After announcing its first gaming handheld, the ‘Edge’ at RazerCon 2022, the company has finally revealed the full spec sheet, availability, and pricing details for the gaming handheld.
The handheld will be available in two variants — 5G and WiFi. We now know that the WiFi variant will be available for $399.99 exclusively on Razer’s website in the US starting January 26.
There’s also a founder’s edition, coming in at $499.99. It’s identical in specs but comes with the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds. The 5G variant is made in partnership with Verizon, and the carrier is expected to announce the price and availability dates on its website soon.
Razer’s Edge features a 6.8-inch AMOLED display running at 144Hz and 2400 x 1800 resolution. The tablet-like device is powered by the Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 and features 8GB LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB UFS 3.1 storage and expandable microSD card support up to 2TB.
If that list of specifications sounds more similar to the Logitech G Cloud rather than the Steam Deck, that’s because the Edge is an Android-based cloud gaming device, much like the G Cloud.
That said, while the G Cloud was a complete handheld with integrated controllers, Razer has gone down a different path and has only focussed on the tablet-like device, letting its Kishi Pro V2 controllers handle the rest.
