There are many people who, due to different circumstances, spend many hours on public transport. Those dead moments are spent looking at the phone, since there is not much else to do. To meet the needs of users, Razer has designed a powerful and truly versatile portable console.

One of the main strengths of this console is that we are no longer going to depend on a WiFi connection. The Razer Edge is the first portable console that offers a 5G connection , as if it were a smartphone. Thanks to this we can access thousands of Triple A games without major problems.

This console is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon G3x Gen1 Gaming processor . This ARM architecture processor is Qualcomm’s first developed exclusively for video games. It is based on eight Kryo cores running at up to 3.0 GHz and optimized Adreno graphics to deliver great gaming performance.

The console offers us access to Triple A games, whether they are Android games or from other points. It has the Epic Games Store launcher natively, so we can play Fortnite, among others. We will also have access to Xbox Cloud Gaming and NVIDIA GeForce Now cloud services. In case all this is not enough, it also offers access to Steam Link.

This portable console makes use of a 6.8-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2400 × 1080 pixels with a refresh rate of 144 Hz . We say that this console offers up to 87% more than other portable consoles on the market. Also, being based on AMOLED technology, we have purer blacks, great refresh time and great performance at low temperatures.

The screen is completely touchscreen, but to offer more possibilities, they have integrated the Razer Kishi V2 Pro controller. Two quite interesting elements are added. The first is Razer HperSense, which is Razer’s haptic technology and a 3.5mm jack connector.
