When the Razer Phone was first announced, availability was limited to Western countries, specifically the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Denmark, and Sweden.

In a nod to the company’s Singaporean heritage, though, Razer announced today the device will be available for pre-order in the city-state from November 23. Singapore will be the first market in Asia to get the Razer Phone.

“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,” said co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan in a statement.

The device will be available at local telco Singtel’s booth during the SITEX consumer electronics expo, which runs from November 23 to 26. It will retail for S$1,068 (US$787) if you’re buying it without a contract, placing it in the premium end of Android smartphones. After the expo, Singtel retail stores and its exclusive partners will carry the phone.

Razer’s online store will also be selling the handset in Singapore from December 1 onwards.

The US-headquartered hardware and entertainment company went public last week on the Hong Kong Exchange, raising US$528 million. Its stock climbed 42 percent above its opening price of HK$3.88 (US$0.50) and settled at HK$4.58 at the end of the first day. It’s currently trading at around HK$4.10.
