Razer has sent out invites for an event on October 10. The invite features the iconic three-headed snake branding which is also on the back of Razer Phone.
Razer Phone 2 is expected to be released in more markets unlike the original phone. The phone is likely to be released in India as well. Razer CEO Ming-Liang Tang earlier this year had announced that the gaming smartphone will be launched in India as well.
