We already knew that Razer was working with Verizon and Qualcomm to create a dedicated 5G gaming handheld for cloud gaming. Today, the games maker released the device in a quarter of its tenth annual RazerCon event.

The Razer Edge features a 6-inch AMOLED display with 2400×1080 resolution and 1450Hz refresh rate. The device runs Android 12 or so, has 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB of storage and uses the Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 chipset. The Razer Edge, unlike the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld, has two options: a Wi-Fi-only model and a 5G model.

Razer says the Edge will have AAA-based games, which are compatible with the device such as Android games, pre-installed launchers such as Epic Games Store, remote play apps and cloud gaming services such as Nvidia GeForce Now and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Looking closer at this device, it looks like a smartphone connected to a Razer Kishi. That’s no surprise considering the Razer Edge is a small tablet and comes with a Razer Kishi V2 controller. According to Razer, the controller is designed to give “advanced haptic feedback” as well as a 3.5mm audio port, which is a plus considering the original Kishi and Kishi V2 don’t have a jack. helmet.

Razer didn’t give a firm release date, but said the device will launch in January. If you attend CES 2023, the company has confirmed that the Razer Edge will be available and attendees will be able to familiarize themselves with the device.

The Razer Kishi launches the first device in the United States. It is priced at 399,999 for the Wi-Fi only model, but pricing is yet to be announced for the 5G variant. Although the device isn’t expected for a few months, Razer is accepting pre-order deposits, so you only need to pay five dollars to reserve your device.
