AOKZOE A2 Handheld Powered By Ryzen 7 7840U & 32GB LPDDR5X-7500 Memory To Launch On December 22nd For $699

AOKZOE, renowned among Chinese portable gaming console manufacturers, has a longstanding track record of creating AMD-powered devices. Nevertheless, the handheld gaming scene shifted this year with the emergence of competitively priced alternatives like the ASUS ROG Ally and Lenovo Legion Go systems. AOKZOE aims to shake up this market with the upcoming release of its A2 console.

In contrast to the 8-inch display of the A1 PRO, this model features a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1920×1200. While it boasts a higher resolution than the ROG Ally, this is due to the screen utilizing a different aspect ratio. AOKZOE officially highlights a “bezel-less” design as a key marketing feature, although the accuracy of this claim may be debatable.

Gamers can choose between the Ryzen 7 6800U with Zen3+/RDNA2 or the Ryzen 7 7840U with Zen4/RDNA3. While it lacks the Hawk Point APU, the shared socket compatibility and nearly identical specifications suggest that AOKZEO will probably introduce consoles based on the Ryzen 8040 in the future.

Arguably the most prominent feature of this system is its 32 GB LPDDR5X-7500 memory, a step up from the A1 PRO’s 6400 MT/s speed. While the 32 GB capacity is the minimum offered, it’s noteworthy that this is double the memory compared to the ROG Ally or Legion Go, both priced ‘technically’ the same.

A2 Price

When it comes to pricing, the company introduced its A1 PRO portable device with the Ryzen 7 7840U in April of this year. It includes 32GB of memory and 512GB of default storage, initially priced at $799 during the AOKZEO crowdfunding campaign, with a regular retail price set at $999. Interestingly, for the A2 system launch, the company isn’t providing an official MSRP once the console becomes available elsewhere.

Specs List

The early bird price is actually $100 lower than the A1 Pro’s $799, to be precise. If one were to make an educated guess, the official MSRP should be similar.
