The ZPG Pro Rumours and Speculation

The original ZPG was a DIY handheld that used the guts of a cell phone for its mainboard.

It’s always been rumoured that the ZPG was leading up to something else, and that rumour has just been substantiated. Over on the Chinese forums God of light and darkness (cool name) is posting short teaser videos pertaining to a ZPG Pro. Let’s have a look at the ZPG Pro rumours and speculation.

It’s a very reasonably priced aluminium alloy case with both active and passive cooling, and some other clever tricks up its sleeve.

The Raspberry Pi4 was released back in June 2019, but it hasn’t yet found its way in to any mass produced handhelds. There are two main reasons for this. The lack of a more compact Compute Module variant of the RPi4 means that any handheld would have to accommodate the comparatively bulky full sized board.
