GPD XP Plus Modular Handheld Game Console with MediaTek Dimensity 1200, WiFi 6 and Android

The GPD XP is an Android-powered handheld gaming device that features a 6.8-inch touchscreen surrounded by cam controllers – but the controller on the right side is modular, allowing you to swap out controls depending on the type of game you’re playing. play.

When the GPD XP was first launched last year, it was powered by a MediaTek Helio G95 processor, but now a new GPD XP Plus is ready for pre-order via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. It has a more powerful processor, faster storage, and improved Wi-Fi speeds.

First announced in March, the GPD XP Plus is available in two configurations: 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $339 during crowdfunding or 6GB/256GB for $374. The crowdfunding runs until the end of July, and the handheld game console is expected to start shipping in August 2022.

The new model features the same physical design as its predecessor, but is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor, which is expected to boost CPU and graphics performance.

Storage has been upgraded from UFS 2.1 to UFS 3.1 and wireless capabilities have been upgraded from WiFi 5 to WiFi 6. GPD says the memory speed is also now 4266MHz and the new model supports support 30W fast charging (instead of 20W).

The new model also has a USB Type-C port that supports video output up to 4K resolutions at 60Hz or 1080p at up to 168Hz if you want to connect the handheld to an external display.

Although the company has not confirmed other specifications, it is likely that other features such as the screen, camera, buttons, speakers and sensors will remain unchanged. So I have only highlighted the specs that we to know are different in the comparison table below:

GPD says the company considered using Qualcomm’s recently announced Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 processor, which is designed specifically for mobile gaming devices, but ultimately determined it was unsuitable due to “known restrictions policy and high price”.
