The specifications read like a dream list for the Nintendo Switch Pro including a large 8.4-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution IPS display, Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU with Iris Xe graphics, 16 GB RAM, dual heat pipes and fans, Thunderbolt 4, and a large 15300 mAh battery.

Many manufacturers have been experimenting with Nintendo Switch-like handhelds as of late and the results are looking very promising thus far. The Switch itself launched over 4 years ago meaning similar handhelds as of 2021 will certainly be more powerful and more impressive on paper.

Chinese PC manufacturer One-Netbook has just launched an Indiegogo page revealing its 8.4-inch One XPlayer handheld running on Windows 10. It's similar in concept to the GPD WIN 3 or AYA Neo except with notable specification and hardware differences. Its hardware features read like a standard 11th gen Core Ultrabook:

  • Intel Core i5-1135G7 to Core i7-1185G7 CPU
  • Integrated Iris Xe graphics
  • 8.4-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution IPS touchscreen, 100 percent sRGB coverage
  • 16 GB LPDDR4x 4266 MHz RAM (soldered)
  • Up to 1 TB M.2 2280 PCIe SSD (upgradeable)
  • 59 Wh battery
  • 2x USB-C 4.0 ports w/ Thunderbolt 4, USB-A, 3.5 mm combo audio
  • Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0

Though final dimensions and weight have yet to be determined, preliminary product images show a higher screen-to-body ratio than both the Switch or WIN 3 which have noticeably smaller displays.

Internally, the One-Netbook handheld will utilize dual fans and dual heat pipes as opposed to just one fan and heat pipe each in the aforementioned Nintendo and GPD models. Support for external graphics cards via eGPU docks will also come standard.
