ONEXPLAYER 2: Release date and more details about upcoming gaming handheld teased
One-netbook has confirmed new details about the ONEXPLAYER 2, a week after unveiling the device alongside an Intel Pentium Gold version of the ONEXPLAYER mini. To recap, the ONEXPLAYER 2 utilises the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU, along with an 8.4-inch IPS display, a 65.5 Wh battery and detachable controllers. Additionally, the company claimed that the ONEXPLAYER 2 would launch with Harman Kardon-branded stereo speakers and active stylus support, among other features.
Initially, One-netbook had hoped to launch the ONEXPLAYER 2 on November 25. However, it has delayed the device’s introduction until December 20. It is worth noting that there are a few caveats with this December 20 launch date. For one, December 20 only marks the ONEXPLAYER 2’s launch on Indiegogo, a popular crowdfunding website. While One-netbook has delivered on several crowdfunding g campaigns previously, they do not provide the same consumer guarantees as if you ordered it from the company’s website.
Secondly, ONEXPLAYER 2 backers will not receive units until March 2023 at the earliest, a lead time of at least three months. Typically, the likes of One-netbook dispatch orders in batches, which may explain why it has included a March to April 2023 delivery window on its website. Other details about the ONEXPLAYER 2 remain thin on the ground, although the company has showcased the device’s Switch-like gamepad. Seemingly, One-netbook is planning to offer the ONEXPLAYER 2 in two colours, based on the marketing renders released to date.
