Specifically, the company says it is planning the "biggest unveiling" for a new device on that date. Later, CEO Ming-Liang Tan confirmed the existence of a smartphone in an interview to CNBC. These games have never been available for high-end gaming on smartphones, but chances are that Razer might have a compatible, powerful smartphone that can finally let players enjoy these games on such smaller devices.

Teased in a tweet on Twitter with a link to a website, the image definitely shows an individual holding some sort of mobile device with gaming screens in the background. "We realized that a lot of our gamers are also passionate about the mobile gaming market, so we've done a couple of moves", he said talking about the smartphone market and why Razer intends to launch its own handset.

We first heard about Razer making a smartphone back in July, but since then, the rumor mill has quieted down a bit. In January, Razer bought Nextbit, makers of the Nextbit Robin smartphone. Reports suggest that Razer's smartphone will be geared towards gamers and if that's true, more RAM is certainly going to help with that.

According to Recode, all of Nextbit's employees made the move to Razer.

The operating system allegedly runs on a custom version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat, similar to what we'll find in Amazon's upcoming Fire TV.

Hopefully, Razer will have a few more surprises for us apart from what we see here during its reveal event. The Robin was able to automatically move photos and unused apps off your phone and into cloud storage whenever you were running out of capacity on the device.
