It has been rumored for months now that Razer has been thinking about developing a smartphone. Razer isn’t a company that makes smartphones, it’s known for its great gaming peripherals and computing products. However, it acquired handset maker Nextbit earlier this year and that’s when the rumors started. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan recently confirmed that the rumors were true. Today, he gave the world a cheeky look at Razer’s first smartphone.

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan confirmed last month that Razer has been working on a mobile device “specifically geared toward gamers and entertainment.”

He didn’t go into the specifics so it’s unclear what sort of specs and features this device might have. He did say that Razer is hoping to launch this device by the end of this year.

As for the cheeky look at the device, the senior vice president / GM of Mobile at Razer Tom Moss tweeted out a picture with his CEO. Moss was previously at Nextbit. You can clearly see a device poking out from Tan’s pocket and the Razer logo can also be clearly seen.

This seems to be too staged to be considered an accidental glimpse so hats off to the Razer CEO for sparking up conversation yet again about Razer’s first ever smartphone. Now if only the company would get on with it and tell us what the handset is all about.
