Retro cool, the AYANEO FLIP KB and FLIP DS are powered by the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U APU (up to 28W) and a 'brand-new flagship processor' that we assume will be announced at CES 2024. AYANEO's latest high-end Windows gaming handheld might be its most stylish, with one version with a full keyboard and one with a second display - like the iconic Nintendo DS.

Although the keyboard is small on the AYANEO FLIP KB, the key spacing is nice, and there's even a fingertip mouse. Throw in RGB backlighting, and it's a portable PC with game controller buttons, hall sensing sticks, triggers, and a d-pad.

The main display for the AYANEO FLIP KB and FLIP DS sounds impressive: 7-inch Full HD with a 120 Hz refresh rate, 100% sRGB coverage, and a 400-nit overall peak brightness. It's AYANEO's first gaming handheld to feature a 120 Hz IPS display. The AYANEO FLIP DS includes an additional 3.5-inch touch display - detected by Windows as a second display.

The second screen can display core features of the AYASpace application for monitoring and tweaking performance, one-click access to apps, and actions like taking screenshots, with the ability to switch freely between the main and secondary screens. With retro gaming-inspired design, there'll be 'dual screen retro games' support.

Back to the main display, it opens to a full 180 degrees, with the option to lock in at 120, 150, and 180 degrees. Storage-wise and input-wise, there's full USB4 Type-C, USB 3.2 Type-C, M.2 2230 PCIe Gen4 storage, and UHS-II Level TF card slot.

It's certainly high-end stuff for a Windows gaming handheld. The Indiegogo pre-launch page for the AYANEO FLIP KB and FLIP DS is live, so expect early bird pricing, additional specs, and other information to drop soon.
