It’s only been a couple of months since the first NEXT came out, but AYANEO is already coming out with the NEXT 2.
Unlike its previous products, AYANEO is going with a discrete GPU this time around. This makes the AYANEO NEXT 2 the first-ever handheld gaming console with non-integrated GPU.
It will be available in two configurations: AMD Ryzen 6000, Radeon 6000 and Intel Alder lake and Arc GPU. However, the exact SKUs were not revealed yet.
Aside from the change in the internals, the AYANEO NEXT 2 also looks bigger than its siblings, almost similar with the size of Steam Deck. There’s also the familiar trackpads on each side.
For 2022, AYANEO already has 7 products, but affordable versions of its handheld gaming consoles are expected to come out soon.
The AYANEO NEXT 2 is on the premium side, so it’ll probably be priced at around $1,000. More details will be revealed soon.
