MSI Claw: Specs, Release Date & Pricing in Australia

MSI is launching the MSI Claw handheld device in Australia, and the release date and pricing information are now available.

MSI Claw is the latest handheld to enter the market behind the likes of the Steam Deck, Asus Rog Alley, and Lenovo Legion Go. The device was first announced during CES 2024 in early January, but since then, MSI has been tight-lipped about it until now. Fortunately, this surprise announcement will be exciting to many, and it’s not long before you get your hands on an MSI Claw in Australia.

MSI Claw Release Date & Pricing

The MSI Claw will launch in Australia on March 28, 2024, and preorders for the device are available now at JB Hi-Fi. There are two different versions of the device: The MSI Claw Ultra 5 with a 512GB SSD and Ultra 5 processor will cost AU$1,399, and the Ultra 7 with a 1TB SSD and UItra 7 processor will cost AU$1,599.
