The AYANEO Pocket S breaks the conventional product concept of Android handheld consoles by drawing inspiration from flagship smartphones known for their industrial design and high-end craftsmanship. It achieves an elegant appearance and top-notch texture with its ultra-thin design and high-end craftsmanship, bringing a super-thin and high-energy experience to Android handheld gaming.



The King of 15W Performance, Multi-mode Quick Switching


The high-energy experience stems from a powerful chip. AYANEO has always aimed for ultimate performance, thus choosing to collaborate closely with Qualcomm Technologies on the Pocket S, creating the most powerful and pure gaming handheld console for players.



The Pocket S is the world's first flagship Android handheld console to feature the Snapdragon G3x Gen 2 gaming platform. Empowered by this strong chip, the Pocket S bursts with peak performance.

With its new process technology and architecture, the CPU performance is more than 30% higher than the previous generation, and the GPU performance is doubled, far exceeding the second-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform from the same lineage.



As a chip born for handheld consoles, the Snapdragon G3x Gen 2 gaming platform can achieve a maximum continuous performance output of 15W. Coupled with passive and active cooling systems, its performance ceiling and endurance far surpass traditional Android handheld consoles and gaming smartphones.



Thanks to its powerful chip and excellent heat dissipation, the AYANEO Pocket S can achieve a maximum score of over 169W+ in Antutu comprehensive running points, exceeding similar handheld consoles by more than 10%; in the 3DMark Wild Life Extreme test, it can break through 4300+ points, surpassing similar handheld consoles by more than 15%.



With LPDDR5X 8533Mbps high-frequency memory and up to UFS 4.0 flash memory, the AYANEO Pocket S delivers extraordinary performance that is difficult for ordinary Android handheld consoles to achieve. The 16GB+1TB top configuration further improves read and write speeds and multitasking capabilities, allowing for easy installation of massive games and apps.



The Snapdragon G3x Gen 2 gaming platform shares the same process technology and architecture design as the well-known Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform, thus possessing excellent game compatibility. Players can enjoy playing Android mobile games and retro games on the AYANEO Pocket S with ease.



With extraordinary performance and powerful heat dissipation, the AYANEO Pocket S can easily conquer today's mainstream large-scale RPG games and heavily loaded 3D turn-based games. Native 1440P resolution can also run at 60FPS, unlocking a smoother and clearer gaming experience.



For players with different needs, the AYANEO Pocket S offers a one-click Turbo function, supporting three performance modes: "Full Power," "Game Mode," and "Balanced Mode," accurately matching the performance requirements of different types of games.



On the AYANEO Pocket S, players can quickly switch performance modes with the Turbo key located on the right side of the body, or call out the AYASpace quick setting window for switching. The switching process adds cool animation effects, making it convenient for players to distinguish the specific mode they are switching to.



Dragon Tamer, Stable High Energy


The AYANEO Pocket S provides powerful heat dissipation support for the Snapdragon G3x Gen 2 gaming platform within its lightweight and thin body. It introduces the flagship smartphone-standard VC thermal plate technology, with a VC area exceeding 5180mm² and heat sink fin area exceeding 7053mm², coupled with active air cooling, significantly improving thermal conductivity.



As a super-thin Android handheld console, the AYANEO Pocket S achieves stable output of 15W esports-level performance with innovative heat dissipation structure, ensuring good thermal control performance and smooth gaming experience, marking a significant breakthrough in the field of Android handheld consoles.

The Pocket S adopts an elegant design style and innovative use of material craftsmanship, comparable to flagship smartphones, and introduces a new high-end luxury design language, creating an unprecedented top-tier texture for Android handheld consoles.



The AYANEO Pocket S is not only powerful but also exquisite and portable, with overall dimensions of 213.9 x 85 x 14mm. With a thickness of 14mm, it rivals the closed thickness of mainstream foldable smartphones. Weighing only 350g, it is a light burden in your pocket, providing a better carrying experience than mainstream gaming handheld consoles.



Lighter and Stronger, the AYANEO Pocket S introduces a CNC aluminum alloy mid-frame, with precise CNC craftsmanship outlining simple and concise body lines and design order. It not only brings stunning luxury visual effects but also effectively enhances the body's strength, allowing players to play with peace of mind in different scenarios.



The CNC process polishes the edges of the AYANEO Pocket S's frame with micro-arc chamfers, making it comfortable to hold. The "fishbone" carved bio-inspired design creates air outlets that are elegant and practical.



Finally, the sandblasting + anodizing process adds a more delicate texture to the aluminum alloy frame, while further improving scratch resistance.



The AYANEO Pocket S continues the use of high-end craftsmanship, offering two classic color options: "Obsidian Black" and "Ice Soul White," giving AYANEO's minimalist design a new interpretation.



The deep blue frame and pure black mirror screen of "Obsidian Black" exude depth, while the silver frame and metallic texture of "Ice Soul White" create a contrasting visual experience of virtuality and reality. The minimalist aesthetic design shines brightly in these two color options.



The AYANEO Pocket S features crystal-textured D-pad and ABXY buttons, echoing the exquisite luxury design of the body, while bringing tactile feedback that feels comfortable. The 2.5D toughened glass covers the entire front panel, presenting a seamless and unified visual experience, while further enhancing the screen's resistance to scratches and impacts.



Stunning Borderless Full-Screen, Full Marks

In games that natively support 1440P resolution, the AYANEO Pocket S 1440P Advance Edition boasts ultra-clear visual effects that are unmatched by other handheld devices in its class.



At the same time, to meet the needs of players who prioritize battery life, AYANEO Pocket S also synchronously releases the 1080P IPS original color screen version. This screen is still the industry-leading screen adhered to by AYANEO, balancing stunning display effects with longer gaming battery life.
