Anyone even remotely connected to the world of gaming has heard of Razer. It’s gaming peripherals and laptops have been responsible for countless headshots and kill streaks. Last year, the company released its first gaming phone after it acquired Nexbit Robin. The phone was launched in the US last year and six months after its launch, Razer CEO Ming-Liang Tan confirmed the phone is coming to India.

The news was revealed in a conversation with Mr. Phone’s editor Ershad Kaleebullah and Anuj Sharma, who was formerly the Head of Product at Lenovo India and moved to Razer’s’ mobile division sparking speculations of the phone coming to India. There, Razer CEO said the company is working on getting the Razer Phone to India. He didn’t mention a timeline of the phone’s release though.

The Razer Phone touts an industry-first 120Hz refresh rate display and powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 coupled with 8GB of RAM and 4,000mAh battery. The firepower inside is adequate for handling high-graphics games like Modern Combat and PubG.  At the back is a 12-megapixel dual camera unit with the secondary sensor offering 2X optical zoom.

Apart from the Razer Phone, Asus and Xiaomi too have launched their gaming phones. The ROG Phone has 3D vapour-chamber cooling systems with AirTrigger touch sensors with a HDR-enabled display. The Xiaomi Blackshark also offers liquid cooling and dedicated button to enter the gaming mode. Asus CEO Jerry Shen said the ROG phone will arrive in India in the next three months.

With the Asus ROG Phone also confirmed to come to India, a new market for gaming smartphones is poised to kick off. Games like PubG Mobile have taken India by storm and Fortnite’s Android launch is just around the corner. Mobile games are evolving at a rapid pace and India’s high growth of mobile users is expected to attract core gaming brands with their game-ready smartphones.
