AYANEO, a Chinese gaming handheld manufacturer, is making significant strides in the gaming industry. Following the success of their first mini-PC, the company is gearing up to launch the AYANEO Pocket S gaming handheld. This new device, powered by the Snapdragon G2x Gen2 chipset, is set to hit the market early next year, with AYANEO recently releasing gameplay footage in anticipation of the release.
The company has had a busy year, with the launch of the AYANEO AM01 mini-PC and AYANEO SLIDE gaming handheld last month. Additionally, they've introduced products like the Retro Power Bank, Pocket DMG, FLIP KB, and FLIP DS. The AYANEO Pocket S, which is expected to be available in at least black and white color options, represents the latest in their expanding lineup.
AYANEO Pocket S: A new device for gaming enthusiasts
Currently in its prototype stage, the AYANEO Pocket S was first previewed back in August 2023. Described by the company as a prototype and an engineering sample, it is an Android gaming handheld that boasts a Snapdragon G3x Gen2 chipset. This chipset is predicted to deliver superior performance and reliability compared to models equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen2. Consequently, this advanced technology suggests that the AYANEO Pocket S will be positioned at a higher price point.
The recently released 8.44-minute video showcasing the AYANEO Pocket S in action has been well-received. The prototype's impressive performance indicates that the production version could see further enhancements. The device is projected to be a high-end Android flagship gaming handheld. The graphics displayed in the gameplay footage are striking, and the handheld's sleek design has already garnered attention from the gaming community, eagerly awaiting its release.
