One X Fly, The Latest 7″ Handheld Competing with ROG Ally

Update 28-Jun-2023: One Netbook responded to my screen inquiry. It is a MIPI display and therefore will not support variable refresh rate. It will have 120 and 60 Hz refresh rates out of box. I am hoping my software Handheld Control Panel can add other refresh rates so we can set a whole bunch of them depending on the game.

One X Fly by One Netbook is the latest Windows gaming handheld to compete with the Asus ROG Ally. While not all the specs have been released, we got a decent chunk of information available to work with.

First off, this is a 7″ handheld device, much like the One X Player Mini lineup. The screen features 120 Hz refresh rate at 1080p. I asked One Netbook if the screen is going to support variable refresh rate (VRR) and if it is a landscape screen. I will update this if the information becomes available.

At the heart of this device is a AMD Ryzen 7 7840U featuring 8 cores/16 threads of zen 4 architecture and 12 RDNA 3 gpu cores clocking up to 2700 MHz. This device should perform similar to the ROG Ally’s Z1 Extreme processor. Another great feature about this chip is the built in USB4, which One Netbook has confirmed this device will also support. That means thunderbolt eGPUs will be supported.

Another new feature are the two built in customized RBG wing emblems located on the bottom left and right. It is unclear if these are changeable from the One X Player console software.

Up top there are two new buttons added that function as programable buttons. Based on the size of the LB and RB buttons, I expect these buttons to be more comfortable to reach than competitors products. There is also a USB A, USB C, and headphone port on top. The USB C port is likely USB4 enabled.

On the bottom there are down firing speakers. These speakers are being cited as certified by Harman AudioEFX. If the speakers are similar to the One X Player 2’s Harman speakers, it should deliver good quality sound for the size. There is also a micro SD card slot and another USB C port, which is likely also USB4 enabled.

One X Player eGPU

This device would pair very nicely with One Netbook’s upcoming eGPU. There aren’t many details announced about this yet.

The One X Fly will be initially crowdfunded on Indiegogo. You can see the campaign preview here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/onexfly/coming_soon
