It's rare to see a new maker come out with a smartphone that's actually competent, but that's what Nextbit did with the Robin in 2015. It wasn't a perfect phone, but it was neat and stylish. There's been no word on what Nextbit's next move was after the Robin, and now we know why. Nextbit has been acquired by Razer. Yes, the maker of all those gamer-oriented keyboards and mice (and other things). The financials of the deal are not available at this time.

Almost A Year Later, Razer's Turret Wireless Keyboard And Mouse Combo Is Finally Available For A Whopping $160

Almost A Year Later, Razer's Turret Wireless Keyboard And Mouse Combo Is Finally Available For A Whopping $160

It wouldn't be fair to call the Razer Forge TV a failure. No, that simply wouldn't be right. If I did that, I'd miss the opportunity to call it a half-baked, poorly-supported product that lags behind even the limited field of Android TV devices like a three-legged dog chasing a nitrous-powered mail truck. Almost a year after its US launch the set-top box is still inexplicably incompatible with Netflix, the promised PC game streaming software feature has disappeared, and even after being injected with the decrepit soul of OUYA the Forge is basically a dead platform. But there's one last thing to report on before we can finally lay it to rest: the Turret.

OUYA Owners Get A $50 Discount On Razer's Forge TV Controller Bundle, Plus $10 Cortex Store Credit

OUYA Owners Get A $50 Discount On Razer's Forge TV Controller Bundle, Plus $10 Cortex Store Credit

The dream of OUYA was not to be. It turns out that overturning a decades-old industry by disrupting it with mobile hardware and open-source software is a tough row to hoe, and adding on a semi-exclusive game market (you know, that thing that consoles do that's already universally hated) wasn't the best opening move. So OUYA floundered in the maturing set-top box market until Razer snapped it up in the hopes of bolstering its own Forge TV, which had been on the market for months and was already known as the worst option in an extremely limited field.

Huh. Maybe they just wanted some company to commiserate with.

Razer's Forge TV Set-Top Box Makes An Ignominious Exit From The Google Store

Razer's Forge TV Set-Top Box Makes An Ignominious Exit From The Google Store

Razer never seemed to really get behind its Android TV device. As far as we can tell, review units for the Forge TV were never sent to any of the tech media (not that we're bitter or anything. Razer. Not at all), and after brutal user reviews were splattered all over the Internet, the device still doesn't support the Android TV version of Netflix. Razer never released the neat-o mouse-and-keyboard combo designed specifically for couch gaming, the company's alternative to NVIDIA's PC game streaming software still hasn't materialized, and there have been no mentions of software updates or even notable game releases since the Forge TV launched in April.
