Razer, the peripheral and laptop manufacturer, was rumoured to be working on a smartphone targeted at players for quite a long time. If a brand new online listing is to be believed then the Razer Phone has been spotted on UK-based website. The smartphone dubbed Razer Phone is listed by 3G. Co.uk, an affiliate of Three UK, which states “This item is currently out of stock.”

A smartphone in Razer shouldn’t come as a surpriseas the firm acquired smartphone manufacturer Nextbit earlier this season and it might be finally prepared with its first offering after all.

According to the listing, which has minimal specifications, the Razer Phone will game a 5.72-inch IGZO display with 120Hz refresh rate which clears that the device is targeted at players. For audio, the handset is listed to come with Dolby Atmos sound and packs double front-facing speakers and amplifiers which is certified by THX. For camera lovers, the device will pack dual camera setup at the back, and will feature 12-megapixel primary sensor combined with 13-megapixel secondary sensor. In terms of batterylife, it is said to pack 4000mAh battery and comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ for quick charging service. It is also said to come with 8GB of RAM and support 4G. The 3G. Co.uk listing was first spottedby a Reddit user.

Obviously, as with all rumours and leaks, we advise readers to take the above information concerning the Razer Phone with a pinch of salt, as Razer has yet to make any announcement about its new smartphone and the online listing cannot be independently verified.

This will not be the first time a company has taken a stab at making a phone for gamers. In earlier times Nokia tried doing this with the N-gage, Sony attempted this with all the Xperia Play, and even Indian brand Mitashi launched the Mitashi Play Thunderbolt smartphone almost three decades ago.
