Razer Teases Its First Cloud Gaming Handheld

Hot on the heels of Logitech’s G Cloud announcement, Razer has just introduced its own cloud gaming handheld. A short video of the Razer Edge 5G appeared during Verizon’s keynote address at Mobile World Congress Las Vegas, with additional details scheduled for October 15 during RazerCon.

That’s how it is; Razer and Verizon teamed up to build a portable cloud gaming console. And they got help from Qualcomm. The Razer Edge 5G runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon G3x platform, which was shown using a Razer handheld concept last year.

Details about the Razer Edge 5G such as specifications, features, design, and pricing are unknown. But it will run Android and is compatible with services like Xbox Cloud Gaming. We also know that the console has some sort of fancy side buttons (they’re highlighted in the teaser video).

We can also infer a few things about the console. It uses the Snapdragon G3x platform, so in theory it should be able to run Android games locally. It can also support 4K video output and work with augmented reality glasses (two things that are mentioned in Qualcomm’s 2021 G3x report).

Verizon is presumably involved in this project due to its mmWave 5G infrastructure. Verizon is in a unique position to market and sell a cloud gaming handheld, as mmWave 5G offers faster speeds than any other mobile connection (but due to its short range, mmWave 5G is hard to find outside of the big cities).

We’ll get a better look at the Razer Edge 5G on October 15 during RazerCon. I guess the console looks like Razer’s Kishi controller for mobile phones.
