Verizon introduces the world’s first 5G mobile game console

The world’s first 5G mobile gaming device is being developed and marketed by Verizon with computer equipment manufacturer Razer. The two confirmed that Android will feature Qualcomm’s gaming-specific Snapdragon G3X Gen 1 system-on-chip (SoC), which supports 5G mmWave and sub-6, as well as Wi-Fi 6 and 6E. Details were limited when the Android gadget was shown off at Mobile World Congress in Las Vegas last week.

A portable gaming gadget concept has been created by Qualcomm and Razer

In December 2021, Qualcomm and Razer developed a prototype portable gaming gadget, which can now be seen as a sign of things to come. The Snapdragon G3X Gen 1 was also present in the prototype, which only had access to programmers. Razer is a logical collaborator in this area as it currently sells joystick kits for smartphones that turn them into portable gaming systems. The recently unveiled invention, however, is expected to be a specialized gaming device.

Users could download and run games for standalone play, as well as stream games online, the companies claim. With the help of fast 5G connectivity, it is expected that this can be done with as little lag as possible. In an interview with RCR Wireless News, Christian Guirnalda, director of Verizon’s 5G Laboratories and Research Institutes, said the carrier is focused on addressing core issues associated with meeting growing bandwidth needs for future phases of mobile entertainment. This gives the application producer an additional opportunity to study the improvement of the portable gaming experience by taking into account new design concerns.

In addition to the game console, Verizon also launched new entertainment and wellness services at MWC Las Vegas and a first-generation mobile receiver powered by Qualcomm’s 5G fixed wireless access platform.
