The Razer Phone, built with gamers in mind, will be released Nov. 17 for $700.
The tech industry has had its fair share of "gaming phones," and though they didn't play out well, this new phone might.
Engadget reports the company is also working with game developers to create custom themes or skins for the phone's interface.
Other tech companies have tried — with little success — to develop gaming-specific smartphones. Notable examples include the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, the first "PlayStation certified smartphone," or Nokia's N-Gage.
Both phones fizzled out of the smartphone market — mainly because of hardware difficulties or poor game sales, which is what the phones were built for.
Considering the rise of mobile gaming, the Razer could evade the failed phones' fates and actually hold a place in both the smartphone and gaming industry. And it's not just because of "Angry Birds" or "Candy Crush."
Games like "Bastian" or "Hearthstone," which were originally released for computers, have gained popularity on mobile devices. Companies like Square Enix are even developing mobile adaptations of popular console games.
The Razer Phone will be available Nov. 17 for around $700.
