Ayn, the company behind the Odin Android handheld, is introducing a new line of “very affordable” portable Windows gaming consoles (via Liliputing). The entry-level model costs $299, which is $100 less than the 64GB Steam Deck.

Ayn made the announcement via a YouTube video and a series of Instagram photographs, demonstrating what to expect in terms of style, technology, and price. The Loki Mini costs $299 and comes with 64GB of storage and an Intel Alder Lake U processor, while the regular Loki costs $499, $599, and $699 and comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 6600U processor with three storage options: 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The Loki Max is $799 and includes an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor and 512GB of storage.

If the amount of storage included with the device isn’t enough for you, you may be able to upgrade after you purchase it. Each model, according to YouTuber Taki Udon, may have swappable storage, which implies you may be able to increase your storage capacity if you run out (via Liliputing).

On the surface, the Ayn Loki resembles the Switch-like Odin, but as Liliputing points out, it shifts from a colorful X, A, B, Y layout to a solid black or white style with the same Y, B, A, X arrangement as an Xbox controller. On the bottom of the device is a USB-C port as well as a headphone jack.

The Loki will be released tomorrow at 9:00 p.m. EST, according to another of Ayn’s Instagram posts, and will most likely be available for purchase on the company’s website. Taki Udon also adds that Odin owners may be eligible for a discount on the Loki line, though the price of Ayn is unknown.
