Not a phone, but a brand-new Android gaming device, Razer has lifted the lid on its new gaming console called the Razer Edge. Priced at $399.99 USD (which works out to be around $650 AUD) for the Wi-Fi edition, it's a pretty powerful unit. With a 6.8 inch (2400x1080) AMOLED 144Hz screen, the new Qualcomm Snapdragon G3x Gen 1, and Razer Kishi V2 Pro included.

Platform: Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 Gaming Platform
OS: Android 12
Screen: 6.8” FHD+ 2400x1080 AMOLED 144Hz
Memory: 8GB LPDDR5
Battery: 5000mAh
Weight: 263.8g, 400.8g with controller
Storage: 128GB
Dimensions: 259.7 x 84.5 x 10.83mm

“The core concept of every product we put out always boils down to one thing, our ‘For Gamers. By Gamers.’ motto,” said Richard Hashim, Head of Razer’s Mobile & Console Division. “With the Razer Edge, we’ve created the ultimate handheld gaming platform. We designed the Razer Edge to be a true gamer device, capable of supporting gamers’ entire catalogs of AAA games or allowing them to stream endlessly online, taking their gaming experience on the go with near-zero latency.”

In addition to supporting native Androig games the Razer Edge will also support Xbox Cloud Gaming and NVIDIA's GeForce NOW streaming. Plus, Steam Link for streaming games from your PC to the Razer Edge.

Stunning visuals

The Razer Edge delivers uncompromising performance and fidelity starting with its display. The 6.8” AMOLED™ touchscreen display pushes up to a 144hz refresh rate at 2400x1080 FHD+ resolution, providing upwards of 87% more pixels than competitive offerings. AMOLED technology delivers better color contrast with deeper blacks, faster response times, lower temperature performance, and a nearly limitless viewing angle, all while consuming less power than typical LCD displays. AAA games shine to their full potential at home or on the go with this best-in-class display. Steam Link users can enjoy gameplay at 144Hz on the Razer Edge, fully leveraging both the fast display, and Valve's extensive catalog of games.

Console-quality control

Whether playing a touchscreen game or utilizing the fully tactile controls of the Razer Edge 5G, gamers will be in absolute control. The Razer Edge 5G comes bundled with the new Razer Kishi V2 Pro, featuring all the award-winning technologies, customization options and features of the Kishi V2 mobile controller, with two additions: Razer HyperSense advanced-haptic feedback and a 3.5mm audio port. Microswitches in the face buttons and D-pad deliver tactical response and instantaneous actuation in order to yield true console-quality controls on a handheld gaming platform.

Ultimate gaming hardware

Built with gaming in mind with every component, the Razer Edge 5G is engineered to be the ultimate handheld gaming hardware. Starting with the platform, the Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 Gaming Platform is built from the ground up to deliver superior Android gaming performance. The Snapdragon G3x features a 3Ghz octa-core Kryo CPU and an Adreno GPU built for maximum graphics and industry leading performance per watt, so gamers will never have to compromise power for performance in long gaming sessions. Early benchmark testing shows the Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 performing 2-3x speeds of standard mobile platforms like the Snapdragon 720G. The AMOLED display simultaneously is optimized for efficient power-consumption, leading to long hours of gaming on the 5000mAh capacity battery.

Razer Edge Wi-Fi will be available January 2023 at $399.99 USD, with a 5G model also coming. We'll update you on local pricing and availability soon.
