Chinese mini PC maker One Netbook has introduced a third version of its ONEXPLAYER Mini handheld gaming PC. The first model hit the streets in January with an Intel Core i7-1195G7 Tiger Lake processor under the hood. It was followed earlier this month with an AMD powered model sporting a Ryzen 7 5800U processor.
Now One Netbook has introduced a new model sporting an Intel Core i7-1260P Alder Lake-P processor. It’s up for pre-order in China for 7,999 CCNY (~$1255) and up, and it’s not only the processor that makes this model stand out.
Like other ONEXPLAYER Mini devices, the latest version features a 7 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen display surrounded by game controllers. But it’s a Gundam-themed device with a custom paint job inspired by the classic anime.
The ONEXPLAYER Mini Gundam RX-78-2 is also the first device from One Netbook to feature a 12th-gen Intel Core chip. The company has opted for 28-watt, 12-core, 16-thread processor with four Performance and 8 Efficient cores and Intel Iris Xe graphics with 96 execution units and support for GPU speeds up to 1.4 GHz.
Other features include USB4 ports, PCIE 3.0 x4 NVMe storage, LPDDR5-5200 memory, a 48Wh battery with 100-watt fast charging, support for WiFi 6, active cooling. The handheld computer weighs 619 grams (about 1.4 pounds) and measures 260 x 106 x 23mm (10.2″ x 4.2″ x 0.9″), making it considerably smaller and a little lighter than a Steam Deck, although I suspect that last number refers to the thinnest point of the handheld and doesn’t account for the way the rounded grips take up more space on the sides.
The starting price is for a model with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, but customers can also pre-order a model with 2TB of storage for 8,999 CNY (~$1415).

I really hope the resurrect the OneGx1 line. I have the OneGx1 Pro LTE. It’s not too big that cause it to be awkward to play and the built-in LTE has been very nice.
It certainly needs improvements in several places but I hope they make another and not make it bigger. If they can somehow make it smaller (ie. shrink that backside), then that’d be even better.
I really hope they make a new version and make it the same or smaller size. The AMD APUs do pretty well when forcing to lower TDPs. I’d be okay with that.
I’m UMPC and handheld gaming fan so I was definitely within the target audience for it. I got the LTE version as well when it was available on Amazon via an official reseller (at least based on One’s site). I don’t have any build/quality issues but One does need to iterate on the design and I hope they do. I’d buy the LTE version as well.
Thunderbolt certified on USB4? I would love to have a portable gaming computer that I could dock to an eGPU on my desk.
From their site shows that both C ports are Thunderbolt 4 certified which is really nice, since that’s one on the top next to the USB A, and one on the bottom lessening the chance that they’re using the same controller chip as well. REALLY giving us a lot of expandability. can use the top for an eGPU and the bottom inside a docking station to give us more ports.
Oooo, I love this version, especially the ABXY buttons that matches the layout of the Xbox controller, wish the price is lower though. I’ve got a long wait for my Steam Deck but I’m totally open to a better handheld gaming device.
