Smach has announced its Smach Zero, which was previously known as the Steamboy, will be available for pre-order on November 10 for $299. The Steam Machine handheld is expected to ship out in Q4 2016.

The Smach Zero is said to be the first handheld console that will allow its users to play Steam games on the go. Smach is promising its device will play “more than 1,000 games” from Steam’s library at its launch.

As far as its hardware specs, here’s what Smach announced its Zero will have when it launches:

  • AMD embedded G-Series SoC "Steppe Eagle" with Jaguar-based CPU and GCN-based Radeon graphics
  • 4 GB RAM memory
  • 32GB internal memory and SD Card Slot
  • 5-inch Touch screen with 720p resolution
  • Configurable tactile gamepads
  • HDMI video output connection
  • Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • 4G mobile network connectivity (PRO model only)

Smach has yet to announce pricing for its Zero outside of its special $299 pre-order price nor do we know the pricing for its PRO model. We’ve reached out to Smach to learn more about its Zero and will update this story accordingly.
