Razer hinting at a new "world's first" Blade laptop set for IFA 2019
IFA 2019 is officially kicking off next week and there will indubitably be plenty of surprises from major OEMs. The fact that both Intel Ice Lake-U and Comet Lake-U are still fresh in the market could lead to a number of new laptop announcements all set to launch before the Holiday shopping season.
Razer, however, is already positioning itself ahead of the game with a mysterious teaser image comparing the thickness of a Blade laptop to the European cent as shown below. Its caption boasts a potential followup to Razer's first Blade laptop released 8 years ago that will debut at IFA 2019. While it doesn't hint at much else, the timing of the reveal lines up perfectly with the new aforementioned Intel CPU families and also all the new laptop announcements from Lenovo and Dell.
If we are to hazard a guess, Razer will likely follow suit with an Ice Lake-U or Comet Lake-U Blade Stealth refresh to replace the last generation Whiskey Lake-U model since that is what everybody else is currently doing. Of course, we wouldn't be surprised to see some odd curve balls thrown in for good measure if all those whacky CES prototypes are anything to go by.
Until then, we'll just have to wait for IFA 2019 to see what kind of surprises Razer and other OEMs will have up their sleeves.
