Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck have yet another competitor on the way

If you didn’t think any more high-profile handheld console releases could happen in the wake of the Nintendo Switch OLED and Valve’s Steam Deck, Chinese tech company GPD is here to prove you wrong with its own take on the trend.

Named the GPD-XP, the Android-powered handheld has no firm release date as of yet, nor much in the way of concrete details, but according to XDA Developers, the console will boast a 6.81-inch screen, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage and 4G support (albeit with calls and SMS disabled). A microSD slot and built-in microphone will also feature on the device.
