Dell has announced one of its oddest hardware during CES 2020, in the form of the Alienware Concept UFO. The company’s Alienware name is usually pegged to gaming desktop and laptop PCs, as well as displays. But this one happens to be a handheld.
The company says that, despite the size, the Concept UFO is still an Alienware gaming PC. There’s the unavoidable comparison to the Nintendo Switch, and for more reasons than one. To start, it has an eight inch, 1900 x 1200 screen.
It also has two detachable controllers, with a very familiar layout. There’s even something that connects the two detached controllers, much like the Switch’s grip. For what it’s worth, these controllers may have the ergonomic edge, as they look like they’ll be more comfortable in hand.
The Alienware Concept UFO also has a stand at the back that you can extend, if you prefer your screen and controls to be detached. Of course, you can also connect it to an external display. And since it’s still a PC, you can also connect your mouse and keyboard.
In terms of specs though, nothing was mentioned beyond 10th-gen Intel Core processors. Alienware emphasised though that this is just a concept, and is not currently available for purchase. With that, it remains to be seen what the future of this concept will be.
