Razer Huntsman Mini Analog: First 60% keyboard with analog optical switches announced
Razer has launched a new keyboard, the Huntsman Mini Analog. Heralded as combining 'minimal form' with 'maximum precision', the Huntsman Mini Analog combines the Huntsman Mini from 2020 with the optical switches from the Huntsman V2 Analog that debuted last year. However, Razer's latest keyboard is the first 60% keyboard that features analog optical switches.
Hence, the Hunstman Mini Analog has no numeric keypad, arrow keys or even a function row. You can still assign these missing elements to other keys though as secondary functions, or trigger the function row by pressing the dedicated 'fn ' key. Razer allows people to configure the Huntsman Mini Analog through its Synapse 3 software. Having done away with these extra keys, the Huntsman Mini Analog should fit neatly on a desk without taking up too much space.
Predictably, Razer has included Chroma RGB backlighting, along with 'hybrid onboard storage' for up to five keybinding profiles. Moreover, the keyboard comes with Razer Doubleshot PBT keycaps, an aluminium chassis and N-key roll-over with built-in anti-ghosting. Additionally, the Huntsman Mini Analog offers fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording, a gaming mode option and a 1,000 Hz polling rate.
The Huntsman Mini Analog is available to order now in multiple markets, including the US, where it retails for US$149.99. In comparison, the original Huntsman Mini cost US$119.99 and also came with a detachable USB Type-C cable.
