The ONEXPLAYER mini is orderable now and will begin shipping on January 20. Until tomorrow, the device starts at US$1,039 with 512 GB of storage, over 60% more expensive than the Steam Deck. However, One-netbook will eventually raise the price to US$1,259 after its pre-sale period, increasing the price differential between the ONEXPLAYER mini and Steam Deck to almost 1.94x.
