Razer at RazerCon 2022 pulled the curtains back on the Razer Edge, a portable gaming device that not only can stream games but also play them natively. You'll have access to thousands of games, including AAA releases and Android favourites, at launch via pre-installed launchers like Epic Games, cloud streaming services such as Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) and Nvidia GeForce Now or remote play options like Steam Link, Moonlight and Parsec.


The Razer Edge sports a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate at 2400 x 1080 FHD+ resolution. The American-Singaporean gaming equipment manufacturer touts the display provides 87% more pixels than the competition.

Under the hood, the device houses the latest Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 Gaming Platform, featuring a 3Ghz octa-core Kryo CPU with an Adreno GPU, which, as Razer claims, should let you enjoy an optimal on-the-go gaming experience. It also packs 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage that’s expandable up to 2TB via microSD and a 5,000mAh capacity battery.


As for the design, it looks to take a lot of cues from the Snapdragon G3x gaming device that Qualcomm worked on with Razer. That device was first sighted last year as a developer kit meant to attract software makers to build on the relatively new gaming platform.


Other key features include a 5MP front-facing camera that records 1080p video at 60fps, THX Spatial Audio as well as USB Type-C connectivity.

There are two models of the device: a Wi-Fi model and a Verizon dedicated 5G model. The former will be available January 2023 at US$399.99 exclusively via Razer.com and RazerStore locations. The latter, on the other hand, will be available exclusively via Verizon. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.


The Razer Edge will be available in the U.S. first, with pre-orders now being accepted. If you’re based in the country, you can already place a reservation for the Wi-Fi model for a refundable deposit of US$5.


Razer at the event also unveiled the Razer Kaira Pro HyperSpeed and Razer Hammerhead HyperSpeed headsets, the Razer Axon PC wallpaper app and new colourways for some of the brand's most popular peripherals, among others.
