Razer goes after a growing trend of gamers who want compact gaming keyboard with the Huntsman Mini
Razer has announced it first 60% keyboard, the Huntsman Mini. According to the company, the Huntsman Mini is aimed to meet the "growing demand" from gamers who want a compact yet high-performance gaming keyboard. Not only does its smaller design reduce desk clutter, but Razer states that it also provides a greater area for using a mouse when gaming.
The Huntsman Mini comes in Black and Mercury White. Both colours are available with clicky purple or linear red optical switches. Razer claims to have improved the latter switches too. All models have aluminium chassis and individually-lit RGB keys. RGB lighting and other parameters can be tweaked from within Razer Synapse 3.
The Huntsman Mini connects via USB Type-C. The keyboard lacks any dedicated function keys, but Razer has incorporated them as secondary functions on the number keys. The keycaps themselves are Doubleshot PBT, which Razer claims are more durable than regular ABS ones.
The Huntsman Mini starts at US$119.99 or €129.99 for the Clicky edition. This version is available to purchase now from Razer and authorised retailers, while the Linear models will be available from August for a US$10 and €10 surcharge.
