AYA Neo Slide is not a new form factor for a handheld but it brings something unique to the handheld pc market.
Aya Neo Slide Specs
There are few details about this handheld yet. Below is some basic info we have known so far:
- CPU: Ryzen 7 6800U
- GPU: Radeon 680M
- RAM: LPDDR5-6400 RAM
- Storage: can be extended with a microSD card reader
- Ports: USB-C port, a headphone jack,
The AYA Neo Slide features a 6-inch, 1080p display that slides up to reveal a physical keyboard that supports RGB backlighting. There are 2 angles that the display supports, one is the flat orientation, and the other is a 45-degree angle view.
I think this could be useful when putting the device on a flat surface to watch videos. It is yet to be discovered how well this will work practically, and if the screen only supports these two angles. If it does turn out to be the case that the AYA NEO only supports these two angles, it would be a shame, as it would limit the potential uses of the device. Nevertheless, it is still an innovative feature that could make a difference in how people use their devices.
The Slide is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with Radeon 680M graphics and features an LPDDR5-6400 RAM.
The handheld has a USB-C port, a headphone jack, and a microSD card reader. The top has another USB-C port and a power button.
One of the notable features is the LED lighting that surrounds the analog sticks and the keyboard area. This not only looks great, but it also helps you to see the buttons more clearly in low-light conditions.
Another great feature is the sliding mechanism that allows you to snap the screen into place when you want to use the keyboard or cover it when you’re not using it.
