GPD are at it again. And this time around, the Chinese company took at dig at what they see as their closest competitor for the GPD Win 4 – the Steam Deck.
On the product page for the Win 4, GPD mention that it will be “better than Steam Deck”. Quite a claim, that — time will tell whether or not the Win 4 lives up to it.
Besides that — and to cut to the chase — we are now also aware of the full GPD Win 4 specifications.
The Windows-and-Steam OS-powered handheld is all set to debut with the Radeon 680M and Ryzen 7 6800U, making it one of the more high-ticket releases this season.
Let’s have a deeper look.
GPD Win 4 Specifications
- 6-inch 1920 x 1080p IPS display
- Radeon 680M and Ryzen 7 6800U
- 16GB/32GB RAM variants
- 1TB/2TB SSD storage with microSD expansion
- 45.62 Wh battery
- 4G LTE support
Right off the bat, the Win 4 will feature a 6-inch, full HD (1920 x 1080p) IPS display. Interestingly, it will be one of the few handhelds to also feature DC dimming.
With a 40Hz/60Hz refresh rate, the GPD Win 4 will feature Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection to offer a degree of scratch resistance.
Under the hood, the GPD Win 4 will feature the Radeon 680M and Ryzen 7 6800U in tandem along with 16GB/32GB LPDDR5-6400 RAM. Along with that, there’s also a microSD expansion slot.
Storage on the Win 4 is taken care of by a PCIe Gen 4.0 x4 SSD, which is expected to feature 1TB and 2TB variants. Powering it all will be a 45.62 Wh battery.
GPD seem to be going all in with input controls on the Win 4. For instance, there’s hall sensor joysticks, with an optical finger navigation system in tow.
Interestingly enough, GPD might promote another use case for the Win 4 with the optional dock as you can see above.
There’s at least two colors that we will see, in Black and White.
GPD Win 4: Launch date and Price
With a launch date set for sometime in December this year, the GPD Win 4 is certainly going to be one to look out for. If you’re interested, we have a list of the best upcoming handhelds you can check out!
As for the pricing, there’s no official word yet. Given the internals on offer — and the minimum storage at 1TB — it’s certainly not going to be the cheapest handheld around.
There’s a bunch of retro handhelds under $150 if you’re looking to pick up something a little lighter on the pocket!
