The latest mini-laptop from One Netbook is a computer with a 7 inch display, a backlit keyboard, a big exhaust fan in the back, and a set of detachable game controllers that can be connected to the side of the system.

The One GX is designed to be a handheld gaming computer, and later this year One Netbook plans to ship a model with an Intel Tiger Lake processor and Intel Xe graphics. But Tiger Lake chips aren’t ready to go yet, so the company plans to begin shipping a less powerful version in August.

When that version of the One GX goes up for pre-order on June 29th, it’ll have a 7 watt Intel Core i5-10210Y quad-core processor with Intel UHD graphics. But it’ll also be available with something you don’t often find on mini-laptops: support for cellular networks.

One Netbook will offer optional 4G LTE and 5G modules. Readers have been asking me about network support since the One GX was first announced, and I haven’t had any answers… until now. One Netbook is shipping me a One GX prototype, and it’ll come with the 4G LTE modem most likely to be used in models of the little laptop set to ship in North America.

As far as I can tell, it should support most US wireless networks to some degree — although it lacks Band 17 and 71 support, which could have an impact on AT&T and T-Mobile coverage, respectively.

  1. It’d be great if a company comes out with a handheld UMPC with built-in LTE. For example, if GPD adds LTE to their MicroPC, then I’d definitely buy it.

  2. Do you know what LTE modem is used? Any info on potential speeds (ie. LTE-Advanced Category ).

    1. I suspect it will be the Quectel Wireless Ethernet Adapter. because thats the one I have on the MIX 3.

      1. hi. how did you get a model of the mix 3 with 4g lte? and how can i get it, if possible?

  3. As a Verizon user as well, this is great news.

    Will the One GX 4G be available without the game controllers (ie. cheaper)? I don’t care about the gaming aspect of this device.

    1. If there was a non-controller version of the US 4G model, I’d opt for that one too. It’ll offset the cost of 4G for me since I wouldn’t be using this for gaming and those controllers will just be collecting dust.

    2. A cheaper “non-gaming” 4G model would be great. No controllers and no ugly red color. Glad to see US carriers are mostly supported.

    3. If you dont care about the gaming part of it, you better get the mix 3S. or the 1S.

      1. Is that an official LTE version or did someone hack it in and sold them? My info is really old but I recall reading that One Netbook abandoned the One Mix 3s LTE model due to bad signal performance. Someone (not One Netbook) then later installed a modem, antenna, etc.

        Where did you get your One Mix 3S LTE? What LTE bands does it support?

  4. Thanks for the One GX LTE band update! If this turns out to be what the final product supports (Verizon for me), then my Surface Go 2 LTE purchase has now been changed to a One GX LTE purchase.

    What online distributors does One Netbook typically use for US sales?
