The Edge is a portable gaming device. The last time we saw it, it looked terrible. There is a lot that needs to be done with this one. The Edge will be available in two versions, a 5G-ready version and a non-5G version, in January and February of next year. It will be able to support the carrier's networks. People are able to pay $5 to reserve an Edge.
It is intended to be a great device for streaming cloud games. You can stream PC games on the Edge through the Steam Link app. Instead of being an all-in-one handheld like the concept shown off months ago, the Edge is a 6.8-inch tablets that can be removed from. The controller is a more feature-packed version that has a 3.5mm jack. It is only available with the Edge and won't be available separately.
The 6.8-inch FHD Plus screen has a fast 144Hz refresh rate, making it stand out from the crowd. The G3x Gen 1 is a gaming platform that has 8 gigabytes of ram and 128 gigabytes of storage. It is compatible with some of the fastest routers on the market, like Eero's Pro 6E, and it has a built-in microphone.
You can use the front-facing camera on The Edge to stream on twitch while you play. The Edge will have a 5,000mAh battery, so it will likely last a while if you just use it for game streaming.
While the Edge isn't the first of its kind, it'll likely have no issues standing out at $399.99, which is just $50 more than the G Cloud gaming handheld. I think the Edge will be the one to beat when it is released in early 2023 because it will have a powerful screen and a cloud game streaming feature.
Both the Edge 5G and the Edge with wi-fi will be available at the same time through the same retailers.
