During the Mobile World Congress conference in Las Vegas, Verizon announced it will jointly launch the Razer Edge 5G. The product is the world’s first 5G handheld gaming console. It’s developed by Razer with the prowess of the Qualcomm Snapdragon family.

The Razer Edge 5G comes to enter the trending market of handheld gaming consoles. It will bring the Qualcomm Snapdragon G3X Gen 1 SoC and run the Android system. According to Razer, the final product will be unveiled during the RazerCon 2022 Ultimate Game Celebration. It will start on October 16th.

Razer Edge 5G power comes from the Snapdragon G3X Gen 1

You may be wondering about the powers of the Qualcomm Snapdragon G3X Gen 1 gaming SoC. It focuses on gaming like NVIDIA does with the Tegra series. It features an Adreno GPU, supports 144 fps gaming, and also brings support for sub-6 GHz 5G, mmWave 5G, and Wi-Fi 6E. Moreover, the processor inside the Razer Edge 5G can output 4K displays via USB. The C interface is also connected to the MR head-mounted display.

Qualcomm and Razer have joined forces to launch the development kid device powered by the SoC. It features a 6.65-inch 120 Hz HDR OLED screen, a 5 MP webcam on the front, and a 6,000 mAh battery. However, the kit is not the actual Razer Edge 5G. The product will be quite different.

The Razer Edge 5G runs Android as we said above. For that reason, it will run all mobile games from Google Play Store. That may not be enough to compete with the Nintendo Switch. However, it also has the ability to run cloud gaming services. Just like the Logitech G, it can run NVIDIA GeForce Now, or the Xbox Cloud Gaming, just as an example.

Is the Snapdragon G3X capable?

As per the teaser, the Razer Edge 5G features dual thumbsticks, a D-Pad, as well as several buttons next to the display while the back features several adaptive should triggers. We are curious to see if the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8CX will prove to be a valid alternative for gaming.

While Qualcomm proves itself in the mobile segment with the Snapdragon family, other iterations have been quite controversial. The Snapdragon 8cx series, for instance, is still trying to prove itself as a valid alternative for ARM-based computers. But is still miles behind Apple’s ARM family. So we are curious to see if the Snapdragon solution will really face the Tegra series.

Anyway, when it comes to handheld consoles, the Steam Deck is still the most powerful one. The console is the only one that can natively run demanding PC games, and can also do cloud gaming.
