(Update: It's the Huntsman Mini) Razer is set to launch its first keyboard without any NumPad or arrow keys on July 14 at 8 AM PST. Gamers who may have been turned off by Razer's catalog of full-size keyboards may finally get what they're looking for.

You can always count on Razer to hype up any product announcement no matter how trivial it may be. Whereas other companies like Lenovo or HP would have probably just announced the product via press release and then call it a day, Razer is putting up an entire page and countdown dedicated to its first 60-percent keyboard announcement. It might be a little much, but Razer knows its dedicated fan base best.

For those unfamiliar, a 60-percent keyboard contrasts the usual 100-percent keyboard by excluding the NumPad and arrow keys for a smaller and more compact form factor. Gamers who seldom use these keys would suddenly have more free space on their desks as a result. We suspect that the keyboard will carry per-key RGB Chroma lighting and mechanical keys not unlike most other Razer accessories.

The countdown will end on July 14 at 8 AM PST which is when we'll presumably get our first look at the new Razer keyboard. We'll update this page when the time comes.

(July 14, 2020 update: The keyboard is revealed to be the Huntsman Mini with the option between clicky or linear optical switches, doubleshot PBT keycaps, onboard memory and lighting presets, detachable USB-C cable, and of course, Chroma RGB support. It will have zone lighting instead of per-key RGB lighting.)

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
