It’s only been a few months since the One Mix Yoga mini laptop hit the streets, but the folks at One Netbook are already getting ready to launch a 2nd-gen model.

The upcoming One Mix 2 is expected to have the same 7 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen display as its predecessor, the same 360-degree hinge that lets you use the computer in notebook or tablet modes, and the same support for a pressure-sensitive pen.

But the new model has a number of under-the-hood upgrades.

I’m not sure all of the specs have been finalized yet, but it looks like the One Mix 2 will be available with up to an Intel Core M3-8100Y processor, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of PCIe solid state storage.

By comparison, the first-gen One Mix Yoga had an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of eMMC storage.

When I tested the original I was impressed with the overall design, but underwhelmed by the tiny computer’s performance. The upgraded processor and storage should theoretically go a long way to address those concerns.

The One Mix 2 is also expected to have a USB Type-C port for charging and data (the original used a micro USB port).

Other features that remain largely unchanged include a USB 3.0 Type-A port, a micro HDMI port, and a microSD card slot, the 360-degree hinge, an optical mouse sensor instead of a touchpad, and support for 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity when using a digital pen.

The One Mix 2 chassis has the same dimensions as the One Mix Yoga: 182mm x 110mm x 17mm (7.2″ x 4.3″ x 0.7″).

You may have noticed that I said the system supports “up to” an 8th-gen Core M3 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage. The company is also planning to offer an entry-level model with a Core M3-7Y30 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

The company is also said to be working on a beta version with a Core i5-7Y54 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, but I don’t expect that model to be sold through retail channels.

Update: It looks like One Netbook will offer all three processor options for the retail model, so you’ll have a choice of Core i3-7Y30, Core i5-7Y54, and Core i3-8100Y processors. 

The One Mix 2 is also expected to have a fingerprint sensor which the original did not. And it may be available in a choice of silver or black color options.

But One Netbook hasn’t decided yet whether the computer will have a backlit keyboard like its predecessor — the company is trying to cram as much as possible into this tiny computer without generating more heat than the fan can dissipate. 

A few videos showing off an early prototype have also been posted online:

One Netbook hasn’t announced the price or release date for the new model yet. But the original One Mix Yoga sold for about $460 at launch, and you can currently pick one up for:

  1. As a One Mix Yoga 1 owner, I will be excited to get this. I can’t wait to see how GPD responds.

  2. Just got my GPD pocket 2 today,this is the fist UMPC i have and so far i quite impressed with it but the Optical Mouse Sensor not working 🙁
    And now i know about One Mix 2 make me very interesting about it,better CPU,more Ram,backlit keyboard…can’t wait to see it performance

    1. The pointing device is the only thing that I do not like about the One Mix 1. It is great with the pen and the touch screen

      1. I’m looking to buy the one mix 2, and I was wondering how is the pen working with this tablet, more specially, when you got your hand on the tablet. How is the palm detection?

        Does this have a glass screen or plastic screen?

  3. Both M3s are essentially the same damned chip, it’s just that the 8th gen one is an overclocked version. Hopefully people who go for the expensive model are going for the increased RAM (I think 16 GB is unnecessary for such a low end product though) and increased storage, because they really shouldn’t expect much of a performance upgrade otherwise.

    1. Anyway, for the first time ever, GPD has ACTUAL competition in the UMPC space instead of just low cost alternatives.
      Hopefully we’ll see competition in the gaming UMPC sector someday. AT LEAST a low cost alternative would be nice to see (with a Pentium Silver at least, no more Cherry Trail please). And Pyra doesn’t count as either category. It’s too expensive to be considered a low cost alternative (it costs more than the Win 2) and it is too weak (and has to many other variables about it) to be considered competition. It’s in a niche all on its own, similarly to Nintendo’s past few home consoles; not something you get if you want to play the majority of major and minor games currently available, but something you only get if you’re truly into what it offers.

  4. I’d be interested in this if they offer an LTE option. For now, I’m eyeing the Surface Go with LTE but a smaller device would be nice.

  5. This pretty much addresses all my complaints about both the first version of this device and the GPD Pocket. Unless the price is exorbitant, I’ll probably pick one up, it’s almost exactly what I want in a small computer. Take notes, GPD.

    1. I remember when UMPCs were a thing. This is essentially the ultimate dream UMPC. Aside from cellular connectivity and Wacom EMR, you literally cannot top this with the current available technologies. Barring any hardware issues, they really knocked this out of the park.

  6. Brad, do you know which pen technology the One Mix Yoga and (presumably) One Mix Yoga 2 both use? Wacom AES? N-trig/MPP? Something else?

      1. Cool. Thanks! I’m also checking with some One Mix Yoga owners on TabletPCReview. If I get word back before you hopefully get a review unit, I will try making it a point to post their answer here.

  7. Nice. Much to my amazement, this looks like a viable temporary substitute until Project Andromeda/the Surface Phone materializes
