The AOKZOE A1 is a handheld gaming PC with an 8 inch FHD+ display, an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor, and at least 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. First introduced last summer, it’s now available for $859 and up following last year’s Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

Now the company behind the handheld has begun teasing two new models: an AOKZOE A1 Pro with a newer AMD Ryzen 7 7000 series processor, and an AOKZOE A2 with a new design and a smaller 7 inch display.

And… honestly that’s about all the company has stated publicly so far. We don’t know which AMD 7000 chip the new handhelds will use, so it’s unclear whether to expect the modest performance boost that would come from a move to a Ryzen 7035 series “Rembrandt-R chip with the same architecture as the Ryzen 7 6800U (Zen 3+ CPU cores and RDNA 2 graphics) or the bigger boost that would come from a move to Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” chips (with Zen 4 CPU cores and RDNA 3 graphics).

But AOKZOE has posted a few videos for the A1 Pro including a teaser that shows a physical design that’s nearly identical to that of last year’s A1 and a game play video showing Elden Ring on the A1 Pro.

The new handheld is expected to keep some of the key features of the original A1, including an 8 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel IPS LCD display, USB4 and USB 3.0 ports, game controllers with hall sensor joysticks and analog triggers, RGB lighting effects, a 65Wh battery and a 100W USB-C power adapter for fast charging.

Other specs include two USB 4 ports, one USB 3.0 port, a body that weighs 729 grams (about 1.6 pounds), and support for an optional keyboard accessory.

The upcoming AOKZOE A2 is expected to have similar controllers, but a more compact footprint thanks to a 7 inch screen.

AOKZOE appears to be closely related to One Netbook, the maker of the ONEXPLAYER line of handheld gaming PCs, but AOKZOE products tend to be a little cheaper than ONEXPLAYER handhelds. So maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that the first pictures of the AOKZOE 2 I’ve seen looks very similar to the ONEXFLY handheld that One netbook announced last year (but which has yet to come to market).

The company is currently asking for volunteers interested in helping to test the AOKZOE A1 Pro before release to sign up to express interest in joining a test program.

AOKZOE has posted preview pages for its upcoming Indiegogo crowdfunding campaigns for the AOKZOE A1 Pro and AOKZOE A2.

  1. Don’t bother. This company is awful and doesn’t support their products. Mine died within a week of use and I can’t get any response from support.

    1. The comments and posts on /r/aokzoe on Reddit don’t look very encouraging. At least 80% of the posts are reporting some kind of major issue.

      After reading the posts there, the impression I have of Aokzoe is that their first attempt at making a product went so catastrophically wrong, that they will probably disappear.

      Yet here they are making another product.

      1. They are here again to try scamming people with more shovelware hardware that they have no intention of designing to last or providing warranty support for.
