A smartphone packed with PC gaming tech 

Razer upset local fans when the Singapore-founded (but San Francisco-headquartered) company chose to launch its first phone in the US. But they may just make that up to them this week.

Singtel has announced that it will take preorders for the phone at its SITEX 2017 booth from Nov 23. Those who order the phone at the four-day event will get goodies like a Razer Hammerhead Bluetooth Headset worth $169 (for the first 200 customers). Following SITEX, the Razer phone will be available for previews and preorders at Singtel stores and Singtel Exclusive Retailers until its drop date, which is slated to be sometime in early Dec, according to a Razer spokesperson. The Razer online store will stock it from Dec 1 at $1,068 without contract.

In a press release, Razer CEO Tan Min-Liang said: "While we founded Razer in California, US, I'm a Singaporean still and I'm very excited to make Singapore the first country in Asia to release the Razer Phone."
