AYANEO has finally revealed the full specs and pricing of the new Air 1S Windows handheld gaming console. And there’s also a lighter “Air 1S Ultra Thin & Light Edition”. So let’s get right into the design, specifications, availability, and expected price in Nepal of the AYANEO Air 1S.

AYANEO AIR 1S Overview:

Display and Build

This handheld sports a 5.5″ AMOLED display with an FHD (1920 x 1080  pixels) resolution. It has a pixel density of 404 ppi and can hit 350 nits of max brightness. Other than that, this AMOLED panel covers 99% of the DCI-P3 and 100% of the sRGB color gamut.

Coming to the design, the AYANEO Air 1S features a hall-sensing joystick and hall trigger on either side. There’s a D-Pad on the left while your “ABXY” buttons are on the right side. Additionally, there are 4 other buttons spread out evenly on both sides for different shortcuts. Other than this, the AYANEO AIR 1S has an x-axis linear vibration motor and dual six-axis gyroscope for an immersive gaming experience.


This handheld comes in three colors: Aurora White, Polar Black, and a special “Retro Power” edition. And since it falls under the company’s “Air” lineup, it is also pretty lightweight at just 450 grams. To compare, the new Asus ROG Ally weighs 608 grams, while Valve’s Steam Deck is even heavier at 669 grams. There’s even an “AYANEO AIR 1S Ultra Thin & Light Limited Edition” which weighs just 405 grams. As for the dimensions, the AYANEO AIR 1S measures 224mm long, 89.5mm wide, and 21.6 mm thick. And that limited edition model trims off some of the bulk achieving 18mm of thickness.


In terms of performance, the AYANEO AIR 1S is powered by the popular AMD Ryzen 7 7840U APU. It is very similar to the Ryzen Z1 Extreme in the ROG Ally, by the way. Both are 8-cores / 16-threads chips with a base clock speed of 3.3 GHz that can be boosted to a maximum of 5.1 GHz. The 7840U also features an AI engine, which is absent on the Z1 Extreme. Other than this, both of them deliver nearly identical performance.

AYANEO AIR 1S Performance

Similarly, the AYANEO AIR 1S can be configured to have up to 32 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 4TB of M.2 (2280) SSD. And in the base variant, you get 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD. To quickly access all your games and different system settings like TDP and fan speed, this handheld ships with the updated “AYASpace 2” utility tool as well.


AYANEO AIR 1S has a 38Wh (10,050mAh) battery. Since this can run at as low as 5W of power, it should provide decent battery life while playing basic games. Whereas when connected to power, it can run at up to 25W for better performance on more demanding titles. On the contrary, its “Light” Edition has a slightly smaller 28Wh (7,350mAh) battery. And it can run at a maximum of 18W when plugged in.

Moving on, port options on the AYANEO Air 1S include two USB4 (Type-C), one 3.5mm headphone jack, and one TF card slot. Its power button also doubles as a fingerprint reader. The handheld comes with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 and runs on Windows 11 out of the box. 

AYANEO AIR 1S Price in Nepal and Availability

As an early bird price, the base 16/512GB variant of the AYANEO Air 1S is available for USD 799, while its retail price is USD 100 more. Similarly, AYANEO AIR 1S Ultra Thin and Light Edition currently sells for USD 999 but will have a retail price of USD 1,129. Though unlikely, if this handheld makes it here, we expect the AYANEO AIR 1S price in Nepal to start at around NPR 140,000.
