ONE XPLAYER Mini - A Handheld Gaming PC Overview
For users who like to play games with handheld consoles, they should know that a handheld console with a good gaming experience should contain the following elements: flagship performance, portable size, powerful battery life, and a "non-specific" system. However, in the current domestic game handheld market, there are not many handheld products that can integrate all the above requirements. The domestic brand ONE-NETBOOK launched a new product ONE XPLAYER Mini version on December. In fact, this is an upgrade from the previous version. On the basis of continuing the performance configuration, the size and weight of the machine have been reduced, and the system software, battery life, heat dissipation, etc. have also been upgraded. So what are the features of this newly released handheld? Let's take a look together.
First of all, in terms of appearance, the mini version of the OnexPlayer has shrunk from the 8.4-inch screen of the previous generation to 7 inches, and the weight of the whole machine has been reduced from the original 819g to 589g, making it smaller and lighter. Everyday, you can play games on the bus, subway commuting, airport, and train station on business trips. What is the concept of 589g? Here you can compare it with the Steam Deck handheld. They are also 7-inch handhelds. The ONE XPLAYER Mini version is 12% lighter and 20.7% smaller than the Steam Deck (670g).
The ONE XPLAYER Mini handheld uses an integrated gamepad design, equipped with ALPS original gaming joystick, 7.5mm height, 18-degree inclination angle, I believe the actual control feel should be good. In addition, in terms of shoulder buttons and trigger buttons, the contact area is relatively large, especially the stroke of the trigger button is relatively long, which is suitable for playing racing games.
In terms of screen, the ONE XPLAYER Mini handheld is equipped with a 7-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1920*1200, supports ten-point touch, and has a pixel density of 232PPI. Although such a screen cannot be compared with a professional notebook computer , it is suitable for handheld game consoles . , is still sufficient.
In terms of performance, the ONE XPLAYER Mini version is equipped with Intel's 11th-generation TigerLake-U Core i7-1195G7 processor, with a maximum turbo frequency of 5.0GHz; the graphics card is the Iris Xe core display, 96 sets of EU execution units, with 16GB LPDDR4x dual-channel memory, frequency 4266MHz, this configuration is almost able to run various 3A and PC games.
Handheld heating has always been a difficult problem for many manufacturers to solve. The ONE XPLAYER Mini version adopts theHoneywellThe hardware solution of phase change heat conduction sheet + PC-level large fan + pure copper heat pipe, combined with the intelligent temperature control technology of the software, can well reduce the heat problem during the handheld game. Factory test, long game, the maximum temperature of the handheld is about 45 degrees, and the handles on both sides are basically about 30 degrees.
The handheld is equipped with the Windows 11 operating system, and users can install various PC games at will, or install them from many game platforms such as Steam. In addition, the machine also has a built-in game control center function, which can intelligently manage game setting data, system, firmware OTA upgrade and other operations. (The game center function is expected to be pushed in 2 months)
In terms of game experience, the official measured a number of games, such as " The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt", "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice", "Monster Hunter", "Horizon 5", "Battlefield 5", etc. During the game, according to different resolution settings, Basically, it can reach the running state of full frame rate, and the picture is smooth, and there is no lag.
Finally, let’s talk about the interface configuration of the handheld. The most important ones are two USB 4.0 ports and one USB-A 3.0 port. The two 4.0 ports can be connected to 4K monitors and graphics docks to enhance the gaming experience. In addition, one of the interfaces is designed at the bottom of the fuselage, which can be used with OnexDocKing docking station (peripheral accessories) products. This accessory has a wealth of expansion interfaces, which can be used for charging, Internet access, connecting keyboards, mice, monitors, etc., becoming An office computer is used.
In terms of battery life, the ONE XPLAYER Mini handheld has a built-in 10455mAh large battery. The official data is that it can continuously play local videos for 8 hours and 15W full load games for 2 hours.

In general, the release of the mini version of the OnexPlayer handheld should not be a spoiler for the handheld market, but a "handler".
