I don't think it's willgoo's fault, they're just doing a mockup using the images that GPD provided for them. The size comparison between the hand and the device, plus it being pocketable don't add up - the device should be much smaller than it is now for all of it to make sense.

Regarding the screen size, they didn't take into account the dead zone around the screen. I think it's an honest mistake stemming from the screen being turned off in the GPD images.

I recommend not pre-ordering this device either way, too much conflicting information. It doesn't really matter, though - it comes out in a month or so. You can make a better, wiser decision once it comes out.

Not much better? 2 times the ram, 4-8 times faster gpu with opengl3.0, 50% faster cpu, two or four times more onbaord storage, 1280x720 ips screen instead of 848x480 tft... Huh?

Well, it's now officially on GPD's Chinese website:

http://www.softwincn.com/news.asp?id=1428&selectclassid=002001

Maybe someone can make heads or tales of it for some more accurate info? I assume they would be trying to get the facts solidified for their official site. That might be a BAD assumption, but I'll take ownership of it.  ;)

EDIT: Also interesting to note, the G7 has disappeared. It's now only the Q8+ (88?), Q9 and the XD. In my opinion, while I understand the need for a slim portable device, it's sad that they have moved away from the G5 and G7 form-factors. Glad I have them!

Yeah, the mistake originally appears in GPD's materials, so dodgy Chinese marketing all the way - but it's not willgoo's fault, as far as I can see.

Regarding GPD's article, it's just some promotional material. Nothing new, it'll be released soon.

Also, it apparently has a 6000mAh battery. I think it's a bit of an overkill, but good for them.

It looks like it will use a 5" smartphone screen. That's good for HD widescreen Android games, I suppose, but I wonder how small 4:3 games will be on this.

I don't have great eyesight, so the 7" screen on my JXD 7800 is kind of nice.

While the emulation wasn't perfect, I found that SNES games on my Xperia Play and DSLite back in the day looked grand; no trouble in seeing the action.

Hey willgoo!! Just as ClawShrimp has mentioned...why are you false advertising? The promo images show that the screen is bigger than it really is. I mean, you have photoshopped a lot of the bezels out.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS!!!???????????
Hello, the pictures are offered by GPD. We will take photos and show them when we get the sample. :P

Here are some pictures about GPD XD- They are only the pictures customers here in China "designed" them. The official color are black and Blue like we posted. Again, these colors are not confirmed to be produced.

still think they leave out important stuff 5Ghz for streaming no Bluetooth so you could use it in a console fashion
little bits make all the difference look at the big space on the bottom too, lets just wait for videos, I probably still get one because I'm a greedy fucker but seems we all just buy these things over and over lol, but I must remember I have a shield  portable that could do all this can :)

p.s lets see how good the stock firmware is.. it seems Skelton always has to correct things to make it better

I have a controller with  usb cable so i can use my q9 as a console nd they even included a full sized usb port on the included charger. Plus lot of the built in emulators have multiplayer over wifi support, so i don't really care about the lack of bluetooth... Plus the wifi reception on it is super strong: i can stream anime 15 meters from the router trough a wooden cabinet and four walls... Nd easily stream pc games at 60fps from home to university the next city with no lag at all! :-)

well I was hoping to stream PS4 with the hacked remote app but I think for no lag you need 5Ghz I do have good wifi however,  I have a shit PC lol so no pc gaming for me, I have a few bluetooth controllers but you just gave me a though I have a wireless PS2 controller called air-style with a USB to pc adapter 50 hours battery life that should work over OTG

Nothing like a device with lots of options a lol 8)

Rockchip does not support streaming ps4 remoteplay as far as I know from the gpd g7. This may have been fixed in the new chipset however I havent tried streaming on Q9.
