Min-Liang Tan, Razer CEO, confirmed in an interview with Engadget that the company will not launch any new smartphone models on the market for the time being. After only two generations of the Razer Phone, the U.S. company will now limit its mobile gaming activities to the development of software.
In cooperation with the Chinese publisher Tencent, which distributes hits like PUBG and Fortnite in China, Razer wants to work on creating a new mobile gaming experience. This is to be achieved among other things by 120 FPS on the Smartphone, which are to provide for an absolutely jerk-free play experience. In addition, new standards for I/O are to be developed.
After Razer left the market for gaming smartphones as a pioneer, only its competitors Xiaomi, Nubia, Vivo and Asus now offer devices that are specially optimized for mobile games. Razer’s long-term planning also shows that the company has laid off a large proportion of its former development employees.
