Surely, if you’ve got your eye on premium portable gaming devices, then the AYANEO KUN is one you’re watching closely.
And if you’ve already made your decision to pick one up, then you don’t have too long to wait. Because the Kun is set to launch on IndieGogo in less than one week.
So let’s take one final look at the ultra powerful Windows-based handheld incoming from AYANEO.
We know that the Kun will be AYANEO’s biggest and baddest Windows device to date.
And this will also be one of the strongest contenders for the premium gaming handheld throne over its competition, the Steam Deck and ASUS ROG Ally.
The Kun is packing a massive 8.4 inch screen at 1600p that is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 7840U chipset.
Additionally, it features AYANEO’s latest passive heat dissipation technology and an enormous 75Wh battery.
There are all of the premium specs you’d hope for, including hall sensor joysticks and triggers, four programmable buttons on the rear of the device, two touch pads, and the ability to add 4G to the device for cloud gaming.
So like we said… this thing has got everything. And it is truly the summation of all of AYANEO’s advances over the past few years.
