Razer’s Android handheld gaming device leaked
As mobile chipsets get more powerful and bigger – bigger – games come to mobile phones, it has become necessary to have a gaming handheld to represent the Android community. In response, Razer is working with Qualcomm to create just that.
Videocardz.com managed to get their hands on a number of PowerPoint slides showcasing next-generation products from SoC maker Qualcomm. Along with the already announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Qualcomm is reportedly working on a gaming-focused G3x.
To show off this chipset, Qualcomm has teamed up with Razer to create a Developer Kit handheld device. This specific device will come with a 120Hz OLED display, 6000mAh battery, 5G support, haptic feedback, and even a front and rear camera.
This device would be advertised as a streaming device, taking advantage of services like Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation Remote Play, and Steam Link. That being said, since it runs on Android, the handheld will not only be able to play titles from the Android Play Store, but will also be able to emulate many older consoles – maybe even GameCube and PS2 titles!
As the name suggests of course, it looks like this device won’t be positioned as a mainstream handheld. Even so, it is exciting to be a model for future devices. Cell phones are incredibly powerful, and hopefully this will help inspire game developers to push for greater ranges.
