American consumer electronics firm Razer Inc. has reportedly released the first 5G gaming device at the global level. The Android handheld device dubbed the Razer Edge is Nintendo Switch-style.
The main unit is equipped with a 6.8-inch AMOLED touchscreen display that runs at a 2,400×1080 resolution and a refresh rate of 144Hz. The premium device also has a 144 Hz AMOLED display, Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 chip, and a detachable controller Kishi V2 Pro for Xbox and Android games. The chip has the ability to provide a high frame rate and 2-3x speeds for persistent performance.
During its RazerCon event, the company announced that its Razer Kishi V2 Pro could be used with programmable macros, analog triggers, microswitch buttons, and others. Further, the two parts of the device include a set of detachable modular controls and a main unit with a display and internal hardware.
It is to be noted that the Razer Edge will be available in the market in January 2023. The device is perfect for high-end mobile games such as Apex Legends and cloud gaming services. This is because the solution is equipped with Verizon’s 5G connectivity for enabling cloud gaming.
