Looks like 2022 is the year of the Windows handheld. The floodgates have opened, and now dozens of new Windows-based gaming handhelds are crawling out of the woodwork. Here's another one: the AOKZOE A1 (or 6800U, it's not clear yet). Pronounced "Ay Okay Zoe", the team is a daughter company of the One Netbook company, which already has a range of UMPCS and Windows handhelds under their belt, so they are not completely new to the game.

What's new to the game is the Ryzen 7 6800m which should give this handheld some extra kick, and a leg up on the (current) competition.

The rest of the specs:

Production model will support Windows 11 and SteamOS.
A prototype has already made its way to tech reviewers, so here's a hands-on / first look video by ETA Prime:



Not too shabby.

Preorders are expected to start this month, with units shipping this September.

Price is not yet known, but I expect it to be spicy.

Not too sure about that dpad but hopefully it ranges in the 200-300 range nice to see more competitors in the game and hopefully will cause others to lower price production at some point

AYN Loki Zero will cost 199 Trumps, and, for this low of price people will be glad to go low spec, that's the route I believe those handheld market will be focused on.

That said, run cyberpunk at 60fps on a handheld... man... it is indeed something. With this power, people will don't even care about the crap d-pad, as they will not be using it anyway (3D gaming machine there, you know...)

Kickstarter kicks off today, I still don't know the price but I expect 4 digits.

Here's a more detailed overview:


tl;dr: it's a beast, but an expensive one.
