Razer Edge Official: Cloud Gaming Handheld with Snapdragon G3x Gen 1

Logitech is not the only one that’s invested in handheld cloud gaming: Razer recently unveiled its own cloud gaming handheld at RazerCon 2022 with the Edge. Compared to Logitech’s G Cloud Gaming handheld, the Razer Edge uses a Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 processor, and comes with a 6.8-inch 144hz AMOLED display. We don’t have details about the Snapdragon G3x Gen 1, but Razer said that it has a Kryo core that has a 3Ghz clock speed–so performance should be close to a Snapdragon 870.

With a design that reminds us of the Razer Phone 2 (which we last heard back in 2018, with Razer not having any plans for a Razer Phone 3), the Edge comes with a Kishi V2 Pro controller that’s compatible with popular Android and XBox game titles. The controller comes with an array of microswitch buttons, analog triggers, programmable macros, and Razer HyperSense haptics to deliver a top-notch gaming experience.

Keeping the lights on is a 5000mAh battery, and you get 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage with up to 2TB MicroSD expansion regardless if you get the WiFi, Founders Edition, or the 5G version. All three models have stereo speakers, dual microphones, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, along with a headphone jack and USB-C port. The Edge has support for Razer Nexus, and can run PC and Cloud Gaming titles on top of Android and XBox gaming titles.

The WiFi-only model is priced at $400(~Php 23.6k), while the Founder’s Edition–which basically adds the Hammerhead True Wireless (2021) in the bundle, is priced at $500(~Php 29.5k). Razer has yet to reveal the official price of the 5G version that comes with an eSIM.
