GPD is making a dual-screen OLED laptop that flips and folds

GPD has been creating handheld gaming PCs and miniature mobile PCs for years, but it’s now turning its attention to regular-sized laptops. After teasing a dual-screen laptop last week, GPD has now published an image of its upcoming GPD Duo — complete with two 13.3-inch OLED displays, a range of ports, and stylus support.

While we’ve seen new dual-screen laptops emerge over the past year, the GPD Duo looks like it might be the most practical yet. GPD is stacking the two 13.3-inch OLED panels so you get an extra screen on top. That’s similar to Asus’ new Zenbook Duo, but GPD is aiming to do this without a removable keyboard and kickstand, so the second display can fold behind the main one in what looks like a regular laptop form factor.

The second display on the GPD Duo can also fold down into a tablet form factor with support for stylus input. “When folded, the device is the size of an A4 sheet of paper, and when both screens are fully extended, it measures 18 inches,” says GPD in a post on X. The screens support 10-point touch, 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity for a stylus, and the Microsoft Pen Protocol for compatibility with the Surface Pen.

While GPD doesn’t list the ports on the Duo, it looks like there will be an Ethernet port at the rear, alongside an OcuLink port for eGPU connectivity. There are at least two USB ports on the side, and what appears to be some form of card reader along the left-hand side of the laptop. There are several other ports visible in the image, but determining exactly which ports are included is challenging due to its low resolution.

The GPD Duo will have a full-size keyboard and regular trackpad, which will set it apart from Lenovo’s Yoga Book 9i that shipped with a separate Bluetooth keyboard you placed on top of its second display.

It’s also not immediately clear what processor will be powering GPD’s Duo laptop. There’s a vague mention of a 35-watt TDP and that this will be an “AI PC,” but nothing to indicate this might be a new Copilot Plus PC with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon chips inside. Given Computex is less than a week away, I’m hoping we’ll hear a lot more about the GPD Duo soon.
