GPD Pocket 2The mobile PC is actively cooled, but the fan can be turned off for silent computing at the cost of lower performance.. GPD Pocket 2 will ship with a fast charger (5V/3A,9V/2.67A,12V/2A), a 1-year warranty card, and a specification sheet.

The HDMI port has been removed compared to the first model, as people can use a USB-C to HDMI cable / adapter to connect the ultra mobile PC to an external monitor. The device also takes many of the features from GPD Win 2 gaming console, but with a larger and higher resolution display,  and being positioned as a “household intelligent device” rather than a game console.

GPD Pocket2 has just launched in Indiegogo with the 4GB/128GB version offered for $529, and the 8GB/128GB version for $599. Shipping is free, and you should expect your reward to be shipped in October 2018. The model with 8GB RAM is by far the most popular at this stage.

GPD gave some prototypes to testers, and we already have some early reviews / first impressions.

It would be nice to have a forum. Sometimes we have some questions and it is not nice to post offtopic.
Better to have some billboard. Everyone wins.

Sorry for offtopic;)

FWIW:
The storage is eMMC, that’s unlikely to be supported by any other OS but Windows 10 and (probably) Linux. The eMMC interface on the Core-i series is only lightly tested, let’s hope it’s better than the one Apollo Lake.
The WiFi is a 2×2 from Intel. I would have assumed it was a 7265/7260 or 8265/8260 but they have BT 4.2, while the 316x have BT 4.0.
