IN case you’re not aware, Razer is in the smartphone business now after acquiring majority of the assets of Nextbit Systems Inc., the firm behind the Robin (the phone, not the DC IP — heh!).

In fact, the gaming laptop and peripherals company is scheduled to announce its first smartphone on November 1 — but not without the internet playing spoiler and leaking its specs first. A device listed as Razer Phone has appeared on GFXbench, revealing the key specifications of, well, the Razer phone.

According to the listing, the phone will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. Rumor has it Razer will introduce a custom UI on launch day, possibly with gaming-centric features that position the device as a portable gaming hardware. Which is all but certain at this point, with the GFXbench suggesting a powerhouse of a phone built around a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform.

The Razer Phone is also tipped to have 8GB of RAM — the most you can get today — and will support DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs for rendering high-quality graphics on a (possibly) 5.7-inch display running at 1,440 x 2,560 resolution. It might also include 64GB of storage and 12- and 8-megapixel rear and front cameras.

As with all leaks, take this one with a grain of salt and a hearty dose of skepticism. But wouldn’t it be awesome for Razer to disrupt the market with the perfect phone for gamers?
