Razer has launched an upgraded model of the 13.3-inch Razer Blade Stealth laptop. The new version of the Blade Stealth comes with a new chassis, an optional 4K touchscreen and smaller bezels.

At first glance, the new Razer Blade Stealth may appear smaller than the previous generation, but it is in fact a bit thicker, according to The Verge. The new model only looks like it has a smaller footprint because the bezels around the display are now 60 percent thinner than the older model.

Speaking of the display, the new Blade Stealth can be configured to have a glossy 4K touchscreen. There’s also an option for a 1080p full HD screen. Both display configurations will have the thinner bezels and they will cover 100 percent of the sRGB color space.

The new Razer Blade Stealth also ditches individual key backlighting in favor of a single-zone RGB lighting layout in the keyboard. This decision was probably made in order to improve battery life and make the keyboard “feel punchier and more responsive.”

The touchpad now comes with a larger glass surface area and it has Microsoft Precision support. Other changes in the new gaming laptop include the addition of an infrared 720p webcam that supports Microsoft’s Windows Hello facial recognition system and a smaller 65W USB-C power adapter. The new Blade Stealth is also packing a 53.1Wh battery.

Razer claims that the base model of the new gaming laptop comes with a battery life of 13 hours. The new Razer Blade Stealth comes in three different configurations and its base model comes with a full HD display with integrated Intel UHD Graphics, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage.

For gamers who want more power, they can get the new Razer Blade Stealth with full HD display, GeForce MX150 graphics and 16GB of RAM. The top-tier model of the Blade Stealth comes with the 4K touchscreen, GeForce MX150 graphics, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. The 4K version of the laptop has a battery life of eight hours, while the mid-tier version can deliver up to 11 hours.

All three configurations of the Razer Blade Stealth are powered by Intel’s 8th Generation Core i7-8565U processor clocked at 1.8GHz with a Turbo Boost of up to 4.6GHz. The previous version of the gaming laptop arrived with an Intel Core i5-8250U CPU.

“The Blade Stealth has excelled at being the best productivity laptop on the market,” Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said. “We pushed the boundaries further by incorporating NVIDIA graphics with up to four times the graphics performance while continuing to keep the system incredibly compact and thin. The results of our efforts have lead Razer to create one of the world’s most powerful ultraportable laptops ever.”

Finally, the new Razer Blade Stealth comes with four stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, Thunderbolt 3, USB Type-C 3.1, two USB Type-A 3.1 ports and a 5mm headphone/microphone combo port.

The new version of the Razer Blade Stealth is now available to buy from Razer’s website, with a starting price of $1,399. The mid-tier model costs $1,599, while the top-tier 4K model with the 512GB of SSD storage costs $1,899.
