Razer is offering a sneak peek at two upcoming Blade laptops set to be officially revealed at CES 2024. The Razer Blade 16 boasts the world’s initial 16-inch 240Hz OLED panel, while the enhanced Razer Blade 18 features an 18-inch 4K 165Hz display. Although pricing and complete specifications remain undisclosed, Razer plans to unveil more information during the upcoming week in Las Vegas.
The latest iteration of the Razer Blade 16 aims to enhance the already impressive display of last year’s model. Developed in collaboration with Samsung Display, the 2024 version features an OLED panel with QHD+ resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate, and a remarkable 0.2ms response time. Notably, it is VESA Certified ClearMR 11000, evaluating motion blur based on the ratio of clear to blurry pixels. With a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification, the black levels are expected to leave a lasting impression.
In contrast to the 2023 model’s QHD, 240Hz panel, the 2024 Blade 18 transitions to a 4K, 165Hz display. Featuring a 3ms response time, Nvidia G-Sync support, and full coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, it marks a notable upgrade.
While Razer is keeping the complete specifications under wraps until the official CES 2024 unveiling on Monday, it did mention that the devices feature premium CNC aluminum unibody construction. Sporting a 16:10 aspect ratio, an “up to” 89 percent screen-to-body ratio, and ultra-thin bezels, both Razer Blade laptops are Calman Verified with color accuracy certification. Additionally, they undergo individual calibration at the factory.
