I will only buy it if it has phone and 4g connectivity in the US. It's a very tempting device but the GPD Win will solve most my gaming needs and so the only way I could justify it is as a phone replacement.
I would like that but I doubt it. Perhaps in a premium unit they can include a LTE module or replace the chipset with something that has LTE. (those SoCs are usually as expensive as an LTE modem though)

I don't think RK3399 support LTE, but not sure. Perhaps they had to use a MTK chipset for that, but they are rockchip partners, so I suppose that's why they continue using RK.

Did anyone get the 128gb XD? The XD 2 would be great if it had that much memory.

It's primarily aimed at setup boxes so it's very unlikely. Actually I doubt RockChip has the needed IP portfolio to create a on die LTE unit.

"In addition to application in tablets, VR, TV-BOX, laptops, in-vehicle navigations, and communications, the RK3399, with its enriched scalability, can be applied to all types of terminals covering industrial and consumer applications, including smart appliances, advertising devices/the all-in-one machines, POS systems, vehicle control terminals, thin-clients, VOIP video conferencing, security/monitoring/policing, IoT, as well as other fields. As the new flagship product of 2016, Rockchip RK3399's strong compatibility and scalability is its strongest core competency.

IoT and tablets give a slight hope but they don't list it so almost definitely nope.

It makes sense, RK design tablets and tvboxes, and no phones, so.... Unless another company make an android device with some MRK chip or something, nothing to do if you want LTE.

My personal wishlist and must have if I want to purchase the XD2

-More comfortable L2/R2, I know its hard to fit them, maybe like MatriMax iPlay 7 did?

-Wifi 5Ghz, using Moonlight streaming (Nvidia), PS Now possibly coming to PC... this needs to happen.

These are just things that I would consider as nice to have.

-Overall a better build quality, but this is not that important as XD is quite well, but theres room to improve.
-Better screen (not necessarily bigger)
-Battery life ( who doesn't :P)
-Bigger memory without the exagerated price increase.

If this thing is an rk3399 I'm gonna pass and just focus on android on the win.  Performance from the rks have been much poorer than I'm accustom to.  I've lived with the lag and stutter of the xd for the size with real joysticks, but I was hoping the cherry trail version of the same form factor would set me free. Was looking forward to getting both, but looks like the win won.

I wouldn't be so quick to write it off, it's a fairly decent SOC. The RK3399 is a hexa-core processor. It has two ARM Cortex-A72 CPU cores and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores. It also has Mali-T864 graphics, supports dual-channel memory and Gigabit Ethernet connections. It features ARMv8, 64-bit architecture. It is also 4k capable

Lag and stutter in the xd? I don't have any lag or stutter.... It performs quite well, and exce?t uoyabause and some tegra games, it emulates pretty similar to my shield tablet. The rk3288 is a ver decent soc considering it's price. Even my shield tv struggles with some.ppsspp games.

The rk3399 won't be a high end. Because i suppose the purpose is tp make an affordable device. Those wanting a more powerful device will go for the win. But the win won:t run native Android as far as i heard.

What can we expect for a performance gain with the rk3399?
I know it's CPU faster but on the GPU side is the Mali T-864 a good upgrade over the old SOC? How much GPU performance can we get over the original XD?

It should perform a bit better, but difficult to know yet, because it's not available yet the rk3399. Current mali760 have very good perfomance at 720p, so even if not a bigger upgrade, should be enough for the soc.
Rk3399 will be quit? cheap, so don't expect ultra perfomance, but a good perfomance/cost ratio.

According to arm webpage:
https://www.arm.com/products/multimedia/mali-gpu/high-performance/mali-t860-t880.php

Anyhow, xd.2 is something that is not even staryed yet by gpd. They told me the would begin to work on it after they finish with thw win, so it can take months until it:s available

Gpd told.me that wanted to be ready for beginning of 2017, but i think it will be available later, probably just before summer. As soon as i get more.lnfo i will tell, because probably i will make a firmware contribution (if my health allow me).

Don't know how it's called my disease in english, but basically i have terrible headaches and pain in my ears almost everyday. I need surgery and some time to recover.

SONY, specs will be rk3399. Nothing high end because i suppose they wany to keep price low.

Ah ok, it makes sense I guess.
Price wise, keeping it competitive with other similar products as well.
Anyway, I know a few people who are also experiencing the same sort of health issues & symptoms, etc, so please get well soon ok.

If its very strong headaches that make it so you can't really do anything, they're usually called migraines, though that's not specifically a disease but can be caused by lots of things. The best description I know is when you get a brain freeze by drinking lots of something very cold and get a headache, only a lot worse.
