According to GPD the device will come with a 7-inch touch screen display protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The device will sport an in Intel Atom x7-Z8700 Cherry Trail processor, so don’t expect a super snappy experience but it should be fast enough to get basic work done. For the storage, GPD will include 128GB and 4GB for the RAM. The mini-PC will also sport 7,000 mAh battery which should provide a good-enough battery life but details regarding the exact run time aren’t available yet.

In fact, a lot of the details about GPD’s Pocket device isn’t available yet. GPD did share some renders, which you can see below but that’s about it. GPD will be selling its Pocket device via Indiegogo next month, according to a report but pricing details aren’t available at the moment.

The GPD Pocket certainly is quite an interesting device, not as your main PC, but as a way to get some work done on the go when only a PC will do.  The micro-PC will not be a powerhouse, but if you’re looking for a tiny Windows 10 laptop that you can use wherever you go, the GPD Pocket might just be the device you’re looking for.
