Razer has officially introduced the Razer Edge, a portable Android gaming console primarily designed for streaming games from the cloud via Xbox Cloud Gaming or NVIDIA GeForce Now. In addition, the Razer Edge supports up to 144 frames per second via the Steam Link application when streaming PC games over a local network.
The design of the game console is made in the manner of the Nintendo Switch, with the ability to detach the 6.8-inch tablet from the base with controllers. The latest is the standalone Razer Kishi V2 Pro, which can be used with smartphones and supports haptics, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. This gamepad will not be available separately yet and will only be bundled with the Edge.
The game console tablet itself has a 6.8-inch OLED screen with FHD Plus resolution (2400×1080 pixels), which supports a refresh rate of 144 Hz. The device also received a Qualcomm G3X Gen 1 processor, 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of data storage. The Razer Edge is equipped with Bluetooth 5.2 for connecting headphones and also supports Wi-Fi 6E. The console will be available in a Wi-Fi-only version for $399.99 in January 2023, and a 5G-enabled version from Verizon will follow in early 2023 in the US. This model will support the operator’s ultra-broadband networks up to 6 GHz.
In addition, the Razer Edge is equipped with a front camera, thanks to which you can broadcast on Twitch during the game or hold video meetings on Zoom. Razer also reports that the console will have a 5,000 mAh battery.
