Razer Launch its New Edge 5G – The “Ultimate” Handheld Gaming Device

Razer has formally unveiled the Edge 5G, a new upcoming 5G handheld gaming device which they claim to be the ‘ultimate’ in the platform. This groundbreaking collaboration with Verizon will bring to market the world’s first dedicated 5G handheld console equipped with the world’s most advanced display of any gaming handheld, powered by the latest Snapdragon G3xFort Gen 1 Gaming Platform, and 5G network for gaming. It is specifically engineered to provide the best gaming performance while on the go.

Razer Edge 5G Handheld Gaming Device

No longer held back by cords or older-generation Wi-Fi, the Razer Edge 5G features absolute cutting-edge 5G Ultra Wideband connectivity, giving you the option to get off the couch and experience true mobile gaming on the go. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network is like having the power and performance of the best home broadband network right in your pocket.


Thousands of games on one device
From day one, the Razer Edge 5G will have thousands of AAA games compatible with the device, whether it be native Android games and pre-installed launchers like Epic Games, cloud streaming services like Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) and Nvidia GeForce Now, or remote play options offering full access to PC libraries like Steam Link, Moonlight, Parsec, and Xbox. With unlimited access to catalogues of games on the go, the Razer Edge 5G delivers ultimate quality without sacrificing remote accessibility or content availability.

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 2400×1080 FHD+ resolution, providing upwards of 87% more pixels than competitive offerings. AMOLED technology delivers better colour 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 the gameplay at 144 Hz on the Razer Edge, fully leveraging both the fast display and Valve’s extensive catalogue 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 3.5 mm 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.
