The GPD XP is the company's latest gaming handheld, but it will not compete against the AYA NEO, ONEXPLAYER or the Steam Deck. Instead, the GPD XP will face off against gaming smartphones, with the advantage of having a modular controller.

GPD is best known for producing Windows-based machines, including the Win 3. However, the company has returned to its roots by unveiling another Android handheld, the GPD XP. GPD has not formally announced the XP yet, but it has started teasing the device on its social media channels.

So far, GPD has revealed that the XP has a 6.81-inch display, albeit one initially designed for a smartphone. The hole punch is the giveaway here, which looks a tad unusual on a gaming handheld. GPD has also included a 7,000 mAh battery, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

The company states that the device will be available with either a MediaTek Helio G95, MediaTek Helio G90T or a Dimensity 900 SoC. It is worth noting while the GPD XP will have a 4G modem, it will only support 4G data, not calls. Arguably, the biggest for the GPD XP will be its modular controller, for which GPD has produced three so far.

Unfortunately, GPD has not revealed how much the XP will cost, nor when the device will be available. Apparently, we should expect details on both to arrive soon.
