Razer Edge Android Cloud Gaming Device launched for $399
In January 2023, the Edge will launch a WiFi-only model for $399.99. A 5G-ready version will be available through Verizon in early 2023. It will support the carrier‘s sub-6GHz and ultra-wideband networks. The device follows the Steam Deck reservation model. People can pay $5 to reserve an Edge.
Razer Edge will come with 8GB of memory, 128GB storage, 2-way speakers, two digital microphones, and a 5,000mAh lithium battery. It is 263.8g, or 400.8g, when combined with a controller. It measures 259.7×84.5×10.83 mm. The 5G variant will also have sub-6 and 5G support for streaming games outside your home or your network.
These specs are good but not groundbreaking for a mobile device. The 6.8-inch ROG Phone 6 Pro, with its 12-18GB RAM and 700Hz touch sampling, would be the winner. But, When your focus is purely Cloud Gaming, the Razer Edge is half the price and has enough gaming-centric interface. Razer’s device, at least the WiFi version, is cheaper and more specialized.
The Edge features a front-facing camera that allows you to switch between different apps like Zoom or Twitch. Razer said that a 5,000mAh battery would power the Edge. This will last quite a while if it’s used for cloud gaming streaming.
Pricing and Availability
The 5G model will be sold directly through Verizon. You can reserve (opens in new window) the Razer Edge right now if you are in the United States. The Razer Edge is expected to be available in January 2023 with a price tag of $400. We don’t know what it will cost.
Cloud gaming is a Future. But the recent Stadia shutdown has some fear among the gaming developers. But Leading companies like Nvidia GeForce Now and Amazon Luna are still going forward in this process. Since Cloud Gaming is high Internet-consuming, WiFi and 5G models make sense here. Unlike other companies, Razer releases successor phones yearly and provides better after-sales support like OTA. What are your thoughts about Razer Edge? Did you find it helpful for you?
