Orange Pi Neo – the first handheld to offer Manjaro Linux. ASUS ROG Ally has a new rival with the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U chip


Orange Pi Neo - the first handheld to offer Manjaro Linux.  ASUS ROG Ally has a new rival with the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U chipWe saw a rather unexpected move from Orange Pi, a company known for producing single-board computers (SBC). This time, the Chinese company wants to try its hand at the gaming handheld segment. The first product will be the title Orange Pi Neo, which is distinguished by the fact that it will function based on one of the Linux distributions, namely Manjaro. So it looks interesting, although we don’t know all the details yet.

In 2024, several new gaming handhelds will appear, and one of them may be the Orange Pi Neo. The device just presented boasts the presence of the Manjaro Linux system and efficient components.

AYANEO NEXT LITE – handheld, but without HoloISO on board. The manufacturer will offer Windows 11 instead

So far, one brand has dared to announce a handheld with a system other than Windows, but it quickly withdrew this decision. The market is currently dominated by devices running the Microsoft system, so any competition in this aspect is more than advisable. Orange Pi Neo may break this trend because it will offer us the mentioned Linux distribution called Manjaro. So far, in the context of alternative systems for handhelds, e.g. HoloISO (a slightly modified version of SteamOS) was available. The device itself will have similar performance to the currently available ASUS ROG Ally or Lenovo Legion Go. In addition, we can count on up to 32 GB of RAM in the LPDDR5 standard and up to 2 TB SSD storage.

OneXPlayer X1 – 3-in-1 handheld with Intel Core Ultra 7 155H and 64 GB RAM. Official prices, release date and specifications

On the front there is a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, a 120-hertz refresh rate and a peak brightness of 500 nits (it is not stated whether we are dealing with an IPS panel, although it probably is). The advantages include the presence of a 3.5 mm Audio-Jack socket and a 65 W power supply. Great attention was also paid to the aspect of cooling and the quality of analog knobs (Hall effect sensors). However, we do not know important details regarding the expected release date and price. However, it can be expected that it will be quite attractive, considering the current offer of the Chinese company.
