Valve is allowing manufacturing partners to build Steam machines and we’ve already seen quite a few really good ones so far, there was a portable machine also under development not too long ago, it was previously known as Steam Boy. Now though the handset has been rebranded to Smach Zero and the company behind it has finally confirmed pricing and availability details.
The portable Smach Zero Steam machine is going to start shipping by Q4 2016, but people who are interested in it can place their pre-orders starting November 10th, 2015.
It’s essentially a portable gaming PC and given that portability is a big concern here the specifications of this device aren’t exactly out of this world.
Smach Zero features a 5 inch touch screen display with 720p resolution, it features 4GB of RAM and a 32GB hard drive through external expansion is possible using SD cards.
Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI output and even 4G LTE connectivity but only on the PRO model. Despite these specifications Smach is confident that its portable Steam machine is well capable of playing some of the most popular titles like Dota2, Half Life 2 and Civilization V.
Those who are interested in Smach Zero can place a pre-order through the company’s website starting November 10th for $299.
