They will use the same as xiaomi mipad3. I suppose they don't use helio x27 because of price, they probably want to release it at an affordable price like current XD. To be honest if they release an android device for emulation for 300 bucks or so, then  the GPD WIN is a better option for emulation, because it has better MAMe, GC, Saturn, etc... than Android.

I would consider XD 2 as an entry level device for emulation, like current XD, and GPD WIN as their top product,.

6 inches sideslip 720 p
MTK8176 2 + 32g  5000-6000MA  WIFI+BT
<$200
That's what samty told me. It will include phone options or only 4g?

Keep the clamshell form factor then.   There is no point going for a slider with no phone functionality.  The only beneift of a slider would then be to also play touch games, but the people who buy the XD are not really touch game players.

Sideslip won't reduce the simulator of user experience, but can improve the experience of tablet mode, there are some players need this
The future may have a new product with the function of the phone But it is not suitable for to do such a product, because our technical accumulation is not enough

I can understand not doing a gaming phone  .   I agree with you there.  I'm just not sure about the slider form factor. It does allow you to play touch games, but I'm a little worried about how comfortable it would be playing games with the slide out controls.  Sliders don't leave a lot of room for the controls, but I guess we will see.

That all said,   I can't wait to see it and good luck for it's launch

So i suppose it's 2 with 32 of internal memory. With that chipset i don't think more RAM is needed. Shield TV has 3 because their GPU consume 1 tb.

So this device is still happening? Thats good. hasn't been much news since a year ago so I figured the GPD Win was their focus now

If its actually happening ill hold off buying a GPD XD. I was tempted to get a GPD Q9 after I got the Nintendo Switch bc Switch feels So good in your hands but I feel like its closer to handheld size than tablet size so the Q9 may feel much larger than the switch

I think i will pass it. With only 2 gb ram and a poor GPU i would prefer awaiting for a powerful chineses smartphone like Oneplus 5 or Xiaomi Mi6 with 4, 6 gb ram and Snapdragon 835 and play it with a gamepad. But i will give a chance to GPD Win 2.

Well, it's a different target. Phones with snapdragon 835 are not precisely cheap. Gpd XD 2 is thought to be affordable. Current gpd win may fit your needs though if you want to emulate GC.

Oh I see ahhhh man I was hoping it would either keep the clamshell or that side slip would've meant the controls literally slipped out of the side and became like a vita (but with full R1/R2 L1/L2 like the JXD S5800) But hey who knows maybe it'll be great. Those initial pics posted a year ago show the clamshell design i guess they changed their minds

If I were you I would not hold off.
1).The current GPD XD is amazing.
2). The GPD XD 2 may be further away than we think...

After watching new videos of samsung galaxy s8 play gamecube games on dolphin flawlessly (super mario sunshine, smash bros, and wind waker), I would be happy to pay ~$500 for GPD XD android device with better cpu/gpu that could emulate gamecube and ps2. I mean having playable the whole games library of gamecube, ps2, psp, nds and all the consoles before them in your pocket would be priceless!

Ps2 in Android is imposible at the moment. If you need gc emulation gpd win is even cheaper than 500 bucks, and os better emulates than on android. Dolphin in Android is still worse than windows builds. Mario sunshine , wind waker or Mario kart are easy to emulate. But try emiuating metroid Prime for instance. Even the shield tv with la GPU struggles with many gc titles. The fact that some games are playable on android doesn't mean all gc is fullspeed.

If anyone has a wii u super random sorry but the best way to emulate gamecube is with Nintendont. Its a homebrew app that emulates the games from isos as if they were being natively played, no slowdowns whatsoever or glitches, and the graphics are even slightly uprezzed from 480P to 720P it just doesnt look quite as good as dolphin on pc of course, but its runs the games as if they were being played on an actual gamecube without the at times glitchyness and stutter of dolphin

On a side note yeah android emu of gc isnt the best right now, but i think in time itll improve vastly

Dolphin doesn't stutter or has Many glitches. Since 5.0 has improved a lot
In fact some games look better than original hardware. Anyhow, what wiiu does is.not emulation. Like PSVita running PSP games..And wiu is not a handheld (in spite of the tablet controllers)
