RazerCon is back for the third year running and once again there are new gaming items you’ll want to keep an eye on and even want to pick up for yourself. Today’s briefing came with exclusive reveals and some special guests but what stood out the most were some of the new products Razer is planning to bring to the market.
Today, Razer introduced a brand new Adventure series watch. It’s called the Panerai and it is made out of eSteel, sustainable steel made out of a diamond-like carbon – it is a 10 on the hardness scale and is scratch resistant. It had a recycled PET wrist strap made with recycled bottles and features green accents. The packaging is made out of 72 percent recycled material and features the Razer logo on the back.
Super-Luminova watch glows in the dark and takes a cue from the Razer green. This device comes at only 500 units worldwide available so if you’re looking to purchase one, you better act fast.
Brings your desktop to life — it is a premium wallpaper engine that will accent your desktop and be able to sync up with your Chroma RGB. Supports static and animated wallpaper and will include monthly new wallpaper drops including wallpapers from games like CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077.
The program will be free for the first 10,000 downloads, after that it will cost Razer silver to redeem.

What’s next? The Razer Edge for Android device – built with snapdragon d2x gen1 gaming platform – active cooling for sustained performance, designed with Qualcomm for Razer Edge.
Paired with a 6.8-inch AMOLED FHD+ Display – it is the best in class and can’t find a better screen on the market. Razer says because of this screen, there is less power draw on the battery so you can play longer. Graphics have a 144hz refresh rate and features immersive controls.
“The core concept of every product we put out always boils down to one thing, our ‘For Gamers. By Gamers.’ motto,” said Richard Hashim, Head of Razer’s Mobile & Console Division. “With the Razer Edge, we’ve created the ultimate handheld gaming platform. Together with Verizon and Qualcomm, we designed the Razer Edge 5G to be a true gamer device, capable of supporting gamers’ entire catalogues of AAA games or allowing them to stream endlessly online, taking their gaming experience on the go with near-zero latency.”
Ultrafast 288Hz sample rate touch screen with gorilla glass, the controller has, and also microswitch buttons, ultra-precise D-Pad and hyper sense haptics. None of this matters without connectivity – features wifi 6e uncongested 6hz channels.
When not connected to Wifi, the Edge can use Verizon Ultra Wideband 5G (10x faster than 4G) – it’s about cloud gaming for Razer and the device can load native Android games. The Edge comes preloaded with Steam Link, Xbox Game Pass, and the Nexus app.
