AYANEO Reveals the Full Specs of the Pocket S. IGG Pre-Launch Begins Now!

The AYANEO Pocket S, a high-end Android handheld, has pre-launched on IGG revealing the full specs. The full launch is expected in April.

In case you missed it, AYANEO has been ramping up marketing for their upcoming Pocket S handheld. In fact, the Indiegogo pre-launch page for the device just went live! The Pocket S is a slim, high-end Android device, which should be capable of handling just about any emulator currently on the Android market, including Switch emulation. Here are some pics of the device:

As you can see, it looks a little more “premium” than most Android handhelds we’re used to. And if you’re worried about the device having a completely flat back (which I was), it looks like AYANEO will be selling a protective case that doubles as a grip for the device:

But you want to hear about what actually powers this high-end device right? Well, don’t worry, because we have the full specifications of the device right here! Take a look:

  • CPU: Snapdragon® G3x Gen 2 Gaming Platform丨Up to 15W Power Draw
  • GPU: Adreno™ A32 GPU with up to 1Ghz Clock Frequency
  • Design: Featuring Matte All-Metal CNC Middle Frame丨”Fishbone” Biomimetic Design for Heat Dissipation丨Unimaginably Thin & Light, making it a Portable 14mm Gaming Marvel
  • Display: 6″ 1440P Borderless Mirror Screen, IPS (1440P for the Special Edition | 1080P for the Standard Edition)        
  • Storage: Up to 1TB丨Catering to Extensive Gaming and Application Storage Needs
  • RAM: Up to 16GB

As you can see, it’s a bit of a beast when it comes to specs, using top-of-the-line components from Qualcomm, as well as having sufficient RAM for even the toughest emulation situations. (Some Switch games require 12GB of RAM to run well).

AYANEO plans to launch the Pocket S on Indiegogo this coming April, we’ll receive more details, such as pricing, at that time.
