Razer has finally revealed when its upcoming 5G handheld will go on sale to the public, following the device's reveal last October. The 'Razer Edge' android-based system will hit US store shelves on January 26th, with a few options available to potential buyers.
The top-of-the-line model — which includes said 5G capabilities — retails for $599, while pricing for the Wi-Fi model starts at $399. That might sound like a lot for something that's focusing on cloud gaming above all, but some of the specs here are pretty impressive.
The Razer Edge sports a 6.8" 144hz AMOLED display, and the company isn't holding back on its resolution either. The upcoming handheld is rocking a 2400x1800 screen, so pretty much anything you throw at this thing should look very crisp indeed.
Under the hood, the device is powered by the latest Snapdragon 'G3x Gen 1 Gaming Platform', which Razer says will enable "long gaming sessions playing top AAA titles and native games on the go without having to compromise performance".
Xbox says it is "excited to partner with Razer to bring Xbox Cloud Gaming to its newest handheld console", with this being the latest in a long line of cloud gaming partnerships. Recently, Xbox also teamed up with Logitech to work on its G Cloud console, while the company is also expanding its Samsung TV Xbox Cloud Gaming support.
