There is also a Verizon version available. Although the suggested retail price is $600, a new contract will let you to purchase it for a short period for $360 ($10 per month for 36 months).

Everything you need to know about Razer Edge!
A Kishi V2 Pro controller is included with the Razer Edge. Although we aren’t 100% certain whether it can make phone calls, it is detachable, making it somewhat of a phone.
The Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 processor, which appears to be based on the Snapdragon 888, powers the Razer Edge. Given that this console features active cooling, it can operate at higher performance levels than a phone. 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage are used with the chipset (expandable with microSD cards up to 2TB).
The 6.8″ AMOLED display’s 2,400 x 1,080px resolution (20:9) and 144Hz refresh rate give this a competitive edge (heh) over devices like the Steam Deck and the Nintendo Switch. The Steam Deck has a 7″ LCD panel for comparison, while the Switch OLED has a 7″ OLED display. However, both only offer 720p resolution and operate at 60Hz. On touch sampling rate, however, there is no information.
The Razer Edge has Wi-Fi 6E connectivity in all of its iterations. In addition to using game streaming services, you may utilise this to stream games from your gaming PC or console. Of course, the chipset is capable of supporting both emulation and native Android gaming. Verizon’s implementation of 5G supports both mmWave and sub-6GHz. Low-latency connections are provided by both 6GHz Wi-Fi and 5G for minimal lag.
The controller features a 3.5 mm headphone connector and Bluetooth 5.2 on board. There are 2-way speakers with THX Spatial Audio and 2 microphones for voice chat if you don’t want to use headphones. A single 5MP front-facing camera ([email protected] video) is also included.
There is a 5,000mAh battery inside, however the charging rate is unknown. The device itself weights 264g, but with the controller attached, the weight rises to 5401g.
