OneXplayer 2 Pro is a mini computer turned console
The product has just been revealed in China.
There have been countless rumors and teasers from OneNetbook (the company behind the OneXplayer brand) about their future handheld gaming product. It was not a secret that the upcoming console will feature AMD’s latest Ryzen 7000 APU, but this has not been confirmed until now.
Today, the company showed off its new OneXplayer 2 Pro console during a special event in China. Unlike some AMD Ryzen 7 7840U (Zen4/RDNA3) based consoles already announced, this product actually offers features other consoles do not. Starting with the screen, which is 8.4-inch in size and has a resolution of 2560×1600. This is twice the resolution of Steam Deck and even higher than the upcoming ASUS ROG Ally (1080p).
Furthermore, this product will feature detachable controllers, just like the Nintendo Switch. But this is not actually a new feature of this OneXplayer product, as the last-gen models featuring Ryzen 7 6800U or Intel Core i7 1370P processors already offered the same functionality. Gamers can turn their product into a full-fledged laptop by removing controllers and replacing them with a keyboard.
The company confirms that their console will offer up to 64GB of LPDDR5X memory and up to 4TB of PCIe Gen4 x4 NVMe storage. Those are of course the highest options and the device will also be offered with smaller capacities at lower price.
Unfortunately, the company didn’t say anything about the launch price or when the OneXplayer 2 Pro would be available. With the launch of ROG Ally now set for June 13th, most handheld console makers will now struggle to convince gamers to pay extra for their features. As an example, AOKZOE tweaked the specifications to include 32 GB instead of 16 GB as the default storage capacity, all to justify the $999 launch price.
Thus far, OneXplayer has only showcased a special edition of the product called OneXplayer 2 Pro Eva Limited Edition in purple.
