The Asus ROG Ally X should arrive next month as an incremental upgrade to the 2023 ROG Ally from the Taiwanese firm. It will arrive with notable upgrades to some components of Asus’ original handheld gaming console that made its debut last year, according to a report. The upcoming ROG Ally X will reportedly be equipped with the same 7-inch display and AMD processor found in the first-gen device, while offering more RAM and battery life, as well as support for larger upgrades for storage.

The company has teased the arrival of the Asus ROG Ally X in a YouTube video, where it suggests that the upcoming device will be equipped with notable hardware upgrades. In an interview with The Verge, Asus SVP Sean Yen confirmed that the new handheld games console will arrive on June 2, equipped with a significantly larger battery – the most sought-after hardware upgrade – that can offer at least three hours of battery life.

The upcoming Asus ROG Ally X will also be equipped with more than 16 GB of RAM, which is an upgrade over the first generation console. Meanwhile, Yen also told the publication that customers will be able to upgrade the ROG Ally X with more SSD storage thanks to a longer M.2 2280 SSD slot — the 2023 model has an M.2 2230 slot.

Meanwhile, there’s no word on whether the problems reported by customers with the SD card reader have been resolved, but The Verge says the device will be equipped with a new motherboard design. As a result, the component can be located further away from the ROG Ally X’s vents.

The company will also equip the device with better grips and optimizations to the joysticks, triggers and D-Pad, according to the publication. Other specs like the AMD Z1 Extreme chip that powered the first generation ROG Ally and the 7-inch display are expected to be retained in the upgraded ROG Ally X model, which is scheduled to arrive next month.
