The ONEXPLAYER 2 is a handheld gaming PC with an 8.4 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel IPS LCD touchscreen display, a pair of detachable game controllers that clip onto the sides, and an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with 8 Zen 3+ CPU cores and 12 RDNA graphics cores.

It went up for pre-order last year through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, and One Netbook says units will begin shipping to backers on February 20th. Folks who missed out on crowdfunding can also now pre-order a ONEXPLAYER 2 from the ONEXPLAYER Store or Indiegogo InDemand.

Pre-order prices start at $1099, but there are a whole bunch of options available:

Config Pre-order Price Retail Price
16GB + 512GB $1099 $1249
16GB + 1TB $1199 $1349
16GB + 2TB $1299 $1499
32GB + 1TB $1299 $1500
32GB + 2TB $1499 $1599

Those prices are a bit higher than the crowdfunding prices, but that’s the price you pay for not having to wait as long to get your hands on a unit: One Netbook says it will begin shipping the ONEXPLAYER 2 to customers who pre-order from its website in late February or early March.

Optional accessories up for pre-order include a $39 magnetic keyboard ($59 retail), a $29 carrying case ($39 retail), and a $39 active stylus ($59 retail).

There’s also a “Handheld Connector” up for pre-order for $29 ($59 retail) that allows you to use the detachable controllers as a wireless game controller.

Of course the ONEXPLAYER 2 isn’t the only game in town. The elephant in the room is Valve’s Steam Deck, which is less powerful, but a whole lot cheaper thanks to a $399 starting price. But other recent models with Ryzen 7 6800U chips include the AYA Neo 2, AYA Neo Geek, and GPD Win 4.
