2 Physical Reprogrammable Back

Buttons That Allows Users To Remap


When playing games, the upper lid is generally not opened because the keyboard is not used. However, if you need to press any key that isn't mapped to the gamepad, it would be troublesome to slide up the lid every time you need it. In order to offer more flexibility to the device, we added 2 physical buttons on the back of the WIN 4 to allow you to customize key combinations and intervals with ease.


L1 / R1 Trigger Buttons Offers RGB Ambient

Lighting Effect Across Different Lighting Modes


WIN 4's L1/R1 trigger buttons featuring ambient lighting effect, lighting colors are changeable and multiple light effect modes are available.


L2 / R2 Are Linear Analog Trigger Buttons Supporting Progressive Press Which Allows Subtle Acceleration In Racing Games, Weapon Trigger Sensitivity In Shooting Games


The most popular games are largely related to either cars, guns or sport. The WIN 4 represents a continuation of the linear analog trigger button found in the WIN 3. The 27-degree tilt angle can produce 256 (0~255) status variation and converts the value of acceleration into numerical instructions. If you are a veteran player of racing games, the WIN 4 will definitely be a game changer in terms of the quality of smoothness - the progressive acceleration of your racing car and the trigger press of your gun will offer you a more immersive experience.


ALPS Original Double 3D large Joysticks With A Return To The Original Misaligned Arrangement, Comparable To The Top-grade Seimitsu And Sanwa Joysticks

The analog stick cap is decomposed into the hem and cover cap, with the former tightly clamped by the latter to prevent potential falling out. The ALPS original double 3D large joysticks that protrude out promise longer travel distances and smaller resistance. Despite a minor sacrifice of responsive speed, the design has significantly improved precision. When you are indulged in combat games, the joysticks deliver a performance comparable to top-grade Seimitsu and Sanwa products. L3/R3 is supported when pressed downward.


Double Large Rumble Motors With Adjustable Vibration Intensity And The Ability Of Turning It Off


WIN 4 adopts double large rumble motors with adjustable vibration intensity to boost vibration experience. When playing shooting games, you can feel the recoil of your gun; while the device will vibrate when you start the engine of your racing car. The device's refined vibration effect and much improved grip  will make you completely immersed in your game. If you do not like vibrations, simply turn it off.



6-axis Gyroscope Allowing You To Play Motion Sensing Games Whenever You Want


The built-in 6-axis gyroscope enables translation of body motions into different movement operation in games. Human movements thus can determine the direction of your racing car, your gun when aiming, offering more diversified gameplay approaches. The exclusive gyroscope setting software allows free adjustment of multi-functional parameters in order to offer you more flexible gaming experience!


Concealed Physical Keyboard With Dome-switch Keys And Brightness Adjustable Backlight


The WIN 4's design welcomes back the traditional physical keyboard with dome-switch keys. When the “QWERTY” full layout keyboard reveales, the white back light will lit up the keys. Backlight brightness has 3 levels: strong, weak and off.


PC-grade Large Turbine Fan And Thick Heat Pipes That Increase Heat Dissipation Efficiency By 35% Compared To The WIN 3


Despite its small size, the WIN 4 never compromises on power capacity and cooling solution. The cooling solution is using a larger fan than the one in the WIN3, which produces 34% more air volume, the heatpipes are 50% thicker, increasing the heat transfer by 50%, improving the overall heat dissipation efficiency by 35% .

PWM fan rotation speed is adjustable in the BIOS setting, meaning that when the internal temperature is lower than 40℃, the fan works only at 20% of its full rotation speed, when the temperature is higher than 40%, the rotation of the fan will accelerate at a rate of 2% PWM up to 100%.

Combined with the high-speed ventilation channel on the top, the heat can be rapidly vented out, translating during real tests by the device being totally silent when working at an 18W TDP. Ultimately, its noise is lower than the WIN 3 when it is running at a 28W TDP.


AAC Super Linear Dual Stereo Speakers With High Power Efficiency, High PSRR, Low Noise And Smart PA Offering Double Amplitude Enhancement, Loud And Clear Sound


In terms of sound, the WIN 4 inherits the outstanding design of WIN 3 and WIN Max 2 by adopting high-PSRR smart PA to deliver better energy efficiency and lower noise. In the meantime, it features the German AAC super linear stereo speakers with the speakerbox complemented by Bass materials, making it equivalent to a 0.9cc large speakerbox design. The dual-coil-driven diaphragm can not only balance forces imposed on it but it also enhances and doubles the amplitude , resulting in exceptionally loud and clear sound!


Extra Optical Finger Navigation Offers Ease Of Gaming And Working


To avoid repeated switches between “joystick/mouse”, Pocket 2's optical mouse sensor is added to the lower right corner of the device. Now, you are able to use the mouse to control the desktop in gaming and working even under the gamepad mode. The advantages can be summarized as follows:

The WIN 4 integrates 4 types of navigation inputs including the keyboard, right analog stick, the optical mouse sensor and the touch screen. 


Retain Fingerprint Unlock Avoid Entering Password Every Time


If you leave temporarily, the screen is locked, and you have to slide the cover to enter the password every time, which is very troublesome. WIN 4 retains the fingerprint unlock function in the lower left place, and the system can be unlocked with one finger and one key!


Entirely New USB4 Port With A Data Transfer Speed Up To 40Gbps, Supporting Thunderbolt 3 Protocol And Connectivity To External Graphics Enclosure (eGPU) To Play AAA Games


The USB4 supports Thunderbolt 3 protocol, increasing the data transmission speed of each connected device up to 32Gbps (4GB/s). With connectivity to an external graphics enclosure (eGPU), you will get a wonderful experience, even latest AAA games will get significantly improved FPS and smoother graphics.

* Nvidia RTX10, 20 and 30 built-in graphics amplifiers are recommended, instead of the AMD Radeon RX 6XXX series and the Intel ARC Axxx series.


Double Type-C Ports Design (One is USB4) Ensures Both Connections To External Display And Charging


The WIN 3 has long been criticized by users for providing only one Type C port. The WIN4 adopts a dual Type-C ports design (one is USB4) supporting  connections to an external display as well as charging!
