The AYANEO Pocket Air has been a topic of intrigue since its first unveiling in July. Designed as a handheld gaming console with powerful specifications, it’s powered by the robust Dimensity 1200 SoC. While the brand had plans to introduce the device for pre-orders in July with deliveries starting in August, unforeseen delays have led to a revised timeline.

Launch Details Now, AYANEO has updated its plan. The console will be up for sale starting September 6th at precisely 12:00 UTC. Those who supported the product on Indiegogo can expect their consoles to be shipped by September’s end.

Pricing Structure For early adopters, there’s good news. AYANEO is offering an Early Bird price tag of $279 for the model which includes 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. But there’s a catch. Once these initial units are claimed, the price goes up to $299. The company has also provided pricing for its other configurations. Those interested in the 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant can get it at an early bird price of $329. The premium 12 GB RAM with 512 GB storage version is priced at $399 for early birds. After the early bird units are exhausted, there will be an increase of $50 on these prices.
