The ONEXPLAYER line of portable gaming computers is growing. After launching the original model with an 8.4-inch display and an Intel Tiger Lake processor earlier this year, One Netbook followed with an AMD edition in November.
The following ? the ONEXPLAYER Mini, which is a smaller model with an Intel processor and a 7 inch screen. It was recently pre-ordered in Japan and is expected to start shipping worldwide soon. But now that some people in Japan have been able to get their hands on the Mini, we have a better idea of ââhow much smaller it is than the original.
We already knew from the datasheet that the ONEXPLAYER Mini was physically smaller and lighter than the 8.4 inch models, albeit a bit thicker:
|ONEXPLAYER Mini||7 inch||262 x 108 x 23 mm||589 grams|
|UNEXPLAYER||8.4 inch||280 x 128 x 25 mm||825 grams|
But it can be difficult to get an idea of ââwhat that looks like just based on numbers.
Fortunately, recent PC Watch and Daily Gadget reviews include a few shots of the 7-inch ONEXPLAYER Mini alongside the 8.4-inch model. Overall, it really looks like it should be a bit more comfortable to hold in your handsâ¦ if you’re willing to ditch a larger, higher-res display that’s also apparently a bit brighter.
Helpfully, Daily Gadget also added a Nintendo Switch to the comparison, making it clear that even the new Mini model is wider than Nintendo’s handheld game console.
The ONEXPLAYER Mini features a 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen, Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB to 2TB of PCIe 3.0 x3 NVMe solid-state storage.
It also has two USB4 Type-C ports, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, a 3.5mm audio jack, front-facing stereo speakers, a 10,455mAh battery. and support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
