Do you recall when the PC gaming company Razer produced its own smartphone? At this point, the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 are basically just distant memories, and the company is now shutting down its Theme Store for both devices.
Both the original Razer Phone and its follow-up came with a unique Theme Store that let users customize their phone’s user interface (UI) using packs found in the store. With just one click, the device may have a brand-new theme applied to it, complete with new app icons, wallpaper, and Android interface features.
Razer is now closing the Theme Store.
Razer announces on an support page that it will shut down the Theme Store for any remaining Razer Phone or Razer Phone 2 owners on August 24, 2022. The Store will be completely shut down, which means that themes won’t longer be usable in any way. The theme that is now installed on your device will be the only one kept after the store closes, according to Razer.
Unfortunately, you cannot download and save Theme Store themes to your phone. Therefore, just the currently used theme will be kept. Before August 24, 2022, browse the Theme Store to download and install the theme you want to keep.
Razer directs consumers to an library of wallpapers that will always be accessible but doesn’t say whether or not the store’s default theme can be restored once it closes.
When the Theme Store is closed, the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 are effectively theme-free.
This conclusion is not particularly shocking. Both the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 weren’t huge commercial successes, and neither is now on the market.
On November 15, 2017, less than a year after Razer had bought the startup company Nextbit, the first Razer Phone was unveiled. The Razer Phone was built on the Nextbit Robin, and some of its features were carried over into the Razer Phone 2 in 2018. At CES in 2018, Razer unveiled another ambitious concept that utilized the Razer Phone to power a laptop and even included a motorized USB-C port for connection, however the product was never released.
