The device features a 6.9-inch AMOLED touchscreen with FHD+ resolution and a 144hZ refresh rate. To improve performance, it comes with the new Snapdragon G3x Gen 1, an active cooling gaming chipset with 3GHz Kryo CPU and 8GB RAM, and the Kishi V2 Pro, a game quality controller for Android and Xbox compatible games.
The console is optimized for Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband. It features the Razer Kishi V2 Pro equipped with detachable microswitch buttons, analog triggers, programmable macros, and Razer HyperSense haptics for competitive AAA gaming.
Other specs include a 5MP front camera, two-way speakers, and a microphone, as well as support for 5G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.2, WiFi 6E, USB-C, and 3.5mm audio (via the controller). A 5,000mAh battery powers the entire setup.
The console is currently only being sold in North America, with options for $399 and $499. Previously, Razer released the Razer Edge Gaming Tablet, which featured a unique controller and ran on Android as well.
