The AYANEO Pocket S is shaking things up with its compact 6-inch display that boasts a crisp 2K resolution. It’s not just any screen; we’re talking about a vibrant IPS LCD touchscreen that brings your games to life. Under the hood, the Pocket S is quite the powerhouse, offering configurations up to 16GB of RAM and a massive 1TB of storage space for all your gaming needs.

Now, here’s where things get interesting. Unlike its predecessors that rocked AMD chips, the Pocket S is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon G3x Gen 2 processor. And instead of running on Windows like many of its siblings, this gadget embraces Android, promising a slimmer, lighter, and potentially more wallet-friendly experience. While AYANEO has been a bit hush-hush on the price tag, the specs alone are stirring up excitement.

This 15-watt beast comes equipped with 8 Kryo CPU cores and a 1 GHz Adreno A32 GPU, coupled with a fan for that extra cooling boost during intense gaming sessions.

AYANEO didn’t just stop at the internals; they’ve also added a clever hardware button that lets you toggle between performance modes. Whether you’re after max performance, a balance between power and battery, or just trying to extend your playtime, there’s a mode for you. This feature tweaks the processor’s behavior and fan speed to suit your needs.

But that’s not all. The Pocket S sports a sturdy metal frame and a slim profile, measuring just about 14mm in thickness without considering the grips. It comes fully loaded with gaming controls, including dual RGB backlit analog sticks, a D-Pad, action buttons, shoulder triggers, a six-axis gyroscope, and vibration motors, all designed to enhance your gaming experience. The use of hall sensors for the joysticks and triggers ensures precise control.

For connectivity and security, there’s a USB-C port at the bottom and a nifty fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button. This isn’t just another handheld; it’s a statement in the gaming world, blending performance, portability, and style. The AYANEO Pocket S is shaping up to be a game-changer, and I can’t wait to see how it stacks up once it hits the market.
