Razer has been making mechanical keyboards for some time and it looks like the company is back with its latest keyboard in the form of the Huntsman Mini, which is based on its Huntsman series of mechanical keyboards with opto-mechanical switches. However, as you can clearly see in the photo, this will be done in a new form factor.
The Huntsman Mini uses the 60% form factor, which eliminates the arrow keys, navigation keys and number pad. This is the smallest form factor we've seen from Razer, where previously the company's smallest offering was probably the Razer BlackWidow Lite, a TKL model (not a number pad).
According to Razer, the decision for 60% was based on community feedback and the demand for the smaller form factor, which takes up less space on your desk and brings your mouse closer to your keyboard for better ergonomics. The Huntsman Mini will continue to use the optical switches, but it will be a newer generation that is said to sound better thanks to silicon inserts, which the company claims to improve sound and feel.
The switches are also lubricated at the factory to make them feel smoother during operation. The Huntsman Mini is available in both black and white and, unlike some older Razer keyboards, comes with a detachable USB-C cable to make transportation easier. The Huntsman Mini will be available in a $ 120 Clicky version, which will be available on July 14, and a $ 130 linear version, which will be available in August.
