The AYA Neo Air Plus is a compact handheld gaming PC with a 6 inch display and a compact design that makes it just a bit wider than a Nintendo Switch Lite, but powerful enough to handle most PC games.

Earlier this month AYA began taking pre-orders through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that’s still running. Unlike most handheld gaming PCs, which are available with one or two processor options, the Air Plus comes with four: a 12th-gen Intel Core i3 chip, two different AMD Mendocino processor options, or an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U chips But now the company says it will offer a Ryzen 7000 series processor option later this year.

Customers who have already backed the crowdfunding campaign for the Ryzen 7 6800U model will get a new option to wait for the Ryzen 7000 model and have that shipped instead, for no extra charge.

You can also still score an early bird deal on a Ryzen 7 model that will let you pick up a system with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage for $790 or pay about $100 to $200 more for 16GB/1TB or 32GB/1TB models.

There’s also a 32GB/2TB version going for just under $1200 during crowdfunding, but at that price you might be better off picking up a lower-cost model and upgrading the storage yourself.

AYA’s suggested retail prices for these models range from $980 to $1400.

Each model has a 46.2 Wh battery, joysticks and analog triggers with hall sensors, 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS LCD displays with up to 400 nits brightness, and bodies that weigh around 525 grams.

Meanwhile AYA is also introducing a speaker upgrade kit for last year’s AYA Neo Air, a compact handheld gaming PC with a 5.5 inch, 1080p OLED display and an AMD Ryzen 5000U series processor.

The company says there will be two ways to get the upgrade: send your AYA Neo Air to the company to have AYA swap out speakers, or have a self-service repair kit shipped to you. The Aya Neo Air Upgrade kit should be available in mid-May, 2023.
