GPD XP Plus is now orderable from US$339 with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200, a 7,000 mAh battery and a modular design
GPD has started selling the XP Plus, a more powerful alternative to the XP. To recap, the GPD XP Plus relies on a 6.81-inch display with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset, LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. Effectively a smartphone converted into a gaming handheld, the GPD XP Plus runs Android 11 and features a modular design.
Thankfully, GPD has equipped the XP Plus with a larger battery, which has a 7,000 mAh capacity. Also, the GPD XP Plus supports 30 W charging, up from 20 W in the original GPD XP. For reference, the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 has four ARM Cortex-A78 cores, four Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G77 MC9 GPU. Sadly, the handheld only has a 60 Hz display, although it outputs at 2,400 x 1,080 pixels.
Currently, the GPD XP Plus is orderable through Indiegogo from US$339 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage. Alternatively, the company sells a 256 GB model for US$374, which is slightly more than many 128 GB microSD cards sell for online from reputable brands. Still, the higher capacity configuration has proven more popular on Indiegogo so far. As it stands, GPD hopes to begin shipping the XP Plus globally in August.
