    They did. It is call a Razor Phone. Are you asking for a portable WiFi that is fast but does not have internet access. Or are you asking for a LTE or even a 5G hot spot?

    you're talking about the Razer Phone 1 or 2.
    I know a manufacturer who makes mobile routers. but i can't talk about it on the forum.

    Most phones that support hot spots will work as a portable router. We do this for low bandwidth gaming like Mindcraft with no issues. I also carry a "TP-Link N300" when I travel. It is only 300 Mbps, but it can run a wirelss LAN party pretty well. I mainly us it for hotels that still have an ethernet wire to each room. It is nice to have your own WiFi and not be fighting everyone else. I have also used it camping without internet or cell phone access for gaming. It works. Are you looking for something with more speed?

    I don't have one, but I think it would be fun. That Razer. Comercialises one. By gamers and for gamers. It's true that at the moment I can't buy one

    The question is how will Razer add value vs what is already on the market. Besides Croma, I am not sure what else they can do. Like Apple and others, they do not build WiFi routers. Mainly because it is a very competitive market that demands constant software updates. I mean if you just want a portable WiFi router with a Razer logo on it, just get the phone and turn on the hot spot. Done. Or even spray paint the TP-Link flat black and put a Razer sticker on it.

    Now when 5G get fully rolled out, we might see something like a gaming modem/router. We would be at the mercy of the wireless companies, so do not expect much or being cheap.

    Yes, that's right, you're right, even though I wish I had the opinion of min-liang tan. I have a Razer Phone 1. And they offered Razer stickers. So I could buy a portable wifi router. And stick logo on it.
