Update 7/31/23: Added in launch time and confirmation that the OneXFly will go on the OnexPlayer store after Crowdfunding.
A direct competitor to the Steam Deck and ROG Ally is coming soon and the price just got a whole lot better. The OneXFly, the newest Windows handheld PC from One-Netbook, has hit its crowdfunding goal of 2,000 supporters, which means we are getting some very appealing prices that could put it in the running to get over the devices.
With the new crowdfunding goal being hit, the cheapest model of the 7840U-powered device, with 16gb of RAM and a 512gb SSD, is going to have a $739 crowdfunding price. This means if you buy the device during the Indiegogo/crowdfunding period, that is the price you will pay. With the AMD 7840U powering the handheld, it will have power that is similar to the Ally and have the same space as the Ally and Deck. And for only $40 more than the Ally, this could be an amazing second choice.
On paper, the OneXFly has a bit of a leg up on the Ally. Not only does it have the same power, it also has a similar 1080p IPS display with a refresh rate of 120hz. On top of that, the RAM it has is a bit faster, it is slightly smaller and lighter, and has two USB-C ports and a USB-A port, as well as a Micro SD card slot. I am especially happy about this since one USB-C port is on the top and one is on the bottom. I loved having this in the AYANEO AIR Plus, so seeing it continue is fantastic.
With the crowdfunding hit, the other models of the OneXFly, which have an increase RAM and SSD size, are also being reduced too. And I will admit, a 64gb RAM model with a 4tb SSD sounds really excessively amazing:
- 7840U-32GB+1TB: $889 (was $949)
- 7840U-32GB+2TB: $969 (was $1,029)
- 7840U-64GB+2TB: $1199 (was $1,259)
- 7840U-64GB+4TB: $1299 (was $1,359)
You can also get the Elite Package, which includes a bag, screen protector, and 128gb Micro SD, for $9.90.
OneXFly is in pre-launch right now on Indiegogo, but it will be available on August 10th at 8am PT/11am ET. Personally, I am extremely excited to see what the device can do. It sounds fantastic on paper, so I will be looking forward to seeing it in practice. After the crowdfunding campaign, the device is expected to go live on the OneXPlayer store.
