The AYANEO Pocket S has launched. It's a new flagship Android gaming handheld that is slim, sleek, and powered by the Snapdragon G3x Gen 2 gaming platform. The physical design and form factor are more smartphone than PC gaming handheld, with the AYANEO Pocket S sporting a thin 14mm body with a lightweight 350-gram build.

It's a low-power device, too, with its long-lasting 6000mAh battery powering the Snapdragon G3x Gen 2's efficient 15W gaming performance. Although thin, there is an active cooling system here, which makes sense when the GPU is clocked at 1 GHz and the 8-core Kryo CPU reaches up to 3.36GHz.

Throw in 16GB of memory and 1TB of storage, and it's an impressive unit. AYANEO claims that it outperforms pretty much any Android gaming handheld or gaming phone. The AYANEO Pocket S is available in two flavors: one with a 6-inch 1440p screen that will begin shipping in May 2024 and a 1080p edition that will ship at the end of June 2024.
