Mini handheld console with powerful Intel Tiger Lake CPU launches at 1259 USD

The Mini is not the smallest console, yet a lot smaller than its main competitors. The console measures only 26×10.6 cm which is just about 2cm bigger than Nintendo Switch OLED. However ONEXPLAYER Mini competes in a different class equipped with more powerful hardware, such as Steam Deck or Aya Neo Next, both powered by AMD APUs.

Just as the original ONEXPLAYER, the Mini features Intel CPU. The console is equipped with Intel 11th Gen Core Core i7-1195G7 processor, the flagship low-power Tiger Lake CPU. This is a 10nm quad-core CPU with a base clock of 2.9 GHz and boosts up to 5.0 GHz. CPU’s power can be adjusted from 12W to 28W. The company does not clarify which is the default setting.

The CPU has built-in Intel Iris Xe graphics, which is the updated Xe-LP architecture with 96 Execution Units enabled. This graphics subsystem will clock up to 1.4 GHz and it should be sufficient for low to medium settings at low resolution.

Now speaking of the resolution, OneXPlayer MIni comes with a 7-inch 1920×1080 screen, being the first major handheld console to feature this resolution. This is not the first high-resolution console from One Netbook (the company that made the console) though. The original ONEXPLAYER comes with an 8.4 screen and 2560×1600 resolution.

In terms of battery and charging capability, the OneXplayer Mini offers a 10455 mAh battery and comes with a 100W GaN charger. This means that the console can be charged to 50% in under 20 minutes and to full capacity in under an hour. It is worth noting that 100W GaN chargers are quite expensive.

The Mini relies on Windows 11 operating system bundled with Game Control Center. This software is responsible for various features, such as applying different power settings or fan speed control. It can modify the game resolution and will also take care of the system updates.

The console is now available at a reduced price for the first 72 hours. It will ten costs at least 1259 USD, so more than twice as expensive as Steam Deck and triple the price of Nintendo Switch OLED:

  • ONEXPLAYER Mini 16G+512GB: 1039 USD (24 hours), 1059 USD (24-72 hours), 1259 USD (retail price)
  • ONEXPLAYER Mini 16G+1024GB: 1179 USD (24 hours), 1199 USD (24-72 hours), 1399 USD (retail price)
  • ONEXPLAYER Mini 16G+2048GB: 1379 USD (24 hours), 1399 USD (24-72 hours), 1599 USD (retail price)

ETA PRIME has one of the first reviews of this console. It covers synthetic CPU and GPU performance, gaming performance, emulation, and even external GPU connection because this console comes with a Thunderbolt 4 connector:
