One-Netbook has designed another handheld games console, having launched the OneGX1 Pro last year. While the OneGX1 and OneGX1 Pro have flip-up displays, One-Netbook has adopted a more conventional design with the One XPlayer. The removable controllers and built-in keyboard have made way for an 8.4-inch display, a huge improvement on the 7-inch one found in the OneGX1 series. Ultimately, the One XPlayer looks like the AYA NEO or, to Nintendo some credit, the Switch and Switch Lite.
The 8.4-inch display is not only larger than the one found in the OneGX1 series, but it is also higher resolution. According to One-Netbook, the One XPlayer's display will operate at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, giving a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 269 PPI pixel density. The built-in buttons, d-pad and analog sticks all look fairly standard, although it is unclear if the device has two sets of shoulder buttons or just one.
Additionally, One-Netbook claims that it will sell the One XPlayer with a choice from Intel's Core i5-1135G7, Core i7-1165G7 and Core i7-1185G7. These Tiger Lake processors all contain powerful Iris Xe G7 iGPUs, albeit one with 80 Execution Units (EUs) in the case of the Core i5 part compared to the 96 EUs that the Core i7 processors possess. Moreover, the One XPlayer will run on a 60 Wh battery with an M.2 2280 PCIe SSD.
One-Netbook is yet to confirm when it will launch the One XPlayer. However, Liliputing notes that the company will host an 'internal device test meeting' with Tencent on March 28, so One-Netbook may not be that far away from making an announcement of some kind. In the meantime, the company has posted a short teaser on Bilibili.
