Smach Zero, the third-party handheld console for Steam games, will open for pre-order on November 10 at an early bird price of US$299.
Previously known as Steamboy Project, Smach Zero is the first Steam OS-operated portable console. Smach Zero features a 720p resolution 5 inch touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI output and 4G LTE connectivity with the PRO model.
The Steam-based handheld has an “AMD embedded G-Series SoC Steppe Eagle with Jaguar-based CPU and GCN-based Radeon graphics under the hood.” It also includes 4 GB of RAM and 32GB internal memory with room for external expansion. Battery life is yet to be confirmed.
According to Smach, the hardware specifications will allow the handheld to support more than 1,000 games in Steam at launch. The company claims the handheld will also support Dota2, Half Life 2 and Civilization V.
