SMACH Zero, the first handheld console to play Steam games on the go, has revealed the pre-launch price of their machine at $299 or 299 Euros (we’re hoping that they realise the pricing inconsistency prior to launch) .
The SMACH Zero pre-sales will open on 10th November, with the full launch in 2016 at a higher initial cost at retail.
The machine’s specs are based around an AMD embedded G-Series SoC “Steppe Eagle” with Jaguar-based CPU and GCN-based Radeon graphics, which should be able to cope with most games using Steam OS (there will be no Windows version for obvious reasons.
It will also come with 4 GB RAM memory, which is surprisingly low but may be fine for the smaller 5 inch screen size and 720p resolution, plus 32GB internal memory and SD Card Slot for expanded memory, USB OTG and a Steam controller-like tactile gamepad.
The machine will also have an HDMI connection to output to a screen, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and for the Pro model will feature 4G mobile network connectivity.
SMACH Zero is expected to launch in 2016.
