GPD, the maker of the seven-inch Windows 10 GPD Pocket mini laptop, is planning to launch a successor model with thinner bezels and a more powerful CPU.
The first GPD Pocket, which debuted on Indiegogo last year, ran on a 1.6GHz Intel Atom x7-Z8750 quad-core processor and an Intel HD 405 graphics processor.
It also had 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution touchscreen display and a 7,000mAh battery. It was available with either Windows 10 or Ubuntu and currently costs around $480.
Wade, the co-owner of GPD, has now offered specs for the second generation model, according to Liliputing.
GPD is doing away with the pointing stick in the keyboard and it will remain a predominantly touchscreen device.

However, the keyboard has been redesigned and now features a black strip above the keyboard for controlling functions such as volume and brightness. GPD is also sticking with the MacBook-style hinge rather than a Yoga-like 360 degree hinge.
The new model will come with a Intel Core m M3-7Y30 Kaby Lake processor, with either 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
There will also be a MicroSD card slot, a 6,800mAh battery, a capacitive pen, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and one USB Type-C port for changing and data transfer and a headphone jack.
Overall, the device should be slimmer, more powerful and have more screen space than its predecessor.
The price should be less than the Win 2 gaming device, which initially sold for $599. GPD isn't offering a Linux model but a Linux OS can be installed later.
The device may be available through an Indiegogo campaign as early as July, but this hasn't been finalized yet.
