Orange Pi gaming handheld revealed with up to AMD Ryzen 7 7840U and 16 GB of RAM
RetroDodo has shared details about the first Orange Pi gaming handheld. Typically, Shenzhen Xunlong Software uses its Orange Pi brand to sell single-board computers (SBCs). However, it has been known to deviate from SBCs. For example, it introduced a 14-inch portable monitor with Orange Pi branding in December 2022.
According to the website, Shenzhen Xunlong Software will offer the Orange Pi gaming handheld in three variants, starting with the Rockchip RK3588S. Additionally, there are said to be AMD Ryzen 7 6800U and Ryzen 7 7840U units, which will all come with a 7-inch display and an active cooling solution. Moreover, Shenzhen Xunlong Software is expected to pair the Ryzen 7 7840U with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD; memory details for other variants are unknown at this stage, although all should ship with a MicroSD card reader.
Allegedly, the Orange Pi gaming handheld will start at approximately CNY 1,500 (~US$217) with a Rockchip RK3588S chipset. Meanwhile, Ryzen 7 6800U models will jump to CNY 2,000 (~US$289), with Ryzen 7 7840U editions priced at nearer CNY 3,000 (~US$434). Shenzhen Xunlong Software is rumoured to launch the Orange Pi gaming handheld in October, but it remains to be seen whether that window applies to only China or globally.
