GPD-XP modular portable set-top box runs on non-standard Android

GPD, quite well known for its miniature laptops, is gearing up to enter the portable gaming market. As GPD demonstrated on the official Discord channel, we will soon see the GPD-XP portable modular game console based on the Android operating system. 

The GPD-XP will receive a 6.81-inch display, a MediaTek Helio G95 single-chip system, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal UFS 2.1 flash memory (plus support for microSD cards), and 4G support, but only for Internet access. Calls and SMS are likely to be disconnected. In addition, the gadget does not have a built-in microphone.

The console will be able to boast of the controls familiar to gamers. On the left side of the console, there is a D-pad cross and an analog stick, as well as four more hardware buttons. On the right, it is suggested to use plug-ins of different types. 

The camera is located in the lower-left corner, so it shouldn't interfere too much during the game. The GPD-XP also boasts a 7000mAh battery, which is quite a lot for this form factor. GPD promises 12 hours of battery life. 

Apparently, the device is running a custom Android build. It is reported that the international version will receive Android 11 and will ship with Google services. The price of the GPD-XP has not yet been announced.
