Chinese PC and tablet maker Alldocube plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign soon for a device that’s not really a standalone PC or tablet.

The Alldocube Expand X is a portable display that can bring a second screen to your laptop, tablet, smartphone, or even a game console. It’s battery-powered, which means you can use it anywhere. And it also supports a detachable keyboard, which makes it sort of a pseudo-laptop.

You can’t actually buy the Alldocube Expand X yet, but you can sign up at the company’s website to get an email when the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign begins.

“Super early bird” backers will be able to reserve the portable display + keyboard for $199. It’s unclear how many folks will be able to get that price though, or how much you’ll have to pay if you’re not in the super early bird group.

While this is hardly the first portable monitor announced in recent years, it looks like an interesting addition to the space for a few reasons. It’s a high-resolution touchscreen display with a built-in kickstand, USB-C, HDMI, and audio ports, and a pogo pin adapter on the bottom for the detachable “smart leather keyboard.”

Here are some key specs:

Screen 13.3 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel IPS capacitive touchscreen
USB ports 1 x USB 3.0 Type-C

1 x USB 2.0 Type-C

A/V ports 1 x Mini HDMI input

1 x 3.5mm audio

Other connectors 5-pin pogo keyboard connector
Battery 10,000 mAh
Charging USB-C charger w/QC 4.0 & USB PD 2.0 support
Dimensions 316mm x 202mm x 10mm (12.4″ x 8″ x 0.4″)
Weight 916 grams (2 pounds)

  1. After being royally screwed on my last Indiegogo campaign, which they’re still running despite the fact it is an obvious fraud, I’ll never contribute to another campaign at Indiegogo. I’ve had no problem with Kickstarters, but Indiegogo is a no go as far as I’m concerned.

  2. These are the specs I’ve been waiting for in a portable monitor. The only thing that could be better is if it were 15.6″, but I’m really dreaming with that.
