The Razer Edge is a dedicated handheld device with 5G connectivity

We already knew that Razer was teaming up with Verizon and Qualcomm to make 5G gaming handheld designed for cloud gaming. And today, the gaming peripheral maker officially unveiled the device as part of its RazerCon 2022 event.

The Razer Edge includes a 6.8-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2400×1080 and a refresh rate of 144Hz. The device runs Android 12 OS, has 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB of storage and uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 chipset. Unlike the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld, the Razer Edge offers two configurations: a Wi-Fi only model and a 5G model.

Razer says the Edge will have “thousands of AAA games” that will be compatible with the device, such as Android games, pre-installed launchers like the Epic Games Store, remote gaming apps, and cloud gaming services like Nvidia GeForce Now and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

A closer look at the device, it looks a lot like a smartphone connected to a Razer Kishi. This is no surprise, as the Razer Edge is a small tablet that comes bundled with the Razer Kishi V2 Pro controller. According to Razer, the controller offers “advanced-haptic feedback” in addition to a 3.5mm audio port — a plus over the original Kishi and Kishi V2 the headphone jack is missing.

Razer didn’t give an exact release date, but said the device will launch sometime in January. If you’re attending CES 2023, the company has confirmed that the Razer Edge will be available, and attendees will have the chance to try out the device.

The Razer Kishi will launch in the US first, with retail pricing starting at $399.99 for the Wi-Fi-only model, with a price yet to be announced for the 5G variant. Although the device isn’t due for another few months, Razer is taking deposits for pre-orders, wherever you need them put down $5 to reserve your unit.
