Aya Neo is a Nintendo switch-style handheld gaming PC that promises to offer a full-fledged PC gaming experience in the palm of your hands. The Aya Neo – a handheld handheld gaming console – is now available to back on indiegogogogo, starting at $ 6,120 HKD ($ 789).
The Neo is technically the second, following the limited, sold-out run of the’founder’s edition’ that Aya offered back in January. The new, broader release promises several improvements over that initial version.
The company also showed off a new optional $ 47 dock that adds two USB 3.2 gen 1 Type-A ports, one HDMI port, one SD card slot, one microSD card slot.
Aya Neo has a 7-inch 1280×800 IPS display, a 10-25w AMD ryzen 4500u CPU, 16GB of lpddr4x RAM, three USB-C ports, and up to 6 hours of estimated battery life.
The Aya Neo is still a crowdfunded product from a first time company. There’s still the usual elements of risk when it comes to crowdfunded products.
The 1TB model is about 10 percent off of what the products are planned to sell for after the crowdfunding campaign. Shipping is planned for may.
