The Razer Edge handheld gaming console has been introduced by Razer

This is Razer's portable handheld gaming console called Razer Edge, which is designed for gaming on the go. The Android console looks better than it was when we first saw it in December 2021, which was when we saw it for the first time.

A Wi-Fi version of the Edge is set to become available in January next year for a price of $399, whereas a 5G version will be available later in the year for a price of $499. The trailer: It is equipped with the ability to stream games to the Edge console via Xbox Cloud Gaming, or via Nvidia's GeForce Now service, which offers cloud-based gaming.

With the final version of the Edge, Razer claims that it is possible to stream PC games locally at 144 frames per second using the Steam Link app when using the Edge. It features an Android 12 operating system, a Qualcomm G3X Gen 1 processor, a 6.8-inch touchscreen that can be detached from the controller, and it is powered by Android 12.

The controller that is being shown here is the Kishi V2 Pro, a more advanced version of the controller that has haptic technology as well as a 3.5 mm headphone jack, another great feature. There is no intention to offer this controller separately, at least not at first, and it will only be available as part of a bundle with the Edge, which will probably never be available individually.

The specifications of the detachable tablet make it stand out. It is a 6.8-inch FHD Plus (2,400 x 1,080) OLED screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. In addition to the G3X Gen 1 processor mentioned above, which Qualcomm calls the Gaming Platform, the console also contains 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM to ensure the console runs fast.

In addition, it has 128 GB of internal memory. Besides Bluetooth 5.2 for connecting headphones, it also supports Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, so it can work with some of the fastest routers available today, including Google's Nest Wifi Pro and Eer's Pro 6E routers among others.

It is also equipped with a front-facing camera that can be used to stream on Twitch or for Zoom calls, and it is powered by a 5,000mAh battery that will keep the console running for the whole day. Specification:
