The Razer Phone 2 was recently announced. This is Razer’s latest gaming smartphone and together with the phone, the company has announced several new accessories for it. This includes the Hammerhead USB-C ANC headphones, and also the Raiju Mobile gaming controller.
As you can see from the image, this is a game controller that comes with a dock for your smartphone. The Raiju Mobile is definitely not the first of its kind we’ve seen, and there are plenty of similar options out there for those who want a controller for their phone, but it is made by Razer who is a company known for their gaming accessories and peripherals.
The Raiju Mobile will come with features that one might expect from a game controller. There will also be four remappable buttons, a hair trigger mode, and a mount for their smartphone that will definitely make it a more comfortable experience versus having to use on-screen controls which can sometimes be a bit finnicky.
While presumably the Raiju Mobile will be marketed for the Razer Phone 2, it will work with other Android devices as it relies on a Bluetooth connection. No word on a set release date yet, but it is expected to be made available in Q4 2018 and will be priced at $150.
