The AYN Odin features a 5.98-inch and 1080p display, along with LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.1 storage. The machine will be available in three models, starting with the US$165 Odin Lite. The AYN Odin will be available in multiple colours, too.

In June, Taki Udon showcased Odin, an Android-based gaming handheld with a Snapdragon SoC and Android 10. In the meantime, GPD has showcased the XP, a device based around the same fundamentals as the Odin. Now, AYN Technologies has revealed the full specifications for the Odin, including prices.

The Odin will be available in three versions, Base, Pro and Lite. As the screenshot below shows, all models will have a 5.98-inch touchscreen display that runs at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.1 storage. Additionally, all Odin models have mini HDMI, USB 3.1 Type-C and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, along with dual 1 W speakers.

However, the Odin Base and Odin Pro have a Snapdragon 845, compared to the MediaTek Dimensity 1000C in the Odin Lite. Also, the Odin Pro is the only model available with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a 6,000 mAh battery. Oddly, the Odin Lite ships with Android 11, while the others will arrive running Android 10.

AYN has not revealed when the Odin's Indiegogo campaign will start, but it hopes to ship all models by December. The Odin Lite, which ships the latest of the three, will start at US$165, US$34 less than the Odin Base. By contrast, the Odin Pro will cost US$249. AYN has also created a small dock for US$50.
