Of course they are focused in new device with RK3288 and the gamebox (tvbox), but as far as I know, g5a is still in production. In fact device was promoted in IFA Berlin, so I don't think they have discontinued it.

Thanks Skelton
I would be happy to buy the g5a somewhere else but i will have to wait on the staff at geekbuying tonight to give me a refund tho , I hope gpd show the new devices they are working on soon . I wonder why geekbuying are not getting anymore stock ? I sent geekbuying rep on the site a pm so il have to wait for his reply .

Maybe  g5a-1 is coming with better specs ?? Don't know ?  I know they're android tv gaming box is probably nearing launch 12th oct at the electronics fair in Hong kong ?? Don't know , it seems we will have to wait . Whatever they have in mind they need to hurry because of postage times before Xmas to the likes of uk because if you order in November you will receive your device in December so for a new device to catch on quickly without world wide advertising before Xmas is tricky ,
Don't know if this device will be released but it's on they're site

That model was just the first prototype for g5a, but in the end was not used.

I don't think they hurry too much for new models, because other companies are not releasing anything new, so no competitors at the moment. But who knows...

I think they have really stopped production of g5a & g7  I have contacted several company's who say it is discontinued by gpd ,

Banggood , geekbuying , dx , willgoo all have no stock and won't be getting any , aliexpress you can find some but it's trusting that they really have it and not a scam , ebay is ?85 for g5a with only 5 left
Amazon doesn't have any , ebay you can buy g7 for ?97 but not many left

Aliexpress is reliable. Just look a seller with good feedback and that's it.

G7 is being replaced by g7A, which is the same device as g7, just a different batch with minor hardware differences. (probably because some of the internal components are not in stock anymore, and they have to make a different board.) It's kind of surprise if they discontinue g5A, specially when they promoted it at IFA Berlin. It has sold pretty well too as far as I know.

GPD is also an oem company, so I wouldn't be surprised if we see their devices under another brand.

Hi Skelton
Because I have had problems on aliexpress and swore I wouldn't use them again I have went to gpd's aliexpress shop and they don't stock the g5a so I bought two g7's ,  but I still also want a g5a for travelling for portability  so I will maybe buy one from a decent seller on aliexpress if all goes well
Cheers
Rob

HEY PPL so this is confusing I placed an order for the GPD G58 on aliexpress from GPD store there on the 29th of September but I haven't submitted payment yet I was going to today. BUT the title of GPD"s posting now says OUT OF STOCK and yet it still says BUY NOW or ADD TO CART on the page itself. Whats up with that lol Im afraid to submit payment thinking its gonna take my money and I wont get the device.

I got my refund from geekbuying yesterday and also the G5A I ordered from the amazon seller has been marked as dispatched so I am hopeful that I may yet still get hold of it!  Although just checked listing and the item is now also out of stock.
Seems a shame that they seemed to have downed tools at GPD!

I have written to some GPD guys to see what's the situation with current or future devices, if there are any. I'll keep all informed If I get some answer from them. Though probably Kelvin should be the one to explain their line-up

I have went to GPD's aliexpress shop and requested that my order for 2 x g7's to be cancelled as they haven't been posted yet.
I hope you don't mind Skelton but I told them I am only interested in g5a or g7 that are compatable with your custom Roms and that I only purchased because of your custom Roms .
As I cannot be sure that I won't be sent g7a which is most possibly incompatable then the devices would become useless to me ! So unless I am sure I can have a custom legacy rom from Skelton then I cannot purchace 
I'm sorry if I used your name and I wasn't supposed to but I was just saying the truth that I need a device that can be used with your rom .
Rob :(
Ps I've had a nightmare now ! First having to get a refund from geekbuying and now I have to try and get a refund from GPD themselves because of possible firmware changes . I wish kelvin would come to the site and let us know the score :(

Hi
I would not hit buy now if it says out of stock
Definitely not !
Contact them first that's the best advice I can give you , I have lost money from aliexpress in the past by scams so be carefull and learn how there system of payments work so you can protect yourself , it's not like paypal !

Well, I personally would try to contact the seller to know if there is actually stock before making the payment.
