Intel’s Meteor Lake chips promise longer battery life and better graphics performance than the company’s previous-gen mobile processors. So it’s not surprising that laptop makers aren’t the only companies using the new chips.

Handheld gaming PC maker One Netbook has begun to tease an upcoming handheld powered by an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor based on Meteor Lake architecture. The ONEXPLAYER X1 will go up for pre-order soon through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.

In a brief teaser video, the company shows a device with a 10.95 inch, 2.5K LTPS LCD display featuring a 120 Hz refresh rate, Harman-certified stereo speakers, and an Intel Core Ultra processor.

According to a report from Chinese news site ITHome, the tablet will support 32GB or 64GB of LPDDR5x-7500 memory. And in a post on the One Netbook Discord, the company says that the device will have a fingerprint reader, support for Windows Hello face recognition (suggesting it has an IR camera) and an Oculink port for 63 Gbps connections to external graphics docks like the ONEXGPU.

While the computer shown in the video looks like a tablet, the company is describing it as a “new handheld” on social media, and on the sides there appear to be connectors that could allow you to attach controllers to the sides, much the way you can with a ONEXPLAYER 2 (or Nintendo Switch).

While One Netbook doesn’t provide many other details about the upcoming computer, the preview page for the crowdfunding campaign indicates that it has a 16-core Intel Core Ultra 7 processor with 6 Performance cores capable of hitting CPU speeds up to 4.8 GHz, which means it’s almost certainly a Core Ultra 7 155H processor, which matches all of those specs.

The chip also has 8 Efficiency cores, 2 Low-Power Efficiency cores, a 2.25 GHz Intel ARC integrated GPU with 8 Xe cores, and an integrated neural processing unit.

One Netbook got its start five or six years ago with a line of tiny laptop computers, thus the name “One Netbook.” But the company has really embraced the portable gaming space in recent years, with its ONEXPLAYER line.

And while the upcoming ONEXPLAYER X1 isn’t the company’s first tablet, it’s positioned as the first meant to be used as both a mobile gaming system and a general-purpose computer, so the company is positioning it as the first in a new OneXPlorer Series of devices.

More details about the ONEXPLAYER X1 should be available closer to launch.

  1. So the controller connects wirelessly using that goofy white USB dongle? Is this a joke?

    Is this just a white-label product that they didn’t have a hand in making, and they’re combining it with a cheap tablet controller?

    1. Obviously it is some kind of testing prototype to demonstrate (as video described) device performance, not general user experience. It seems that they not yet finished their own controller design, so the used some second-party controller.

      It would be actually great if it were some “white-label product”, as it would mean that there are another maker who’s making sub-11″ tablets with decent laptop specs beside One Netbook. But that’s not the case.

  2. wtf is this pile of poo? I looked at the pics just long enough to not care enough about reading what the ewaste doesd

  3. I already own the original onexplayer 1s and to be frank, I’ve loved it and nothing’s gone wrong. It’s now limited with modern AAA games by that XE graphics chip, so I felt an upgrade was due, but tried the ally and after coming from an 8.4 inch screen to the ally’s 7, I just couldn’t deal with windows 11. Other option was obviously the legion go, but too many compromises for me at this point and I decided to see what else could come out in 2024. This X1 peaks my interest. Concerns are with the battery life as after watching a Phawx video, he basically said that Intel’s meteor lake chip consumes more than AMD’s Z1, so the battery has to be huge and heavy in this X1. That would make it a beast to carry around unless OneNetbook has performed some kind of weight reducing miracle with the internals or found a way to equal the battery life of the Z1 tweaking the meteor lake chip. Still, I’m curious about the dimensions, how the controllers fit and how they look on this and the overall weight of the device. More information as it comes out is either going to make or break my interest in this X1.

  4. 64 gigs seems utterly wasted, by the time that amount of RAM would be required for anything you would actually want to do on a 10″ device the rest of it would be hopelessly outdated. Even 32 GB is a bit too much, but I guess they have to one-up the competition.

    1. While I agree that 64 is probably unnecessary I have to wonder just how much RAM the integrated graphics can use as VRAM, or how much the NPU can use assuming anything remotely heavy or socially significant ends up using it. I know there used to be limits, but I don’t really see anything indicating what they’d be on Intel’s product page.

  5. Whelp, time to drop whatever this costs to get it because this is basically my dream device.
    – Tablet for sketching, 3D modeling, and note taking
    – Laptop for coding, emails, and work stuff (the back is a little “loud” but my workplace is fairly laid back so that shouldn’t be an issue)
    – Handheld for gaming (I have a Win Max 2 so I’m used to heavy devices)

    This thing just looks PERFECT for me
