AOKZOE A1 Pro and A2 gaming handhelds teased with flagship AMD Ryzen 7000 APUs
The handheld gaming market is being to hot up again following the launch of new AMD Ryzen APUs. While ASUS has just announced the ROG Ally, AOKZOE is returning with the A1 Pro and the A2. For reference, AOKZOE is a One-netbook and ONEXPLAYER spin-off, which explains why the original unit looks like a ONEXPLAYER.
AOKZOE is now preparing to release two new gaming handhelds under the names A1 Pro and A2. Seemingly, the former retains the design of the A1, which AOKZOE launched last year. Thus it will look like the various first-generation ONEXPLAYER models and will have an 8-inch display. However, the A2 should sport a 7-inch panel within a smaller frame than the A1 Pro. In other words, it seems that AOKZOE plans to offer its version of the ONEXPLAYER mini.
Unfortunately, AOKZOE is light on other details for the moment. Although the company claims that the A1 Pro will ship with 'AMD's flagship 7XXX series processor', it is unclear which one this could be. Potentially, the Ryzen 7 7735U or Ryzen 7 7736U could fit this bill without offering many performance benefits over the Ryzen 7 6800U powering the original AOKZOE A1. We would not rule out AOKZOE equipping its next-generation gaming handhelds with Zen 4 and RDNA 3-based APUs yet, as ASUS plans to do with the ROG Ally. Currently, AOKZOE is allowing people to register to test an A1 Pro via an 'internal test form'. It remains to be seen how many testers AOKZOE will recruit, though.
