Yeah, probably they Will postponed It until they find a suitable and cheap SoC. For me gpd win is practically a xd2, but they would need to release a dual boot.

Some news from GPD. It seems XD 2 is not in their plans anymore. They want to focus in Windows devices. They are considering a gaming phone with helio x20, but they are not sure if device can be successful or not, so at the moment is only an idea.

Sad news for me. I would prefer new gaming console than new phone with ability to play games.

Great news for me! ;D

However, I didn't like the idea of having a gaming phone. I prefer them to focus on Windows portable devices, such as the GPD Win 2.

Current GPD WIN is a great device, but not all people can spend 300 bucks in a handheld. Android devices fill that entry market

I approve the idea of a gaming phone. I had a Xperia Play and i loved it till it gets unuseful for having bad specs like lackage of ram and only 1 gb of rom so i couldnīt play newer games. A gaming phone with dedicated buttons, good cpu/gpu and at least 3gb ram would be welcome. I hope GPD makes it real.

If they make a crowfunding campaign for a gaming phone, i will probably back it.

I would like the idea of a gaming phone , but only in one condition : it must be just like Xperia play,

actually, i was quiet suprised why no manufacter think of making a agaming phone like the xperia play,

but if Gpd want to make one, i will recommand to use xperia play design .

I agree completely with you. I canīt see better design for a gaming phone. PGS (assuming their project is real) took the hint.

I agree that probably Xperia Play design is the way to go. Otherwise I wouldn't use it as a phone.

Xperia Play was bulky. And the bar type like the Snail W3D / W1 or the JXD phone were seemed long. Don't know what a happy medium would be... That being said i would back a croudfunding.

What about a phone with a dedicated removable gamepad. Like the wikipad had, just a thought

I'm all for a gaming phone.  I think thats a brilliant idea 

That said, how is that deviating from having an XD2,  an XD2 was always going to be a physically different prospect to the current XD. Remember GPDs concept XD2 which had a 360 swiveling screen so that it could be used as a small tablet/phone. This still seems along the same line. ie I still see a gaming phone as an XD2.

Also, I dont understand your comment about GPD focussing now on Windows devices . Yet are planning the gaming phone with Helio x20 - which is ARM and most likely means Android also.   Seems like a huge contradiction.

As I said last last time,  Kendy confirmed to me on the 17th that the XD2 is still coming.  And it seems from what you said that they are looking at the form being a gaming phone.  Mybe this is just semantics in that maybe, they will call it something different.

I have just bought a JXD S5800 which is an android gamepad and smartphone together.
It cost cc. 100 USD, so it can be an alternative for those, who wants a handheld gameconsole and smartphone all in one.
I didnt regret buying this, it works very well.

Seegaa
