The newest portable PC gaming console, the OneXfly, was unveiled a few days ago by Onexplayer, a brand of One-handheld Netbook’s gaming consoles. As the first portable gaming system to switch to the new Ryzen 7000 range of CPUs, the new handheld system is expected to include the AMD Ryzen 5 7520U “Mendocino” APU.

ONEXPLAYER reveals the OneXfly handheld gaming console, premium cost with new AMD Ryzen 5 7520U “Mendocino” APU

Three months ago, we tested the Onexplayer Mini with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U APU. The device has emerged as a major rival in the market for portable gaming systems after several months of use, providing one of the greatest gaming experiences when compared to Valve’s Steam Deck.

About the new OneXfly system, little is known. There hasn’t been a further notification on Twitter or the firm’s official website since the news was made on the Weibo account of the company. To follow the revelation on their social media account, there is no press kit.

What is known about the new system is that it will be smaller and more consumer-friendly in terms of cost. The six-inch screen on the new OneXfly has a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The screen size is equivalent to Nintendo’s Switch portable, however the AMD Ryzen 5 7520U “Mendocino” APU has a faster processor. According to rumors, AMD’s Mendocino family of processors are low-powered and classified as “entry-level” APUs, so customers will benefit from the reduced price. Inferior pricing, however, equate to lower performance, which limits the enjoyment of higher-level AAA games.

AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Mendocino’ 6nm CPU Lineup (Official):

AMD Ryzen 5 7520U 6nm 4 / 8 2.8 / 4.3 GHz 6 MB Radeon 610M (RDNA 2 2 CU) TBD 8-15W
AMD Ryzen 3 7420U 6nm 4 / 8 TBD 8 MB? Radeon 610M (RDNA 2 2 CU) TBD 8-15W
AMD Ryzen 3 7320U 6nm 4 / 8 2.4 / 4.1 GHz 8 MB? Radeon 610M (RDNA 2 2 CU) TBD 8-15W
AMD Athlon Gold 7220U 6nm 2 / 4 2.4 / 3.7 GHz 4 MB? Radeon 610M (RDNA 2 2 CU) TBD 8-15W

The advantage of the lower price will enable the business to compete with more manufacturers of handheld devices, including the company above Nintendo, AYANEO with their AIR line of consoles, and the Valve Steam Deck, which has enjoyed strong sales since its release thanks in large part to AMD and Valve’s support.

Onexplayer has not yet provided information on price or extra features. However, a distinctive brown color scheme that is not common on game consoles is an interesting addition to the new series. The new faceplate is seen below with an image of a cake that has the same colors. It’s intriguing to see even more unusual color possibilities for more recent portable devices, but does it make you wonder who the target market is for such a fun option?

Additionally, stacked triggers, the option to personalize the writing on the faceplate (with RGB behind the lettering), and RGB behind each thumbstick are all believed to be included in the new OneXfly system. The system may be slimmer and more similar to the Nintendo Switch as a result of the layered architecture. Smaller hands might be more difficult for certain players to reach, and the stacked triggers are a unique design that is not commonly employed. We will have to wait for evaluations to determine how unique the system is from the competition, but it does set it apart from the competition.
