Chinese company announces Windows 10 gaming handheld with 1600p display

Chinese tech company One Netbook Technologies has announced its One Xplayer gaming handheld. This handheld PC features an Intel Tiger Lake CPU with Xe GPU and an 8.4 “screen with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels.

The One Xplayer appeared as a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe on Monday, May 10 , with a target of 21,169 euros. On the same date, more than 500,000 euros was collected by more than 800 different backers . The handheld has already been shown at demo events in China.

One Netbook provides the handheld with a touch-sensitive IPS LCD with a screen diagonal of 8.4 “. The panel could display the full sRGB color space and get a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. However, the company advertises gaming performance with a reduced resolution of 1280×720 pixels. This may be a typo, given the relative screen ratio of 16:10, a resolution of 1280×800 pixels makes more sense.

The system will also get a Tiger Lake CPU from Intel, VideoCardz also writes . The manufacturer comes with several One Xplayer variants, which come with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 and 512GB NVMe storage, Core i7-1165G7 and 1TB storage, or a Core i7-1185G7 with a 2TB PCIe 3.0 SSD. All variants have an Intel Xe GPU and 16GB of Lpddr4x-4266 memory.

The gaming handheld also gets a Nintendo Switch-like design, with an integrated controller. The handheld does not include a keyboard as standard, although One Netbook will optionally offer a magnetic keyboard for 33 euros. The handheld also supports USB keyboards and mice; One Netbook provides the device with a USB 3.0 Type-A connector and two USB 4.0 connectors.

The PC comes with Windows 10, with which the handheld supports Steam. The system also features a 59Wh battery that supports 65W charging via USB-C. The One Xplayer also gets a fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers and support for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.

The handheld will receive a suggested retail price from 872 euros on release, for the variant with Core i5 CPU. The Core i7-1165G7 variant will cost 954 euros, while the most expensive variant would cost 1316 euros converted. Production of the handhelds is due to start in June with first deliveries expected in June or July.

Several Chinese manufacturers are already producing Windows 10 gaming handhelds. GPD is one of the best known. That company has already released several handhelds and last year announced the GPD Win 3. That variant will get a Tiger Lake processor and a 5.5 “screen. There is also the AYA NEO Founder, with a Ryzen 5 4500U CPU. One Gx1 Pro also has a Tiger Lake CPU.
