The Razer Phone is getting a sibling.

The Razer Phone 2 is coming soon, and it looks a lot like its predecessor.

The second version of the gaming-oriented Razer Phone will apparently be announced Oct. 10, according to this invite that Techhnews just received from the company:

We’ve blacked out the address, since the company probably doesn’t want everyone showing up.

Mind you, it doesn’t actually say Razer Phone 2, but it clearly shows the outline of a phone, and Android Headlines reported the Oct. 10 date for Razer Phone 2 Thursday as well. Oct. 10 would be little less than a year since the original came out, on Nov. 1, 2017.

Razer had previously confirmed a second-gen Razer Phone was coming in a financial report for investors.

The first Razer Phone offered a 120Hz screen, and a pair of loud and clear stereo speakers, according to Techhnews’s review of the device. But other features, like the battery life and camera, didn’t match up to those of the latest iPhone, Samsung Galaxy or Google Pixel. The Razer faces competition from other gaming phones, such as the Asus ROG.

Android Headlines got hold of an image of the new phone yesterday, which looks pretty similar to the original.

It’s rumored the phone will have up to 512GB of storage and will operate using Android 8.1, or Oreo, according to Android Headlines.
