  • The Razer Edge 5G is a handheld gaming console powered by a Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 Gaming Platform, 8GB of memory, and the Verizon 5G network.
  • It has a 6.8-inch, 2400x1080, 144Hz AMOLED™ touchscreen display with 288Hz touch sampling, and uses an exclusive Razer Kishi V2 Pro controller. 
  • It will support Epic Games Store, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForce Now, Steam Link, and Xbox Remote Play.
  • The Razer Edge Wi-Fi is a $400 console with the same specs but no 5G option, and it's available to reserve today though the Razer beta program.
  • The 5G version will sell exclusively through Verizon starting in January 2023.

It's ironic that so many cloud gaming devices are coming out after Stadia died. The Logitech G Cloud Gaming console will be arriving this October, as well as the Razer Edge and Edge 5G, which will allow users to play both cloud games and on-the-go.

The Razer Edge is a 6.8-inch mobile device that is powered by the Snapdragon G3X Gen 1 gaming platform and is designed to enable low-resolution gaming and 10-bit high-definition.

The device has a front-facing camera and a vent on the back for active cooling.

It'll run all of the best games on it, but it's also capable of playing PC games from a nearby computer. There is no word on whether Amazon Luna will support it.


The Edge has a 3.5mm audio port and "Hyper Sense advanced-haptic feedback," which means microswitches in the controller, so you can play them with the bundle.

The Edge will have 8 gigabytes of memory, 128 gigabytes of storage, a 5000mAh battery, and two digital mics. It is 400.8g and weighs 263.8g. You will be able to stream games away from home as well as on your network with the support of theEdge 5G.

The 6.8-inch ROG Phone 6 Pro has a lot of respectable specifications, but it is the only one that is truly ground-breaking. It's more expensive than the Edge and doesn't have a gaming-focused interface, but it's cheaper and more specialized.

The Razer doesn't necessarily need a lot of ram to succeed.

If you live in the U.S., you can reserve the Razer Edge at a price of $400. We don't know how much more the Edge 5G will cost.

The cost of the Edge is the same as the Deck Steam. It will be interesting to see how the Edge's dependence on cloud gaming will be received by the gaming community.
