Razer Edge arrives to destroy the Switch and Steam Deck


After a series of teasers, the Razer Edge finally has an official launch date. The new portable console will debut in the US on January 26 in a partnership with Verizon. The console will sell in 5G and Wi-Fi versions, so it’s up to you to decide if you want a console to play with cellular connectivity, or if Wi-Fi is enough. The Razer Edge Wi-Fi will sell for $400. The company’s Founders Edition will bring Razer Hammerhead True Wireless (2021) earbuds for $500.

For now, the Razer Edge 5G will be exclusive to Verizon. This unit will sell for $600, but users can get it for $360 through a contract in which you’ll pay $10 a month for 36 months. You can also buy a 5G smartphone along with the console, and that will drop the Edge’s price to $180.

Razer Edge specifications

The Razer Edge comes as an alternative to the Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck. Of course, there are some limitations. For instance, the new console packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 which is based on the Snapdragon 888. Since it’s a mobile device, you won’t get the same games as Steam Deck natively. The alternative is to use one of the many streaming services that will be available for the portable console.

The Razer Edge has active cooling, ensuring high performance during long gaming sessions. The CPU is paired with up to 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 storage, which is expandable via a microSD card up to 2 TB. The console comes with a Kishi V2 Pro controller and can be detached. One of the big advantages is the gorgeous 6.8-inch AMOLED screen with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels of resolution. It has a 20:9 aspect ratio and offers a 144 Hz refresh rate. Both the Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck have fairly-larger 7-inch screens. The Switch has an OLED, while the Steam Deck has a standard LCD. However, both consoles have only a 720p resolution and run at 60 Hz.

Razer Edge 5G

Gizchina News of the week


A powerhouse for Android gaming, cloud gaming, and emulation

Obviously, you won’t play AAA games natively like the Steam Deck. Also, if you’re a die-hard fan of Nintendo exclusives, then this isn’t for you. Still, you can enjoy streaming services such as Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming or NVIDIA GeForce Now to enjoy a lot of console titles. Moreover, talking about Android gaming, you can run anything on Google Play Store without issues. The Razer Edge is also an excellent device for emulation. There are dozen of emulations of classic consoles for Android, there are even Switch emulators out there.

In terms of connectivity, the Razer Edge is also an excellent choice. It comes with the faster Wi-Fi 6E standard and 5G supports both sub-6Ghz and mmWave. The console has almost no latency in all scenarios to reduce the lag to zero. Moreover, it comes with Bluetooth 5.2 and a 3.5 mm audio jack, allowing you to use wireless or wired earphones. The console also has native audio thanks to 2-way speakers with THX Spatial Audio. There are 2 microphones for voice chat and a 5 MP front-facing camera for video calls (?).

Razer Edge

The Razer Edge draws power from a 5,000 mAh battery. This would be great for a smartphone, but we don’t think it’s much for a handheld console. Razer could have been more generous in capacity, offering 6,000 mAh, 7,000 mAh, or even more. Again, it’s a device that will be used only for demanding tasks that will draw juice. The device weighs 264g without the controller and 540g with the controller.

We expect Razer to give more details about availability across global markets soon. Hopefully, other regions will get both Wi-Fi and 5G versions, and without carrier exclusivity.

    I have to say…..@Alwayz…..not to be rude…but your’e kind of an idiot. I have a razor laptop which was my first “real” gaming capable pc (when plugged into HDMI anyway) and my son now uses it. It’s a BEAST. Now….concerning this new Razer Edge….your’e an idiot. Aside from Red Magic and Asus Rog phones, this will be the first device with a high refresh rate and I have been waiting for A LONG TIME for a device such as this to come out. I mean..I currently use my phone and my Ipad to remotely access my pc via Moonlight and it works GREAT but it would be nice to have a dedicated device that isn’t my phone which I can allocate strictly to Moonlight usage. @Razer….thank you for finally stepping up and bringing to market what nobody else has cared to do so far. For reference…I have a custom loop water cooled self built pc with Intel i91300K and RTX 4090 (Gigabyte OC version) and I am at the frontline of what is current and wanted by hardcore pc gamers. I’m telling you….this device is very much wanted and long awaited.

    Wow… epic fail. Just another Johnny-come-lately with an overzealous journo on the take. Technobabble doesn’t sell these things… familiarity through clever marketing does. This thing has no chance of success.

    I thought I was about to be stuck with thousands of pounds worth of BTC on my laptop because I forgot my password after I wasted 2 BTC in a scam investment site but Michealmurphy at repairman dot com

    was able to unlock it for me in under 12 hours. He also went ahead to recover the 2 BTC with accumulated ROI from the scammer’s wallet. It could not have been a better service.

    Huge relief is an understatement! I would recommend him to all my friends or whoever is in a similar situation. 5+ Stars from me.

    Hello, my name is Krzysztof. In short, I was fooled by a dishonest broker who disappeared with my funds a few months ago. I contacted Hack West and gave him everything he needed to help in recovering my 3.4 BTC and I am glad he recovered my money. Although I was skeptical at first, I can boldly tell the world to contact HACKWEST at WRITEME dot com for all kinds of hacking services. West is always straight forward and ready to answer every question put across to him. Best regards!

    Due to suggestions from some websites, I have had my fair share of cryptocurrency scams. Despite losing a significant amount of money, I was still instructed to transfer further funds in order to unlock my account since, among other things, my balance was not usable. Unfortunately, I couldn’t rely on the cops, so I decided to look for a possible way to get back my money. Luckily I saw a review about SPYWARE CYBER on the Internet. and they were able to help me get my bitcoin. They demonstrated to me how each Bitcoin transaction could be tracked. Your cryptocurrency initially goes to the fake wallet, and then to hide their trails, bitcoins will proceed through a few proxy wallets. However, the blockchain has records of every single transaction. Thus, it is possible to trace your bitcoins to their terminus, which is a bitcoin exchange market, where they can be bought with actual money.
