This week, it’s been exactly one year since Razer announced the 6.8-inch 2nd gen. Razer Edge tablet with Android. And on that occasion it is going up for sale through Amazon too, and not just Razer exclusively any longer: https://www.amazon.com/Razer-Edge-WiFi-Gaming-Tablet
This is the Wi-Fi version and not the 5G version, and it’s launching from Amazon for $399 on October 23. So there’s no real difference. It’s just that it’s becoming available from another store. But it’s a nice way to use up a gift card.
The Razer Edge is primarily a gaming tablet, but for an (almost) 7-inch tablet, it sure packs a lot of hardware.
It has a 6.8-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a display resolution of 2400 x 1080 and even a high 144 refresh rate.
And it’s a bit in a category of its own with the custom 3.0 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 processor and Adreno 660 GPU, with 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM (for Wi-Fi model, with 8GB RAM on 5G model), and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage that also supports 2TB microSD cards.
This combination regularly clocks in Geekbench 6 benchmark scores of over 1600 in single-core, and up to around 3950 in multi-core scores, which makes for a generally smooth Android gaming tablet.
But Razer didn’t stop there, as it’s also equipped with Wi-Fi 6E, a 5MP front camera with 60 fps FHD support, stereo speakers, and a 5000 mAh battery.
And with detachable controllers, it is very pocketable. The Razer Edge tablet itself is 11mm thick and weighs just 264 grams.
