AYANEO KUN to launch with 75 Wh battery as hands-on images show scale of huge gaming handheld
AYANEO and its CEO Arthur Zhang have published hands-on images of KUN, a few days after the former showcased the gaming handheld alongside the AIR 1S. While AYANEO is on the verge of launching the latter, the KUN appears to be a way off yet. For example, AYANEO has not revealed what processor underpins the KUN, but it has since confirmed that the device will rely on a 75 Wh battery.
In other words, the AYANEO KUN has a larger battery capacity than most modern laptops, including some cheaper gaming laptops like the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-46 and Medion Erazer Defender P40. By contrast, most modern gaming handhelds have sub-50 Wh batteries, such as the ASUS ROG Ally and the GPD Win 4. The AYANEO KUN also has a larger battery than the GPD Win Max 2 2023, which combines AMD Phoenix APUs with a 10.1-inch display.
In comparison, the AYANEO KUN has an 8.4-inch display like the ONEXPLAYER 2 series. AYANEO expects the KUN to be heavier than the ONEXPLAYER 2 though, which weighs 864 g. Currently, AYANEO anticipates that the KUN will exceed 900 g, double the weight of the AIR 1S. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the KUN dwarves the AIR 1S, which will debut tomorrow on Indiegogo. So far, AYANEO has only published a few hands-on images of the KUN, although none showing its kickstand, a prerequisite for a device this large. It remains unclear when AYANEO will start selling the KUN, nor when it will provide full details about what it describes as 'possibly the most powerful Windows handheld ever'.
