Razer has released a new variant of its Raiju controller. This one is designed for mobile devices, and may be a response to other products, such as the range of separate-purchase accessories for the ASUS ROG Phone. Like the Raiju Ultimate for PlayStation, this mobile version has 4 Mecha-Tactile action buttons (i.e. in place of the square-triangle-X-circle buttons).
The new Raiju Mobile has the Tournament layout, in which the left-hand thumb-stick and arrow buttons are inverted. This controller also has a hair-trigger mode for rapid fire, as well as trigger stops for quick fire. It also (obviously) has a phone mount with as much as 60 degrees in tilting ability, although it is not clear if it can fit non-Razer phones. The new Raiju can connect via Bluetooth or USB-C, although it may require a USB connection for power. Its built-in battery is rated for up to 23 hours of use on one charge.
A potential customer would need to be serious about their mobile gaming, however, as the Raiju Mobile is priced at US$149.99 on Razer's website. It should be noted that it is only compatible with Android, and requires Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher for compatibility with its software and interface.
