Razer has done a tremendous job positioning itself as a leader in e-sports and gaming. Now they're ready to make their mark in the highly competitive mobile market with a smartphone of their own. The company has officially confirmed that the Razer Phone will be revealed to the world on November 1st and we've got the leaked specs on this "gaming smartphone."

Given the gaming pedigree that Razer has already established with its brand, we can only expect that the Razer Phone will get a similar kind of gaming focus. Remember the Razer Edge gaming tablet? How about the line of Razer Blade gaming laptops? With more and more people playing more and more graphically intense games on their smartphones, Razer needs to really deliver on this promise.

The leaked specs from by way of a listing on GFXbench. While they naturally don't give any specific indication of what this phone will look like on the outside, the listing does reveal just about everything we'd want to know about the Razer Phone on the inside.

The upcoming smartphone looks like it will go toe-to-toe against other leading flagships. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor will be leading the show, along with Adreno 540 graphics. Perhaps even more notable is that the GFXbench listing shows 7.5GB of memory, leading us to believe that the phone will boast a range-topping 8GB of RAM. That's more than the 6GB you find on the Galaxy Note8 and the 4GB you find on the LG V30.

In terms of storage, the 49GB of available capacity points toward 64GB of internal storage. We also see Android 7.1.1 "Razer Edition," plus a 12MP camera on the back, 8MP camera on the front, a single SIM caard slot, and the usual array of sensors. The display is showing up as a 5.7-inch quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixel) screen with a standard 16:9 aspect ratio, unlike the longer 18:9 (2:1) aspect ratios we're seeing on so many other flagships these days.


When Razer bought Nextbit earlier this year, we knew they had to have big smartphone plans. With the Razer Phone just under three weeks away, we don't have long to wait for the gaming-centric successor to the generally well-received Robin.
