Razer is giving a sneak peek of two upcoming Blade laptops that will be officially revealed next week at CES 2024. The new Razer Blade 16 features the world’s first 16-inch 240Hz OLED panel, while the updated Razer Blade 18 has an 18-inch 4K 165Hz panel. Pricing and full specs have not been disclosed yet, but Razer will share more details next week in Las Vegas.
The new Razer Blade 16 aims to enhance the already impressive display of last year’s model. The OLED panel in the 2024 version was co-developed by Samsung Display and offers QHD+ resolution, 240Hz refresh rate, 0.2ms response time, and VESA Certified ClearMR 11000. With a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification, the black levels of the panel are expected to be impressive.
On the other hand, the 2024 Blade 18 upgrades from the 2023 model’s QHD, 240Hz panel to a 4K, 165Hz one. It features a 3ms response time with Nvidia G-Sync support and covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.
While Razer is saving the full details for their official CES 2024 reveal, the company has mentioned that both laptops are constructed with high-grade CNC aluminum unibody and have a 16:10 aspect ratio, “up to” an 89 percent screen-to-body ratio, and ultra-thin bezels. Both laptops are Calman Verified and come with color accuracy certification, with individual calibration in the factory.
Engadget will be reporting live from CES 2024 in Las Vegas and will have the full details and hands-on impressions of both new laptops.
