Razer has just unveiled the 2022 iteration of the Blade 15 gaming laptop. In addition to the usual internal upgrades, Blade 15 (2022) brings the world’s first laptop to adopt a 240Hz OLED screen with QHD resolution. In this article, we will be discussing the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Razer Blade 15 (2022) in Nepal.
Razer Blade 15 (2022) Overview:
World’s first OLED screen with 240Hz screen
The main talking point of the new Razer Blade 15 (2022) is undoubtedly its display. While it is common for smartphones to have OLED screens, the same cannot be said for laptops. Laptops with OLED screens are on a slow rise, but they are not mainstream yet. Thus, it is quite a big deal for a laptop, that too gaming, to feature one.
In addition to the deep blacks promised by the OLED technology, Razer Blade 15 (2022) has support for 240Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-Sync. There is also another variant of the OLED screen with 165Hz refresh rate and without the G-Sync.
If you want an even higher refresh rate, there is also a 360Hz display variant of the laptop. But this is with the LCD panel with 100% sRGB coverage. For content creators, there is a 4K option well with 100% DCI-P3 and 144Hz refresh rate.
Same Old Design
Aside from the display, Razer has made little to no changes on the design front. The 2022 iteration of the Razer Blade 15 2022 sports the same CNC-milled aluminum chassis as its predecessor. Razer has finished it with an adonized matte black and anti-fingerprint coating.
Opening the lid, you are introduced to the new keyboard layout with larger keycaps. Likewise, the laptop now has laser-cut speaker grills and a refined hinge with a thinner profile and added ventilation.
