Dell could be planning on joining the handheld gaming trend as it revealed a concept of its Alienware UFO 8-inch gaming PC at the CES 2020.
The Dell Alienware UFO is just a concept and may or may not make it to the market since its a conceptual prototype. Alienware didn’t state any price nor release date for the conceptual handheld device either.
The Concept UFO became an highlight during the annual tech conference at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2020 in Las Vegas after Alienware made an announcement about its handheld concept.
The Concept UFO which is running Windows 10, has an 8-inch screen with a 1200p resolution and also includes detachable controllers which would make it a perfect handheld gaming PC if it ever hits the market.
Alienware’s controller setup shares similarities to Nintendo’s Switch and will provide an extra controller grip to use the pair as a single controller too though it doesn’t seem like one will be able to use the left and right sides of the Concept UFO for different players, as you can with the Switch’s Joy-Con controllers.
The Dell UFO Concept could attract many gamers who would love to have a gaming PC in form of an handheld design not forgetting having a huge library of games since its running Windows 10.
The Dell Concept UFO runs Windows 10, has an 8-inch screen with a 1200p resolution and uses a 10th generation Intel processor
According to Alienware, the Concept UFO uses a 10th generation Intel processor and will have access to WiFi, Bluetooth, and Thunderbolt. The device has two USB-C ports and can be controlled using a keyboard and mouse like a normal PC computer.
Dell Alienware hasn’t said anything about how long the battery life lasts, though the newest version of the Switch lasts about 9.5 hours at the outside.
While the Switch has a dock that gives it the ability to output to TVs, the Concept UFO should be able to connect using Windows 10’s screen sharing options or the Thunderbolt port.
Alienware has promised to show more of the Concept UFO and its other upcoming projects during Dell’s keynote address at CES 2020. The presentation is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on January 7.
