GPD have gone through various plans for a GPD XD 2, from a 360 degree hinge design to a slider design. It seems for now, GPD is planning to release a XD + which will just be an upgraded GPD. A full new XD 2 product may come some time later , perhaps next year - plans are on ice for it so to speak.

The XD + is in prototype stage and is being tested . Expected launch is early next year.

Apparently this new update was sparked by Rockchip not selling the RK3288 anymore, which powers the current XD


Specs leaked so far are:

MTK8176 (hexa core) - It has 2 fast Cortex-A72 CPU cores running at up to 2.1 GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores
4 GB RAM
32 EMMC - probably different size options as with the current XD
Android Nougat
Bluetooth
WiFi
uSD slot
Clamshell as per the current XD

Sounds awesome. Looks like it will be at lease twice as fast as the current version.

Thanks for the heads up, but I don't think I'll be availing myself anytime soon.. afaic mobile chipsets need significant power/battery life improvement before I part with my hard earned (& that includes the Switch's X1)

Apparently the XD + will be released for sale early next year- possibly January.

GPD has reported that they have Vulkan working on a new firmware and they will send it to phawx soon. He will start testing again after that and report back.

Sounds interesting.
